One of our Swiss business customers offers a special same-day delivery option. It allows for purchased articles to be delivered to end customers exceptionally fast. The goods are delivered personally by bicycle courier within only 4 hours after they have been ordered via the web shop.
A connection between the eCommerce system and the NTS Retail software solution provides the basis for this highly convenient delivery method, while a respective web service ensures cross-channel processing. As soon as a customer buys or reserves a product online, the resulting order is handed over to the NTS Retail system for further processing.
