GEO and NZ Post trial to cut time-wasting on the job

Posted on 17-Oct-2016 19:53 | Filed under: News

One of the biggest time wasters for mobile workers in New Zealand is having to wait around for parts or materials for jobs while they are onsite. Mobile workforce software company GEO has launched a nationwide trial with NZ Post’s one-click courier service, BringIt, that allows customers to have parcels delivered quickly, usually within an hour and straight from their smartphones, at a discounted rate.


GEO says the BringIt service will drastically reduce waiting times for deliveries on-site or to the workshop and allow businesses to transport parts and materials quickly across the country. Field workers won’t need to carry all parts, tools or materials they may need in their work vehicles.


Express delivery also allows businesses to invest much less capital in spare parts. That cash can be used elsewhere in the business.


GEO customers who sign up for the trial will get discounted deliveries when they take advantage of NZ Post’s express delivery service. All they need to do is use BringIt’s easy-to-use mobile or desktop booking system.


GEO’s CEO and Managing Director Anna Cicognani says GEO is delighted to offer its customers a discounted bundle with NZ Post.


“We know this service will make our customers more efficient by having parts and materials delivered to their door, with less cash tied into material sitting in the van or in storage. No driving around, no need to find parking, from online to your workshop – or directly to the job.”
