UPS recently started onboarding customers for its new UPS My Choice for business service, the first visibility and tracking solution in the U.S. designed for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs). Key features include an Internet-based tracking dashboard; advance delivery notifications, including day-before and day-of delivery notifications; and estimated time of delivery within two-hour windows for the majority of US postal codes.
The mobile-friendly solution addresses significant pain points for SMBs. Self-registration enables shippers and receivers to more easily monitor, plan, react to and control their incoming deliveries and outgoing shipments. Users can share access with additional members of their organizations, giving them the same visibility and control over deliveries. Additional features to be rolled out later this year include delivery change options for increased delivery flexibility and a new delivery alert which lets receivers know when the driver is nearby or within a very short time window of delivery from 1 hour to just 15 minutes away.
The launch extends the reach of the UPS My Choice platform to commercial customers – and builds on the success of UPS My Choice for home, which was introduced in the U.S. in 2011 and now has more than 60 million members globally. UPS My Choice for business will enable a consistent customer experience for both business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) companies.
