Parcel2Go makes international parcel delivery easy with launch of mobile site

July 26, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
Online parcel delivery specialist Parcel2Go has announced the launch of its new dedicated mobile website.

Available at the site allows customers easy access to the main services offered through Parcel2Go's regular website. Within a few screens it is possible to get a quick quote, send a parcel, and track an existing order.

The spread of fast 3G internet across the UK has led to an increasing number of people using mobiles while they are out and about. Higher speeds mean it is now realistic to browse the internet, download music and shop online while away from home.

Mobile commerce is growing at an incredible pace. Research carried out by eBay in May suggested that goods and services bought through mobile handsets could reach £19bn by 2021. Amazon and eBay have launched dedicated mobile apps and the success of these has helped lead to an increase in the number of people who also need to organise parcel delivery while on the move. With Parcel2Go's new mobile site, finding a reliable courier quickly has become a reality.

Richard Mercer, Marketing Director at Parcel2Go, said: "The feedback we received from our customers was that mobile working has become increasingly important to them. Although the main Parcel2Go website can be accessed through mobile phones, we wanted to provide a simpler and quicker way for our customers to access the services they require on a daily basis, while using a small mobile screen.

"We're really excited about the potential of the new Parcel2Go mobile site. The feedback received so far is that people are finding it fast and easy to navigate. Our whole aim is to make the process of finding courier services and sending parcels with domestic and international parcel delivery companies as simple as possible. I think with the clear design and straightforward layout of the dedicated mobile site we've managed to achieve just that."
