Indigo Books & Music, Inc. Selects Convey to Ensure Effortless Delivery Experience, Outcomes

September 10, 2019

AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 10, 2019--

Convey, Inc., today announced that Indigo Books & Music, Inc. (TSX:IDG), the world’s first cultural department store for booklovers, has selected Convey’s delivery experience management ( DEM ) software to increase visibility and proactive communication on the real-time status of customer orders and shipments.

As Indigo expands its network beyond a single carrier, the company wants to provide customers a more seamless, branded experience, proactively manage delivery issues, and use analytics to support network decisions.

With Convey, Indigo will have a centralized, custom-branded delivery tracking and notification system that proactively informs customers about the real-time status of their packages, regardless of carrier. Shipping status information will be presented in an easy-to-use format and enable Indigo to drill down into carrier performance and customer feedback.

“As we continue expanding our supply chain capabilities by leveraging cutting-edge technology, we’re excited to partner with Convey,” said Jonathan Rosemberg, senior vice president, Merchant Operations & Program Enablement. “Convey will allow our customers to track their packages in real-time regardless of carrier, while providing us deeper business insight across our network, enabling Indigo to deliver even more customer joy.”

Indigo chose Convey for its fast time-to-value in implementation, and the ability to easily connect with existing CRM systems. Early adopters of DEM software see an 80 percent improvement in exception resolution speed on average, and a 6x return on investment overall.

“We’re excited to work with a leading, customer-centric retailer like Indigo that’s continually innovating to improve both the supply chain and the shopper experience,” said Rob Taylor, CEO of Convey. “We look forward to helping Indigo reduce ‘where is my order?’ calls and uphold their high standard of brand promises.”
