GetSwift, a New York-based software-as-a-service (SAAS) logistics technology provider, has announced the acquisition of delivery management platform, Delivery Biz Pro.
Delivery Biz Pro focuses on the produce, meal kit, dairy, farm-to-table, and water sectors. The company offers a subscription-based cloud service for businesses with recurring product orders, using technology to streamline processes involved in residential or commercial delivery.
Services from Biz Pro include automatic intelligent route assignment and account management functions, allowing multiple functions to be available in a single piece of software for delivery services. GetSwift’s acquisition of this will expand their logistic capabilities across the food and beverage industry.
GetSwift’s CEO, Bane Hunter, said: “Delivery Biz Pro is a proven and leading delivery management system in the attractive recurring delivery market in North America. With its diverse product offering including front-end ordering, route mapping and business intelligence, DBP and GetSwift will enable customers to have an end-to-end last mile solution in key markets.
“We are very excited about the potential to leverage our infrastructure and resources for our combined growth.”
The acquisition will also give Delivery Biz Pro the opportunity to expand their scale in the delivery solutions sector.
Judd Payne, CEO and co-founder of Delivery Biz Pro, said: “We’ve had a myriad of options, but the opportunity to become a part of GetSwift and to work closely with its executive management was a very important factor for us. We aim to leverage the sales and growth infrastructure of GetSwift, expand our scale, and accelerate our ability to penetrate the last mile delivery market with our joint cloud-based solution.”
