US-based e-commerce company eGrowcery has partnered with food ordering platform DoorDash to offer on-demand delivery services.
The partnership will allow retailers on eGrowcery’s platform to access DoorDash’s nationwide fulfilment network, DoorDash Drive, for delivery of their grocery orders.
In addition, retailers can retain full control over their own shopper data.
Based in Michigan, eGrowcery is a software as a service (SaaS) based e-commerce solution intended to serve grocery retailers both in the US and abroad.
The end-to-end, omnichannel platform is designed to be integrated with back-office and point-of-sale systems while allowing retailers to personalise their customer experiences.
DoorDash Drive provides supermarkets with access to an ‘expansive’ delivery fleet and a flexible delivery solution directly from the e-commerce experience.
eGrowcery CEO Patrick Hughes said: “By teaming up with DoorDash, we are able to offer our retail customers a turn-key solution to help them address their local commerce needs.
“The combination of eGrowcery’s intuitive shopping experience and fully integrated fulfilment process with DoorDash’s scale and convenience is very compelling.
“All of these benefits and retailers maintain a direct connection with shoppers through their own branded app, enabling them to profitably grow their business.”
eGrowcery’s integration of DoorDash Drive comes after it announced a partnership with US-based independent grocer, Rouses Markets, in February.
As part of this partnership, eGrowcery offers a branded e-commerce experience to Rouses Markets customers, allowing grocery orders to be delivered to the kerbside.
In December last year, DoorDash launched its ultra-fast grocery delivery service, DashMart, in New York City.
DashMart offers more than 2,000 items, including fresh and frozen grocery staples, snacks, household goods and local products.
Customers within the city’s delivery zone can take delivery of their orders within ten to 15 minutes.
