Bringing online shopping to clients’ doorstep

The same-day-delivery system provides Tiramizoo’s clients and their customers with a bright new shopping experience and sets new standards of product delivery in retail. While working on the integration project we aimed to synchronize two different communications protocols to enable the creation and cancellation of delivery orders.

Challenge

Tiramizoo GmbH is Germany’s leading online courier service that redefines urban logistics. The Munich-based company is a pioneer in the city courier sector, delivering sophisticated software solutions for the prompt delivery of a wide variety of goods. The solutions are meant to serve e-tailers and retailers dealing in consumer electronics, logistics, fashion, automotive industry and the like.\ The company needed to craft server to server communication system using SOAP and REST APIs. They wanted to grow their SaaS transport management system and enable users to:

  • enable status tracking in real-time
  • automate customer communication by SMS or email along the entire delivery chain
  • record and analyse existing delivery data
Process and Project Scope

Tiramizoo looked for experienced developers to form a close-knit team with their engineers. They commissioned us to augment their software developers and integrate their same-day-delivery API with one of its key clients’ webshop.

Business Value

Improved Same Day Delivery software used for more than 690,000 deliveries

The Tiramizoo technology impresses at all levels – from its ease of integration, optimised route planning, right through its national and international scalability. Already operating in over 80 metropolitan areas in Germany and Austria they deliver their service to companies dealing in consumer electronics, logistics, fashion, automotive industry and the like.

The implemented PROXY communication ensures safe and reliable processing of delivery-order status updates as well as their delivery of the updates to the Tiramizoo’s client’s webshop. Handling cross-communication between 3rd-party solutions using SOAP and REST APIs we were able to build a system which:

  • allows a variety of data formats
  • ensures security
  • provides superior performance
  • is highly extensible

With its scalable software Tiramizoo is redefining urban logistics and some of their more prominent clients are MediaMarkt, Saturn, Nespresso and Dehner.
