Supermercato24 today numbers 18 employees, 3 offices, 58 provinces, 1800 messengers, 5000 orders delivered per month and more than 1 million of funding. Results that 5 years ago nobody would have imagined and that today, thanks to the diffusion of smartphones, they are no longer a dream.
18 employees, 3 offices, 58 provinces, 1800 messengers, 5000 orders delivered per month and more than 1 million of funding.These are the numbers that after a year of activity counted by Enrico Pandian, founder of Supermercato24.
Enrico and his team, managing a software company, have found a way to combine the need to receive shopping at home within an hour with the availability of shoppers in the area where the order was placed. All this thanks to special algorithms, which do not simply lead to an online supermarket, but to a crowdsourcing logistics network active in Bergamo, Brescia, Monza, Padua, Rome, Treviso, Venice, Verona and Vicenza.
The name they chose to present themselves online was born thinking directly of consumers. "Supermarket" is in fact a term commonly used by all families, single persons and students away from home. The number “24” which refers to the hours of the day, has been added for all those who do not have time to shop or simply prefer to receive the goods at home, ordering at any time, 24/24. Shoppers go to the supermarket on behalf of other people choosing the best products: they recreate exactly the same experience that each and every one of us does.
As the founder explains, five years ago this type of activity could not have come to life. For a year now, thanks to the diffusion of smartphones, it has managed to carve out a space in the online retail market.
This system also offers both an online service to the final consumer, and a possibility of employment to anyone who wants to choose their working hours and earn directly at the time of delivery of the goods.
Supermarket24 is, therefore, a digital opportunity for everyone.
