How Singapore-based Startup Deliver.sg Manages Long-distance Delivery with its DAAS Solution

Deliver.sg is a long-distance food delivery platform where you can enjoy your favorite food. It was founded by mechanical engineer Krishnamani Kannan.

Market opportunities and traction

Singapore is by far one of the leading country in Asia. But there were many gaps in the delivery market, like the limited reach of delivery up to a 3–4 km radius. Only third-party logistics providers are available for the job. Restaurants find it hard to attract riders. Further, they have to shut down their whole home delivery operation if there is a lack of riders and the delivery experience is inconsistent. And also, there is a shortage of professional delivery personnel and an overreliance on freelance riders. And that’s why the idea of Deliver.sg came about: making some deliveries better than others, resulting in certain restaurants getting more favorable results.

Think outside the box = DAAS

Deliver.sg is an innovative AI-based DAAS framework. DAAS, DELIVER AS A SERVICE, is an online service beyond simple food delivery. It introduces many new revenue models that promise to propel its rapid growth. In addition to delivering typical food, the startup offered fixed and subscription-based delivery payment models. To make the subscription model attractive, Deliver.sg also provides free marketing support to its subscription payment partners.

Other innovations that the startup has introduced in its service model are route optimization or in-app route suggestions that will optimize distance covered and delivery times. It also promises to introduce several delivery features that will further help the customer and make the whole delivery process a breeze! Drive and speed management features, which the firm is working on presently, ensure better rider management besides solving the thorny issues of speed.

Couple of Deliver.sg

Deliver.sg is the brainchild of two industry leaders with many decades of experience: Krishnamani Kannan, co-founder and CEO, and Naresh Kumar, co-founder and COO.

Kannan has an extensive and chequered professional career in the IT industry spread over two decades, which includes 5+ years in the F&B industry and 20+ years in the managing teams. His IT expertise and financial acumen give Deliver.sg had the technological vision to have an edge and ensure company finances remain in the pink of health.

On the other hand, Naresh has worked for over 5 years as an F&B consultant, with an additional 5+ years spent in the logistics sector. He also has extensive experience in social media and branding, and his expertise helps Deliver.sg acquire a distinct and appealing brand positioning.

Skyrocketing progressive breakthrough
