Leading Retailer Partners With QuickContractors.com to Interface and Manage Supply Chain and Product Installations

QuickContractors.com, one of North America's fastest growing retail skilled trades aggregators announces that it has partnered with Canadian Tire Corporation Ltd. to develop a SaaS AI platform that combines real-time data and AI to optimize last-mile delivery and product installations for large North American retailers.

With the assistance of Canada's supercluster Scale Ai, the company is developing an intelligent platform with robust optimization capabilities that will synthesize existing and real-time data inputs, including inventory availability, delivery carrier details, delivery locations, GPS, contractor skill levels and more, to improve the capacity planning, scheduling and logistics of over 5000+ national field technicians and delivery agents.

“This project will enable Quick Contractors to provide a cutting-edge customer experience, minimize excess labor capacity and harmonize the scheduling of heterogeneous resources to its retail partners, enabling significant AI-powered efficiency gains in last-mile supply chain management,” mentions Trevor Bouchard, CEO. "There currently is no retail end-to-end supply chain solution that seamlessly tracks last mile logistics with product installations in the field. We are about to change that with our UDS [Unified Delivery Service] model" he said.
