Classic Fine Foods puts plans for a premium delivery service in place with PODFather


Classic Fine Foods puts plans for a premium delivery service in place with PODFather

Classic Fine Foods, the specialist fine food purveyor and distributor, has selected dynamic route planning, job tracking and electronic proof of delivery software from PODFather. With its fleet of temperature-controlled vehicles running a next day, six day a week delivery service to a network of over customers across the breadth of the country, Classic Fine Foods needed a premium planning solution that could ensure continuity, reliability and great service across its distribution operation. Having reviewed what systems the market had to offer PODFather’s proven results, ease of integration and wealth of experience in the foodservice and home delivery sectors made it the obvious choice for Classic Fine Foods.

“As a business, Classic Fine Foods is passionate about delivering both exceptional products and a first-class service, that’s why we needed a software supplier with the same company ethos as our own,” comments Philip Tucker, Operations Manager at Classic Fine Foods. “From our first meeting it was clear that PODFather could give us an easy to use solution to tackling the complex problem of getting our premium fresh produce to the right place, at the right time and in the most efficient manner.”

Classic Fine Foods deliver exceptional, unique gourmet products and seasonal offerings to restaurants, hotels, and customer homes across the UK. Prior to the introduction of PODFather, the business relied on a mix of software solutions and paper-based processes to organise and manage its distribution operation. Now with PODFather in place Classic Fine Foods can look forward to automating the paper-based processes of the past and reaping the proven benefits associated with the introduction of advanced, yet easy to use, route planning, delivery management and ePOD technology.

PODFather will deliver a range of functionality to the Classic Fine Foods operation, namely dynamic route optimisation, delivery tracking, customer ETA notifications and electronic proof of delivery. The PODFather driver app, which runs on even the most basic of Android or iOS smart phones, will enable Classic Fine Foods to collect vehicle check and defect information, provide directional details for drivers, capture real time delivery tracking and completion data including vehicle temperature information, and ultimately to have a real time electronic proof of delivery record, with photos, for every drop.

“There are huge customer service benefits to be had by introducing PODFather to our operation,” adds Tucker. “With PODFather our customers, and our customer service teams, will have real time visibility of exactly where each delivery is, and when it is scheduled to arrive. Also having electronic proof of delivery that’s captured and sent back to our transport team on order completion is going to have a hugely positive impact on how we run our business.”

“We are delighted to be working with the team at Classic Fine Foods, an organisation with the same passion for delivering quality products and exceptional service as we have here at PODFather,” adds Colin McCreadie, Managing Director at PODFather. “This implementation will see the roll out of our full suite of functionality which covers everything from job management and route planning, through to job tracking, driver communication and electronic proof of delivery, all delivered in one easy to use cloud-based system and driver app.”

Booze Up Alcohol Delivery Service Partners with Sipsmith Gin


London UK, Wednesday 27th April 2020 – London’s favourite on-demand delivery service has announced a new partnership with the capital’s leading craft gin brand ‘Sipsmith’. Working together to bring Sipsmith to homes across London, the new partnership will now see Booze Up adding a number of award-winning Sipsmith Gins to the wide range of high-quality spirits available for delivery, in under 30 minutes.

‘Sipsmith Gin is now available within just 30 minutes all across the Capital’

Credited with pioneering the gin boom with its original London Dry Gin, Sipsmith is committed to continually harnessing the passion and talent of its distillers, allowing them to defy the boundaries of what is possible and create delicious high quality, handcrafted gin – in the most unique, innovative and delicious flavours.

The full range of delicately balanced craft gins will be available to order as from Booze Up from Friday 29th May 2020

In addition to the inclusion in Booze Up’s offering, the new partnership is due to coincide with the launch of Sipsmith’s latest limited-edition craft gin creation – Chilli and Lime Gin. Hand crafted using the best quality ingredients, it has been blended and refined to create the perfect zingy spirit with a little added heat, guaranteed to tantalise the taste buds of its sippers. Full of flavour and ready to drink served simply with tonic water, ice and a lime wedge – the Chilli & Lime Gin is also perfect for creating delicious cocktails, including Margaritas and Mojitos, with just a few additional ingredients.

