VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / July 11, 2017 / ParcelPal Technology Inc. (OTC PINK: PTNYF) (CNSX:PKG) (PT0.F) (''ParcelPal'' or the ''Company'') the Vancouver-based on demand delivery company is pleased to announce the official launch of the ParcelPal's iOS consumer on-demand delivery application.
Following the Company's previous announcement on May 24th, 2017 regarding the beta launch of ParcelPal's iOS on-demand delivery app, the Company has made the app readily available for download to the public on the Apple App store. The ParcelPal app can be found here: https://appsto.re/ca/1OThdb.i.
The ParcelPal app was beta tested from late May to the beginning of July. The beta test included over 100 users and 100 Vancouver restaurants. Select beta test users were able to order from their favorite restaurants through ParcelPal and have the food delivered to their doorsteps within an hour or less with a tap of the app.
The first phase of the application is launching with food delivery and will soon offer other verticals of delivery such as alcohol, retail, and a "go get it" feature where users can order virtually anything and have it delivered in under an hour. This entry into the quick service restaurant market adds significant value to the ParcelPal platform, opening up a massive market of delivery and potential revenue streams. ParcelPal has now expanded their operational hours to seven days a week and into evenings. The Company has increased marketing efforts locally aiming at everyday Vancouverites.
President and CEO, Kelly Abbott, states, ''Nothing is more satisfying than seeing our Vancouver beta launch roll out flawlessly. We are very excited to make the app available to the public to download and experience. When it comes to the fastest way to deliver something in the city, there is no one that does it as quickly, easily, and for as inexpensive as us.''
Abbott continues, ''We are aiming to unlock a huge market of local commerce within any city, and we are confident that we can bring thousands of local brick-and-mortar businesses online and onto the ParcelPal platform. We'll continue to explore opportunities in eCommerce and logistics within local markets.''
To celebrate the launch and to give select Vancouverites a taste of the best restaurants the city has to offer, ParcelPal is offering free delivery for orders in the Vancouver delivery zone using the promo code.
