“MobileIron and Appurity have been important partners in supporting our expansion,” said Gary O’Connor, CTO at Doddle. “MobileIron enables us to easily deploy apps and weekly updates to all our mobile devices. Appurity has developed and supports our core logistics app and ensures that our MobileIron deployment is configured and optimized using best practices.”

Great service relies on speed and convenience
With more than 100 retail partners, including Amazon and ASOS, a growing network of 80 stores and a quarter of a million customers, Doddle’s success depends on providing fast and convenient customer service. In just two and a half years, the company has developed a reputation for delivering great customer service, earning it a Net Promoter Survey score of 82.

With click and collect volumes predicted to triple to 220 million by 2020, Doddle has launched its own technology solution, Powered by Doddle, to support retailers to replicate the Doddle experience in their own stores. The technology sits on an Android app and makes it easy for retailers to provide parcel collection and return services for products purchased online, while benefitting from operational efficiencies, increased revenue and foot traffic. MobileIron Cloud enables Doddle to seamlessly update the Powered by Doddle app for retailer partners using Doddle-deployed hardware.

Designing for scalability, efficiency, and ease-of-use
To support Doddle’s expansion into other retailers’ store environments, the company redesigned its system to have a lighter footprint so that it can run efficiently on handheld Android devices. This allows employees to access core business apps and process transactions on their devices — even in environments with intermittent connectivity.

“MobileIron and Appurity make it easy to improve the efficiency of our customer service across our entire network,” said O’Connor. “We have confidence knowing that we have a 360 degree view of all our mobile devices, where they are, and what data they hold, so that we can redeploy them quickly and without any hassle.”

A partnership for improving scalability and productivity
Doddle is planning to grow from 80 stores to several hundred in 2017. Key to that goal is the ability to scale device and app deployment and to keep its mobile fleet updated and secure with MobileIron Cloud.

“We have ambitious growth plans for 2017 and will be increasing the reach of our services globally,” said O’Connor. “Ensuring that we have efficient processes for updating our technology while keeping an inventory of all our mobile devices across a growing store estate is operationally imperative and MobileIron and Appurity are key partners in helping us manage this.”

Doddle has already partnered with more than 100 retailers to offer the best parcel collection and returns service in the market.