Booze Up founder Ashleigh Fletcher commented: “Sipsmith is a prestigious name in the world of craft gin – ever better, they’re based here in London. We’re thrilled to be working together to complement our alcohol delivery service and boost our range with some of the finest gins available.”

Ashleigh continued: “We currently offer a wide range of big brand spirits and drinks, as well as a number of snacks and other useful essentials, delivered right across London. We deliver to our customers within 30 minutes. However, many of our alcohol deliveries arrive much quicker than this! Our fastest recorded delivery is just 40 seconds from the moment of order, to the point the customer received their ordered products. Our delivery execution is extremely stream-lined, and we are constantly striving to further reduce our delivery times and improve our customer experience. I expect the new Sipsmith partnership will extend our appeal to wider audiences and provide a fantastic platform for the new Sipsmith Chilli and Lime Gin to reach consumers during such unprecedented times.”

New free tool finally shows available delivery slots for all major UK supermarkets in one place


Delivery Slot Finder is a free chrome extension app that checks for supermarket delivery slots on your behalf. It supports all the major UK supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsburys, ASDA, Morrisons, Iceland, Waitrose & the Co-op.

As you can see in the short overview video on the Delivery Slot Finder website, a rare Sainsbury’s delivery slot was found whilst demonstrating the app. These slots are very difficult to find without the use of the tool.

The public release of the tool comes at a time when home delivery slots are still frustratingly difficult to find in the UK. By the time you’ve finished clicking through each of the sites and decided on which slot would work best for you, it’s probably already been taken by someone else. Delivery Slot Finder checks the supermarkets at the same time and shows you one aggregated view in under 30 seconds.

Built by software developer Rick Blyth initially to help family and friends find delivery slots during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is now freely available for the public to use. The tool will always be free but there will soon be a premium version that will give notifications when it finds delivery slots for your favourite supermarkets.

Finally, the tool will shortly support checking for “Click and Collect” slots for those supermarkets that support it. Click and Collect is becoming more popular due to the way it helps minimise time spent in close proximity to other shoppers.

Smith & Brock satisfy home delivery demand with PODFather


Smith & Brock, the purveyors of premium quality fruit, vegetables and fresh produce to London’s hotels, eateries and schools has launched its new ‘Knock Knock’ home delivery service with job management and customer notifications powered by PODFather. Smith & Brock’s latest venture sees its fleet of 25 vehicles making up to 1,000 deliveries a day to customer homes located throughout the London area. With a company motto of ‘expertly selected, proudly delivered’ Smith & Brock needed to ensure it had the right system in place to meet the company’s delivery service expectations. A PODFather customer since 2017, Smith & Brock saw the value that the system’s accurate job management, and automated customer notifications, could play in the launch of its home delivery service.

“With PODFather we have a simple solution to the complex problem of managing the allocation and execution of deliveries across our fleet,” comments Nick Fowler, Co-Founder of Smith & Brock Ltd. “When we decided to make the move into home delivery it was great to know we already had the right technology in place to ensure the efficient allocation of loads onto our vehicles, and the introduction of ETA notifications for our customers is a great addition to our PODFather solution.”

With PODFather’s cloud-based system in place the Smith & Brock team can manage the movement of its fleet of 25 vehicles, delivering to a wide range of postcodes across the London area. All drivers have the PODFather app, which can be installed on even the most basic of smartphones. The app allows drivers to collect all necessary vehicle check information before leaving the depot. Once out on the road the app allows the Smith & Brock team to track vehicle movements, upload job notifications to drivers, and collect electronic proof of delivery in real time.

“The real time visibility that PODFather gives us has some big customer service benefits,” adds Fowler. “Not only can we now automatically notify customers of their ETA once our drivers have completed and logged their vehicle checks and are ready to leave the depot, but we can also provide real time status updates on the day, while our vehicles are out on the road. This ensures customers are kept informed and are ready to accept their delivery in a safe and timely manner.”

“The current situation we find ourselves in is incredibly challenging for so many of our customers,” comments Colin McCreadie, Managing Director of PODFather. “Smith and Brock is an amazing example of how by adapting, the business has been able to avoid closure, save staff and help thousands of homes with the delivery of essential supplies. We are very proud to be supporting them, during this difficult time.”
