A Nielsen study found that online grocery sales are expected to explode from approximately two percent to 20 percent of all sales by 2023 — the savviest grocers are already repositioning themselves with same-day delivery solutions and seamless online experiences.
The next step for grocers is an end-to-end fulfillment solution for online and brick & mortar grocers — and it’s now become simple. Integrating the moving pieces of online orders, to in-store fulfillment, to last-mile delivery requires everything working in sync.
We’ve been hard at work creating out-of-the-box solutions for grocers to have this streamlined functionality in their stores.
Integrations with eCommerce Solutions
For grocers looking to own their eCommerce experience instead of staking their business on a marketplace applications, there are many CMS tools to launch functional eCommerce websites and apps. Deliv can seamlessly integrate with a number of these tools to provide a full-stack solution for grocers.
Content Management Systems
The Deliv platform has been used to power the same-day delivery of grocer’s sites powered by GrocerKey, MyWebGrocer, SelfPoint. These tools make it simple to build a branded web experience where you can manage inventory and items, and customers can shop and purchase.

In-store pick and pack
