A flurry of jobs for delivery agents emerged with a digital shift in India’s ecosystem. Time became of utmost importance since decisions to spend time doing activities depended on- “Do we really need to go out or can we order it?”

Food-delivery apps have been more popular than other home delivery apps since cooking is a time-consuming activity and these apps make food affordable. An expected rise in the online user base reveals that the online food delivery market will hit $8 billion by 2022, as per a report by Google and Boston Consulting Group. 

While the food delivery market thrives, other home delivery applications are not far behind. Enjoyable activities such as shopping is provided for by e-commerce apps that offer a variety of products. Not-so-enjoyable activities such as grocery or medicine shopping are also looked after by these apps. In fact, there is an app that delivers anything and everything to you from whichever place you want! This article explores these apps in detail. 

These 6 Home-Delivery Apps Help Get Work Done Faster:

Anything and Everything: Dunzo

Most imagine Dunzo to be a cover-up for firms that don’t have delivery services, but it is more than that. Dunzo gets you anything and everything. Forgot your glasses at a friend’s place? Dunzo it. Your general store doesn’t deliver just a toothbrush? Dunzo it. Need to send a gift to your friend? Dunzo it. 

That’s how broad the services of Dunzo reach making it very easy for people to bring home anything they want by sitting at home. The tapped into solving the need of “getting things done”.

Backed by Google, Dunzo recently raised funds valued at Rs. 78 crores from Alteria Capital that lets them expand to more cities. Presently, Dunzo is available in Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Pune, Chennai, Mumbai, and Hyderabad.


Salon Services: UrbanCompany

There is nothing that women would love more than to have salon services done at home. While physical spaces have been serving their needs well enough, the comfort of getting pampered in your house is different. 

UrbanCompany, formerly known as UrbanClap, provides home repairs, beauty, and maintenance services. The company has recently expanded to Australia, UAE, and Singapore and has decided to focus primarily on beauty and home services. 


Groceries: BigBasket

Endorsed by Shahrukh Khan, BigBasket puts to rest the reluctance to go grocery shopping on a weekend. Since its inception in 2011, it has become one of the leading grocery delivery company in India. At the moment, BigBasket is available in Bengaluru and Mumbai. The company turned a unicorn in May 2019. 

BigBasket provides a variety of groceries that a customer can select and have delivered at their doorstep.

Food Delivery: Swiggy, Zomato, (Amazon?)

The online food delivery space in India has 2 major players at the moment after UberEats being sold to Zomato. However, Amazon’s announcement of launching delivery services in Bengaluru may change this dynamic. Swiggy and Zomato operate in cut-throat competition that is advantageous for its customers since they get access to more food joints. 

This wave of online delivery has also birthed cloud kitchens that make food affordable since they save on infrastructure costs. 

Swiggy and Zomato have their own niche customers and own offers that differentiate them from each other. Based on customer’s preferences, both these apps will bring you food at your doorstep from almost any restaurant you wish to eat from. 



Shopping: Myntra

Ecommerce was one of the first settlers in the online economy and is continuing to perform exceedingly well. With online shopping applications sprouting everywhere, Flipkart owned Myntra brings a lot of options for its customers in terms of clothing, beauty, home products, and offers. 

Even though shopping is an enjoyable activity, why are people ordering online? The online marketplace lets you scan through clothes by just swiping, lets you compare and well, allows you to make purchases without moving. 


Gifts and Flowers: Ferns and Petals

If there is anything that romanticizes long-distance relationships well, it is ferns and petals. As the world saw better communication capabilities with people who did not live close by or were in a far off country, the idea of gifting and sending flowers was not far fetched. 

With Ferns and Petals, you can send gifts or flowers based on special occasions to your loved ones even if they are in different cities. There is no longer a need to go out, purchase a gift, courier it and time it correctly to reach the person on time.

Summing Up… 

Having these apps on your phone definitely let you in on the comfort of staying home and also give you more time to indulge in activities of your liking. The definitive shift to delivery apps is felt by the restaurants, stores and services companies as well. A popular tea franchise created a special space for delivery agents in its new design. This only makes the prediction of India moving to an app-based ecosystem entirely more pronounced.
