Many e-commerce players have started to communicate with their customers using chat support solutions like Clark. Still, we also witness customers wanting to message their on-demand service providers on mobile devices. As a result, various transactions are converted into real-time transactions that get fulfilled in minutes.

Various companies have given 100% on-demand fulfillment time estimates, regardless of the industry. Most of them target less than 30 minutes, only a few going up to hours at most.

Let's look at some examples:

In the transportation sector:

  • Luke - 10 minutes.
  • Uber - within minutes.

In the dining sector:

  • Open table - instant booking.

In Entertainment Sector:

  • Door dash - within an hour

In the Delivery sector:

  • Shyp - less than 20 minutes.
What has changed over the vast years is that when people order something, they'd expect things to get delivered in days, if not in weeks. Although Amazon Prime membership now promises to deliver products in an hour, customers' expectations have gotten higher. They want their products to be shipped even before they buy them.

 

Furthermore having an on-demand delivery app is the key to success, and AppsRhino's app development solutions are the best.

Many of the on-demand apps and marketplace have 1 on 1 relationship to get connected easily and have in-app messaging, which becomes quite useful compared to the standard SMS messaging because you can send longer texts, rich media with other information such as location photos in a simpler way.
