Australia Post released its Apple Watch app, providing a new way for online shoppers to collect parcels and receive delivery status alerts.
With a touch of their watch, shoppers will be able to view parcel delivery information and track their parcel, and customers will also be able to use their mobile devices to open parcel lockers by scanning their watch.
The app syncs with customers’ MyPost accounts, where they can track, schedule or redirect many of their deliveries and receive free notifications when they have something to collect. Parcels can be collected from up to 3,500 post offices and over 200 parcel locker locations.
Andrew Walduck, executive general manager information, digital and technology, Australia Post, said, “The new Apple Watch app is the latest in a series of digital innovations Australia Post has been working on to provide easy to use experiences for customers who want greater flexibility in managing delivery services.
“This announcement reinforces Australia Post’s broader commitment to creating more compelling experiences for customers across all channels in post offices, online and via new mobile technologies.”
