Boxit wanted to introduce a simple, easy to access, cost-friendly, safe and technology-driven solution that helps people to store items that they don’t use regularly but wouldn’t want to throw away.
People living in metropolitan cities have something in common. They lack enough space to store their personal belongings. This has put them in a difficult situation where they are compelled to maintain their personal inventory within a limit. The only solution available in a situation like this was to find a common storage space that is easy to access, affordable and secure. But such a solution demanded the development of a platform where people can directly connect with storage providers and make requests to them to send, store and receive their personal items 24/7.
After brainstorming the features and functionalities to be bundled with the solution, our team came up with an idea for a platform that enables users to connect with reputable logistics companies who have spare space to offer and request them to store their items and take back the stored ones whenever they want, all through a single platform.
Using the solution, users can request a box with dimensions of their choice, choose pickup date & time, make payment and view the status of their request. The moment a user makes a request for storage, the information is communicated directly to the registered last-mile delivery service provider. Once the item is safely shifted to the remote storage, users have the options to see the items that in store by visiting the dashboard.
The solution was developed using the latest trends prevailing in the market. To make the interface attractive and useful to the users, we incorporated different trends like responsive design, transparent background and ghost buttons.
This core function enables users to request a box with dimensions of their choice, choose pickup date & time, make payment and view status of the request made.
The dashboard helps registered users to view the items in the store and request for return if needed.
Admin and sub admin category users get automated alert messages when the system meet with something unexpected. For example, if no pickup or delivery happens within a stipulated time, an alert message will be generated and is sent to all the administrators.
The solution developed by our team helped Boxit to introduce a brand-new solution that helps people with their personal storage needs. Now the people in the middle east do not have to sell or throw away their old possessions to make space for new items. The success of the solution helped Boxit to expand their presence to UAE, Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Kuwait. The solution has also helped the startup to win various awards and recognition.
