ICT – E-Commerce
“I built the original concept around providing consumers with cheaper deliveries by utilising excess capacity with shipping providers. However we found over time the biggest demand was coming from e-commerce merchants.”
Scurri is a carrier management platform that powers ordering, shipping & delivery for ambitious retailers, connecting to over 700 carrier services.
The delivery experience is mission-critical to online retailers, and the dramatic acceleration of e-commerce sales and parcel volumes seen over the past year is here to stay. However, the last-mile delivery market is fragmented, and retailers do not have the time or inclination to build and maintain their own integrations with carriers.
By enabling e-commerce merchants to connect to a wide range of more than 700 carrier services, the Scurri platform provides greater choice and control over the delivery process, along with better visibility over courier performance. It is easy to set up, secure, flexible, reliable, and scalable as needs change.
Scurri powers millions of parcel deliveries each month, enabling retailers to create accurate labels, track shipments from dispatch to delivery and provide useful analytics. Scurri has already secured high-profile customers in the retail space, including eBay, Everything5pounds, Vision Direct, Gousto and many more.
In June 2021, Scurri announced a €9 million investment to accelerate growth in the U.K. market. The company plans to triple their workforce in the next two years.
Speaking about the latest funding round, CEO and Founder of Scurri, Rory O’Connor stated:
“Since our inception in 2010, and especially over the past 5 years, we have grown into a trusted delivery management platform with a growing list of blue chip and fast growth companies with operations across the globe. The pandemic and the resulting acceleration of eCommerce adoption as well as trading and logistic complexities arising from Brexit have essentially resulted in significantly increased demand for reliable delivery management software and solutions. For Scurri this effectively represents a number of years’ advancement of the UK market in terms of online penetration and hence our need to now advance our growth and investment plans.”
“We are also extremely proud and thankful to our amazing team here at Scurri who, despite the upheaval of both the pandemic’s disruption as well as increased trading and logistics complexities fuelled by Brexit, rose to this double-e challenge and helped the company capitalise on the growth opportunities. We pride ourselves on our status of one of the Best Places Workplaces in Ireland and we are delighted with the opportunity to now grow that team further as we bring forward our growth plans.”
Scurri was named among the world’s top 40 retail tech companies helping retailers rebuild from Covid in the second annual Discovery report.
