The customer receives a Parcelive device in time for their shipment. The device is scanned, linking it to the order and placed inside of the parcel where it will stay for the duration of its trip.
Parcel is Live
The parcel is now self aware and will report back to the user on it’s location and condition in real time, no matter the country. The user will also be alerted to any events with the parcel such as it being dropped, opened, or exceeding a temperature range.
The receiver then removes the device from the parcel and pushes a single button prompting the display of a return address. The device is then posted back without the need for a stamp or envelope. Just push and post. Easy!
Delivering Truth At Scale
We know that for those in the logistics industry the pain lies not in the tracking of individual parcels, but in gaining useful and profitable knowledge on a scale that reaps benefits across an entire supply chain. We also know that implementing any new technology into a network is extremely difficult, that’s why parcelive comes without the need for any additional infrastructure and very little systems integration. We define Truth At Scale in 3 different ways.
Parcelive is each individual parcels very own customer service agent. By creating a direct relationship between the parcel and user Parcelive replaces the need for online and over the phone quires with real time data.
With Parcelive you are able to uncover the truth of what's happening across your network. This means disputes leading to chargebacks can now be resolved based around hard data and not on 'he said she said' evidence.
Parcelive gives users a global outlook on their network, uncovering any costly bottlenecks or locations at which specific incidents are occurring with shipments. With transparency in the supply chain companies can now rectify inefficiencies.
The Parcelive Device
Parcelive is a post card sized device that contains an embedded sim and six embedded sensors that allow it to report back on the location and condition of your parcel. It is equipped with an e-paper screen that allows for the display of a return address and a long lasting battery to ensure your parcel is sending data all the way until its destination.
The Parcelive device has fully customisable packaging and is re-branded after each use to the needs of the specific customer. Packing of the device includes a pre paid postal license allowing for the device to be returned for re-use without any charge to the customer.
Parcelive is a worldwide service and will be effective anywhere there is a mobile phone signal. Users will not only receive information on the location of their parcel, but also real time alerts if their parcel was:
