Address Lookup & Validation for Food & Grocery Delivery

How to capture customer delivery addresses that work with your GPS, delivery and routing solutions

The longest acceptable wait, on average, for takeaway food delivery

No longer the domain of the big brand supermarkets, platform-to-consumer delivery groups and local restaurant-to-consumer takeaway business, independent grocery and specialist food retailers have come of age due to the massive demand increase for home delivery caused by Covid-19 government lockdowns and self-isolation needs.

After almost a year of adapting to growing needs for home delivery where the major grocery providers have struggled to upscale their delivery operations, local retailers such as bakeries, butchers, farm shops, and even convenience stores have turned to quick but sometimes inefficient solutions to launch doorstep delivery to local customers. Fetchify can help to optimise those processes and reduce admin and errors by capturing complete and accurate delivery addresses, phone numbers and even email addresses for your customers by integrating into web forms, online shops, CRM or order management software.
