Dec 21, 2020, New Delhi, India - HomeTown, one of the leading furniture and lifestyle retailers, part of the Future Group partnered with FarEye to orchestrate last-mile deliveries, achieve real-time visibility and enhance the customer experience. Recognized as India’s biggest store in homemaking, renovation, and decor, HomeTown improved delivery turnaround time by 50% and achieved a 60% reduction in customer calls due to proactive communication regarding orders and deliveries.
With people favoring to stay indoors, following social distancing measures, and working from the comfort of home, shopping habits underwent rapid change. People increasingly invested in items such as fitness equipment, home entertainment, and furniture. HomeTown witnessed a gradual month-on-month increase in online purchases post-unlock. The brand’s “Home Office” section saw a 3x increase in demand.
Amidst surging orders and the need to drive seamless on-time fulfillment, HomeTown was facing challenges in ensuring safe and satisfactory deliveries.
