App gains driver fleet

CONVENIENCE retail app provider Jisp has entered into a new partnership offering retailers access to a fleet of drivers.

The move sees Jisp offering store owners access to drivers to support their home delivery offer through Zoom 1hr Delivery.

Zoom 1hr Delivery has a driver fleet of more than 300 across the UK. It has been primarily operating in the West Midland and Wales, but is in talks alongside Jisp to expand coverage.

The two firms are looking to use Jisp’s partnerships with Bestway and Nisa, as well as Zoom’s relationship with Co-op, to extend their reach nationwide.

Ilann Hepworth, managing director of Jisp, said: “I am really thrilled about this announcement.

“Last-minute delivery has always been the missing link in our proposition as many retailers either didn’t have enough staff, time or vehicles to truly benefit from providing Jisp’s home delivery service.”
