Co-founded by Sean Murray and Alan Hickey, WeBringg wants to change the way goods move by crowd sourcing drivers to connect businesses and their customers in minutes rather than days. WeBringg is an on demand delivery platform aiming to disrupt traditional logistics and providing retailers with a new competitive edge.

Webringg connects retailers’ websites with their team of crowd sourced drivers to deliver online sales same day or within a 1 hour window of choice.

In recent times retailers have experienced pressure from a multitude of sources affecting both the E-commerce and in-store sales. Amazon has been a major threat for a number of years due to its economies of scale. However up to 2014 this threat was only applicable to products with a delivery time of 3-5 days. Since 2014 Amazon has targeted the next day and same day delivery market, Amazon are in the process of globally rolling out the Amazon Prime Now service where a customer can order anything from electronics to groceries to be delivered within 90 minutes.

WeBringg co-founder Sean Murray has said “Consumers are now expecting a lot more from their online purchases. They want instant gratification, the same feeling they get when they are in a store. The term omni-channel has been around for a few years but we are now seeing retailers understanding the importance of giving a consistent experience across all channels. This now applies to the delivery of online sales. When a customer buys online and selects a WeBringg delivery, they will receive their goods in minutes not in days, they can track their goods live on a map and see their drivers estimated time of arrival. This combination of speed, predictability and live tracking thrills customers and gives retailers a real competitive advantage.”

WeBringg can also provide ecommerce businesses with a returns delivery service, delivery management system and a “click and don’t collect” service.
