So you might have heard of ParcelPal before but wondered, “How did they come up with it?” or maybe you haven’t, in this case, here’s our story. About a year ago the four of us were out having a few beers, talking business, bouncing ideas off one another and the conversation quickly turned to the rapid rise in popularity of on-demand services.
There’s been a monumental shift in consumer behaviour over the past decade, driven by the rapid rise of data-enabled mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Online shopping is quickly gaining widespread acceptance among Canadians, with Canada Post reporting that over three-quarters of all Canadian households made web-based purchases during 2014.
Consumers have embraced the concept of the on-demand economy, enjoying near-instant access to products and services in record numbers. On-demand media streaming services are providing an attractive alternative to traditional cable television and catching a flick at the local cinema, while marketplaces like Amazon, Esty and Ebay provide shoppers with 24/7 access to their favourite products at will.
