Lastest News: We are using what 3 words!

Here at Armaflo, we’re passionate about keeping our customers supplied and satisfied, regardless of their location in the UK. That’s why We are using what 3 words!  This will allow faster, more reliable deliveries. It’s all part of the improved Armaflo experience!

So – what does this mean for our customers?
  1. Our partnership with what3words removes the need for phone calls from lost delivery drivers and means Armaflo deliveries will arrive at the precise location faster and more efficiently. 
  2. Armaflo drivers will no longer have to ask customers for additional directions, optimising the delivery process and providing a smoother customer experience. 
How does what3words work?

An increasingly on-demand economy means that consumer expectations are rising, and businesses are under pressure to meet these demands while still protecting their margins. 

A common barrier prohibiting seamless deliveries in the UK is the challenge of communicating the precise delivery location. Street addresses often don’t guide drivers to the right entrance, and in rural areas, postcodes cover large areas posing a challenge to delivery drivers. 

what3words solves this problem. It’s an easy way to identify precise locations. Every 3-metre square has been given a unique combination of three words: a what3words address. 

For example, the what3words address for the collection point of our Armaflo HQ in Leeds is ///pumps.kite.laws. Using the free what3words app anyone can find the what3words address for the front door of their home, and share and navigate to that location easily and reliably.
