A Delivery System on Hyperdrive - From Order to Delivery in Under 10 Minutes

Voice and SMS Notification Alerts Customer Testimonial by Anson Tsui from SpoonRocket   Running a startup is hard. Delivering within 10 minutes of an order is harder. That's why we're using Plivo. They have a voice and SMS API solution that just works. Our team can focus all of our efforts scaling SpoonRocket.

Critical Criteria for Real-time Notifications

Reliability and logistics are keys to success in growing any on-demand delivery service, especially for SpoonRocket. With a less than 10 minute window from order to delivery, every second counts. This means that SMS confirmations need to arrive under 1 second and voice notifications have to be deployed in real time. On top of the time sensitivity, reliability in SMS delivery and voice call clarity become critical as well. One undelivered SMS confirmation or dropped call notification could back up SpoonRocket’s delivery logistics and delay other pending orders.

On top of all that, SpoonRocket als needed easy integration with their web-based delivery system and a service that they could grow and scale with them in the US and abroad.
