Safaricom-backed delivery startup Sendy has launched SendyConnect to help bring transparency onto its growing platform in a move expected to bring convenience and save time for its users.
“With SendyConnect, you share a delivery Driver — and the cost — with another Sendy user who has requested a delivery along a similar route,” announced the firm. “You still get Sendy-style convenience, but now, at an even more affordable rate. Just choose the SendyConnect option and get allocated a Driver before pickup.”
With SendyConnect users are expected to save up to 40% on each delivery, making it more affordable than boda boda riders or in-house or company drivers.
SendyConnect allows users to share their Driver with other Sendy users, and the Driver will aggregate multiple orders at once along a common route.
“At Sendy, we are on a mission to unlock the potential of Kenya by connecting small businesses with local Drivers across the country.” added the firm. “Our technology platform has the power to transform businesses by making delivery simple, transparent, and affordable.”
The firm has another feature dubbed SendyDirect which is a premium option to get a user their own designated Driver to pick up an order and immediately drop it off at its destination with no stops in between.
