A couple of weeks back, Weezy — the hyperlocal delivery startup, launched its service in Bristol. And now, the company has announced a partnership with what3words to make locations easier to find and every Weezy delivery seamless.
Co-founded in London in 2013 by Chris Sheldrick, what3words is a human-friendly way to share very precise locations with other people.
The company has divided the world into a grid of 3m squares and given each a unique what3words address – made of three dictionary words.
For example, the viewpoint at the top of Hampstead Heath can be found at ///single.glow.most.
Further, what3words is optimised for voice input and contains built-in error prevention to immediately identify and correct input mistakes.
Why this partnership?
Weezy’s new partnership enables customers to order their groceries to wherever they happen to be.
Also, it removes the need for phone calls asking for additional directions and helps to provide every customer with the very best Weezy experience.
Chris Sheldrick, Co-founder, and CEO of what3words. “Consumer expectations for on-demand deliveries are rising. They expect fast deliveries, without holdups, and without having to pick up the phone to give directions. Weezy’s relationship with what3words helps to exceed those expectations with quick and accurate deliveries to exactly where their customers want them.”
Kristof Van Beveren continued, “It’s convenience without compromise. Whether a hard-to-find home, a Lucozade to a tired rower, nappies to a mum on a bench, or even dog treats for that puppy on the green – you simply add in your what3words address on checkout and sit back while you wait for your Weezy delivery.”
Founded by Kristof Van Beveren and Alec Dent, UK-based Weezy is a leading on-demand superfast supermarket that delivers groceries in just 15 minutes.
The company delivers products range from fresh produce, cupboard staples, pharmacy items, cleaning products, alcohol, and more, with 2,000 separate product lines stocked.
Orders can be placed between 8 am and 11 pm, and Weezy customer delivery representatives stock, pack and deliver the groceries within minutes of customers placing an order, and only deliver on bicycles or electric mopeds.
“We’re really excited to be offering our customers what they want when they need it,” said Kristof Van Beveren, Co-founder and CEO of Weezy. “With lockdown easing in the UK, we know that friends and family want to get together safely outside and we wanted to make it simple for them to get quality products anywhere. Now they can meet for a picnic or even a BBQ on the beach without having to carry anything there. Weezy can deliver a full shop or just some beers.”
After a hugely successful first year in London, and following launches in Bristol and Brighton last month, Weezy is also continuing its national expansion into the Manchester area today.
