Turkish online grocery retailer Tazedirekt.com, an Aslanoba G1da company, has selected Descartes Systems Group’s advanced home delivery solution to manage next-day delivery operations for fresh dairy and meat products. Descartes, a provider of modular software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions focused on improving the productivity, performance, and security of logistics-intensive businesses, is especially strong in routing, scheduling, tracking, and measuring delivery resources (via telematics) as well as planning, allocating, and executing shipments. LA Software Group, a Descartes United by Design partner in Turkey, will lead the implementation process.
 
Tazedirekt.com (“taze” in Turkish means “fresh”) is a vertically integrated grocery retailer that controls the end-to-end supply chain, from farm to kitchen. By removing intermediaries, it ensures that its meat and dairy products provide the highest quality and the best value for its customers. Descartes' solution enables retailers to profitably offer customers significantly more delivery and value-added service options at the point of order. It also provides greater control over delivery execution, helping to ensure an overall positive delivery experience that serves as a foundation for higher customer loyalty.
 
Developed by working with leading retailers around the world, Descartes' home delivery solution helps streamline and optimize the delivery process from appointment scheduling through to proof-of-delivery (POD) in order to maximize customer service in a cost-effective manner. It combines sophisticated continuous delivery appointment and route optimization technology with functional capabilities that address the entire delivery lifecycle, from delivery appointment scheduling, delivery route planning, execution and dispatch, GPS-enabled mobile tracking, gathering POD, and delivery status notifications. A Web-based architecture connects and synchronizes all of the internal and external parties involved in the delivery process.
