Announcing the launch of PurplKite

PurplKite is a hyperlocal on-demand delivery platform. PurplKite allows the user to request for a delivery to complete a local intercity pick up and drop on-demand. When the user requires an item to be picked up from a specific location and to be dropped of at another location, the user can request for a delivery boy.
By using their extensive network of delivery boys spread across the city, the operations team is able to very easily support the request for on-demand pick-ups from a large number of users very efficiently.
The operations is very heavily supported by cutting edge technology making operations very efficient as well as very seamless.The technology has two main facets: An Android App for the End User and An Android App for the Delivery Boys. Both are powered by a powerful and robust backend server.
The app allows the user to check the availability of all the nearby “Kiteans” (delivery boys) and then place an order for a “Pick & Drop” – the user can place an order with immediate effect or can have it scheduled for a specific time in the future. Once the order has been confirmed, the user can choose to pay directly in the app using a Payment Gateway or using Cash at either the pick up place or the drop off location. The user can then track the delivery boy in real time.

The platform also offers another unique feature : “Get Me Something”. Using this the user can request for a specific set of items and also optionally specify a vendor. The Kitean will then procure these items either from the specified vendor or from an appropriate vendor and will deliver these items to the location specified by the user. The user will require to pay for the delivery charges as well as the charges for the item at the time of the dropoff.
