How Travis Perkins Leveraged Google App Engine to Offer Flexible Delivery

 

THE CHALLENGE

Travis Perkins could only take stock orders in store or over the phone and could only offer next day delivery. Builders wanted to be able to order online and choose their own delivery date.

THE SOLUTION

Using Google App Engine, we built a rules engine to monitor and report on stock levels and locations, and feed that data into an online application to display available delivery dates and allow builders to order instantaneously.

THE RESULTS

  • Increased visibility and flexibility, resulting in a 25% increase in orders
  • Customers can now place orders online – instead of only in store/by phone
  • Builders can now choose specific delivery dates for complete flexibility
