Boston, MA (PRWEB) November 16, 2015
As the busiest shopping season of the year approaches, landlords across the country are preparing for an even bigger influx of packages. This year, consumers plan to do nearly half of all their holiday shopping online and more than one in five smartphone users will shop from their mobile device, according to a new study from the National Retail Federation. That is why today, Package Concierge, developer of the digital package locker solution for multifamily and student housing, announced it is preparing to launch a mobile app that delivers anytime, anywhere access to its web-based system that helps residents and landlords manage and receive packages.
“Just as retailers continue to innovate to meet the evolving needs of their digitally-focused consumers, the multifamily housing industry must re-think its strategy for how they manage and accept the increase in shipments," said Georgianna Oliver, CEO of Package Concierge. “Our new app was developed in response to growing demand for our innovative solution. We’re committed to delivering technology that makes retrieving packages easier and more efficient, so this app is a natural next step for Package Concierge. We know our customers will appreciate having our functionality at their fingertips.”
With the new Package Concierge mobile app, customers will be notified as soon as the carrier has delivered or retrieved a package to and from the system, and users can now use the barcode feature to retrieve packages and manage account information from their device.
“With Package Concierge, we’ve improved the way we manage shipments, which has resulted in increased productivity for our community management teams and helps us provide better service to residents,” said Dean Holmes, chief operating officer of Madison Apartment Group. “We are focused on delivering the latest and greatest technologies to our residents and this mobile app showcases that Package Concierge feels the same. We anticipate the app will help us continue to improve upon our ability to provide residents with a better way to manage their packages.”
This news comes on the heels of the company’s enhanced offering that allows apartment residents to send and return packages through their system. The company also recorded impressive growth this year, reaching 1,000,000 package transactions without a single service call or package lost and expanding service to 24 states.
Package Concierge is showcasing its technology and package lockers at booth 212 at this week’s NMHC OpTech Conference & Exposition in Dallas, TX.
The app will be available on iPhone/iPad and Android devices in January. For more information about the company and its solution, please visit http://www.packageconcierge.com.
