Smart lock specialist August Home has announced a new partnership with same day delivery provider Deliv.
In a statement issued yesterday (9 January) August Home said the partnership will offer online shoppers greater convenience as Deliv’s delivery staff will be able to “place packages and groceries securely inside their homes, garages and multifamily buildings”.
The August Access in-home delivery software platform works with August Smart Locks as well as Yale residential and commercial locks.
“In-home delivery provides an exciting new paradigm for shoppers, freeing up time while goods and groceries are safely and securely delivered inside the home. August and Deliv recently partnered on a pilot with Walmart to test new in-home delivery services that make people’s lives easier. With Deliv, we are making August Access available to any retailer to offer their customers the option of secure in-home delivery,” said Jason Johnson, CEO of August Home.
Daphne Carmeli, CEO of Deliv, added: “Deliv provides the last mile fulfilment solution for a broad retailer network across the country while August Home supplies the technology to take the final step into the home for a totally seamless experience, start to finish.”
Deliv currently operates in 35 markets and is backed by UPS.
