Printt opens up Click & Collect option
Wednesday, October 28, 2020
Printing app Printt has opened up its platform to print firms interested in gaining a potential new business stream.
The app’s original roll-out plans were turned upside down by the Covid-19 situation. In April it launched its Printt Delivery home delivery option after its expansion with ‘Printt Now’ kiosks in high street locations was held back by the virus.
Chief business development officer Susie Clements said that the firm had now also actioned its ‘Click and Collect’ service via 200 Ryman stores, but was now opening this up to the wider industry, in particular to printers that already have some form of ‘walk in’ presence.
“We are now offering Click & Collect to anyone who wants to be a fulfilment partner,” she explained.
“A lot of people will have access to a local printer. All the printer needs to do is give us an email address that we can drive the order through.
“It’s a very simple and very quick solution because we’ve already built the app where people order.”
The printer would be added to the Printt map of local collection points.
The Printt model works on a revenue share. The app originated as a way for university students to easily print out coursework.
Clements said the ongoing situation with many people still working from home, rather than at offices with on-site printing facilities, had presented a new opportunity.
Printt has a community of more than 200,000 users. It has generated some 25m of printed pages so far.
