Delivery platform unicorn Glovo chooses StrongPoint as preferred supplier for grocery picking solutions
(Oslo, Norway, February 2, 2020) StrongPoint today announced that the on-demand delivery platform unicorn Glovo has chosen StrongPoint as its preferred partner for grocery picking technology.
As Europe’s fastest-growing delivery company, Glovo has an estimated valuation of over USD 1 billion making it a technology ‘unicorn’. The company is present in 22 countries around the world. Glovo provides on-demand groceries via its retail grocery partners which include Walmart, Carrefour and Spar, and saw unprecedented levels of growth due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The terms of the partner licence agreement allow Glovo to be the first to use StrongPoint’s SAAS cloud-based third generation picking technology. StrongPoint’s technology is to be integrated into Glovo’s logistics platform and used by grocery retailers to process online orders.
The first project of the partnership will be deploying the technology to a leading grocery chain in Europe and is expected to start in Q1 2021. The intent is to deploy StrongPoint’s third-generation grocery picking technology to other countries where Glovo is partnering with local and international grocery retailers and for StrongPoint to earn recurring revenue through those channels.
“The on-demand economy has changed rapidly in 2020 with delivery providers around the world pivoting to offer grocery deliveries due to increased demand following the pandemic. Glovo’s selection of StrongPoint as its picking technology partner underlines the vast global potential for our scalable grocery picking solution,” said Jacob Tveraabak, CEO of StrongPoint.
