Laying the groundwork for the best order pickup solutions
We’re not here just to sell you smart pickup lockers. We know that the best order pickup solutions start with in-depth discussions, clear goals, and a shared vision of what you want to accomplish.
Across dozens of markets and thousands of locations, Apex smart pickup solutions are helping customers keep orders secure with less labor. And their customers enjoy the fast, seamless experiences they love. We’re ready to help you achieve that, too.
First things first: The Apex process
Whether you’re managing food takeout and delivery orders, or ecommerce orders, our process is pretty much the same. We start by asking lots of questions. Then we establish a shared vision of what the goal is and how we’ll work together to reach it.
Getting to know you and understand your organization’s challenges, goals, processes, and preferences.
We start with a complimentary initial meeting where we get to know each other and see if our solution is a good fit for your organization. The conversations will then continue as we learn about your current processes and challenges, your goals for order pickup, your existing technologies, your purchasing process, and what other teams or departments will play a role. Using what we’ve discussed, we present a shared vision for your project that will guide both teams in bringing it to life.
Based on a shared vision, both teams begin the prep work that goes into creating your ideal pickup solution.
Next, we create a comprehensive to-do list for how we’ll create your ideal order pickup solution. Then, we hit the ground running, moving on to steps like site evaluation, a review of your existing technology platforms, software integration, and coordinating with key players on your team as well as outside vendors. We’ll make sure everyone’s roles and responsibilities are clear so we can keep all the moving parts on track. And don’t worry, you’ll have plenty of help along the way from experts who’ve done this before.
Making sure your solution gets off to a great start with detailed planning, preparation, and training.
The day the truck rolls up and delivers your lockers, you just might get goosebumps! Within hours, they’ll be set up the way you planned and connected to power and Internet. Thanks to all the pre-work we’ve done, your launch day will go smoothly, but if there are any hiccups, we’re right there with you to figure it out. We’ll help with employee training, assist customers, and provide training documentation. We can also help you get the data and analytics you need to keep optimizing your solution now and in the future.
