Automated Foodbank Delivery Reminders: Who Does What?

Nonprofit engagementMarketing automationFoodbank CommunicationsCommunications for nonprofitsAutomation

Foodbanks often struggle to manage communications related to their deliveries. Sending reminders based on delivery scheduling, determining if a client cannot receive delivery, and connecting those who cancel deliveries with rescheduling options are just a few examples of problems they would like to improve. Dealing with all these factors manually simply isn’t ideal, as it increases the chances of miscommunications, and takes up more time and resources on both sides. So how can foodbanks address these difficulties, and maximize efficiency when handling delivery schedules? 

SimplyCast presents the idea of a Food Bank Delivery Reminders Solution. This automated alternative provides engagement and automation tools to create a personalized communication system for foodbanks and their clients. Keeping everyone connected and on the same page regarding delivery times is the goal and is made much simpler with automation. Minimizing missed deliveries is a crucial part of this system to help avoid food waste and ensure the people who need them are receiving their orders. This system helps organize scheduling and delivery reminders without creating any additional manual work for volunteers, or clients. This solution is intended for use by foodbank administrators and their clients. 

How to Use the Automated Solution 

SimplyCast predicted the need for a better solution to preexisting delivery scheduling methods, which reduce the amount of confusion and missed deliveries. Our automated system makes use of API connectivity, the ability to send text message and phone-based reminders, and automation that simplifies rescheduling for clients. There are a variety of reasons that clients are unable to pick up their food, which is why foodbanks aim to offer delivery services to those in need. Making this whole process more accessible and simpler for everyone involved is Simplycast’s goal, and why we created this 4-step solution. 

Step 1- Administrator 

The first step is for the administrator to configure an integration so that when new delivery is scheduled, an API is triggered. This will allow a reminder to be automatically sent before the delivery date to the client that requested the order. 

Step 2- Clients 

Based on the preferences that they previously indicated, the client will receive either a text message or a phone call reminding them of their delivery. 

Step 3- Clients 

The client can choose to either cancel or confirm their delivery by replying to a code to the text message or dialing a certain number on their phone. Their response will enter the system and cause the appropriate action to be taken. 

Step 4- Clients 

If the client chooses to cancel their delivery, they will either be sent a text message with a link to reschedule, or if they opted for the phone call they will be connected to a representative.
