DRYV is an on-demand laundry and dry cleaning service, currently operating in 3 markets: Chicago, Detroit and Los Angeles.
DRYV partners with high quality retail cleaners, offering pickup and delivery services on their behalf. They also work with property management companies and businesses to ensure people have access to a convenient and affordable laundry and dry cleaning solution whether they’re at home or at work.
Building and scaling a delivery fleet is capital-intensive and extremely complex. The team behind DRYV collected loads of data to understand the demands of the market and worked on building cutting-edge technical and logistical infrastructure to support it. Route planning and dispatching was purely a manual task, at least in the beginning.
“We had someone sit in front of a computer, plot the stops on the map and drag things around to create a route,” said Dan Parsons, co-founder and CEO of DRYV. “That’s fine when you have one driver, but it soon became way too complex and we knew we were spitballing it.”
DRYV integrated Routific’s API to automate and optimize their dispatching operations.
“The API was very straightforward and easy to integrate. Everything was well documented and the team behind Routific provided us with superb support,” Parsons said. “For such a complex piece of technology, integration was a quick and painless experience.”
Routific also completely eliminated the need for a manual dispatcher. DRYV simply calls the API throughout the day and receives optimize routes in return. When last-minute orders and changes to orders come in, DRYV can rely on the API to respond quickly with a new result.
Our mission is to leverage technology and to pass that value to both the retail cleaners we partner with and the consumers that trust us to get their laundry delivered clean and on time. Routific is essential in this process.
