HomeValet’s SaaS solution connects online retailers and couriers with a temperature-controlled Smart Box outside of consumers’ homes. Enables completely contactless, unattended, and disinfected delivery 24/7 of frozen, refrigerated, and pantry items. Opens new channels in grocery, alcohol, and pharmaceutical home delivery.
TYSONS, Va., March 31, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — HomeValet’s comprehensive solution to severe, ongoing challenges in the home delivery space is primed to hit markets in the third quarter of 2020. HomeValet is experiencing immediate demand for its solution for contact-less, unattended, and UVC light disinfected home delivery of grocery and other products purchased online.
Walmart Inc., Kroger, Instacart, and other e-commerce players have seen a sharp spike in their online grocery businesses as the new coronavirus spreads. Experts say this uptick in buying activity could lead to widespread adoption and permanent consumer demand for contact-less, unattended and disinfected home delivery as Americans face the new reality of a worldwide pandemic.
HomeValet’s patented SaaS platform enables automated delivery of packages, groceries, and other goods directly to a secure, temperature-controlled Smart Box placed outside of consumers’ homes. The Smart Box is equipped with the capability to disinfect exposed surfaces of delivered items as well as the interior of the Smart Box between deliveries using UVC light.
The HomeValet customer experience is simple and easy. At checkout, customers are automatically registered as a “HomeValet shopper.” Deliveries are then tracked and monitored through the HomeValet delivery app all the way to the home, as the platform seamlessly integrates the retailer, courier and shopper from point of sale to delivery.
The HomeValet app allows customers to easily control Smart Box temperature settings, which will enable safe delivery and storage of all perishables, frozen goods, and prescription medicines. The Smart Box is easily configured for storage of multiple deliveries, even those requiring different temperature settings. As a result, room temperature, refrigerated, and even frozen items can all be delivered and stored together. Automated age and identity verification through the platform replaces the live signature process for delivery of medicines, alcohol, and any and all personalized items.

John Simms, HomeValets’s CEO and Founder says, “HomeValet’s safe delivery method, designed to fit the life of the consumer, eliminates the hassle of missed deliveries and stolen or contaminated packages. We’ve also opened up entirely new sales channels for grocery, alcohol, and pharmaceutical delivery.”
“We’re bringing Freedom, Convenience, and Peace of Mind to the online consumer,” shares COO and Co-Founder, Jack Simms. “Our platform represents an advancement in retail innovation that will unleash a wave of new opportunities.”
HomeValet offers growing opportunities for online retailers to increase brand loyalty, eliminate replacement costs, and increase sales. For couriers, HomeValet will eliminate delivery reattempts or replacements, as well as the costs and burdens of on-demand delivery scheduling.
A HomeValet subscription and Smart Box will be sold through retail partners online and in-store, and the HomeValet app can be downloaded through the App Store and Google Play.
