Key Challenges

Delivering bikes is hard and costly.

With the average bike delivery distance being 54.2km, getting it wrong can cost, a lot. FlammeRouge wanted to optimise their costs of admin, reduce cancellations. and eliminate costly delivery mistakes.

The old way :(

FlammeRouge had to manage client and order information over multiple spreadsheets, opening them up to admin and booking errors, and sinking time into constantly checking delivery availability and ensuring deliveries were allocated correctly.

Getting it wrong was costly, and we stepped in to help.

The new, Applybox way...

We transformed and automated their business workflow by:

  • introducing and adapting a smart CMS integration

  • building an automated 3rd party integration into bike delivery services

  • building in an optimal delivery path mechanism

This allowed FlammeRouge to take bike orders from their website, and quickly, easily and automatically feed them into get delivered in a cost-efficient way, massively improving the customer experience, delivery times, and reducing costs overall.
