Albertsons Companies partners with Glympse
Albertsons Companies said it is enhancing its e-commerce platform with Glympse, a location sharing technology that will give shoppers real-time status of their grocery deliveries or click and collect orders.
With the partnership, the Boise, Idaho-based grocer is providing customers the option to sign up for notifications when they are finishing up with their delivery orders, allowing them to receive real time updates on the delivery process. Once their orders are en route, they will receive links to a live map of their delivery trucks and exact time of delivery.
“We want to make our e-commerce experience as simple and transparent as possible,” said Narayan Iyengar, senior vice president of digital and e-commerce at Albertsons Companies.
The service is available now on delivery orders at Albertsons, Safeway, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Randalls, Tom Thumb and Pavilions. Glympse is not available on orders fulfilled by Instacart.
