Hermes U.K. to bring parcels to life
Hermes UK has launched Hermes Play, which allows senders to pre-record a personal message which is then uploaded via the Hermes Send app.
The new technology was created within Hermes’ Innovation Lab and is aimed at bringing people together by enabling the sender of a parcel to connect with its recipient through a personal video message.
A 2D barcode (similar to a QR code) is then created which is added to the parcel label. The parcel recipient is then invited to scan the code and watch the video message on their phone or tablet.
Martijn de Lange, CEO at Hermes UK, said: “At Hermes this year our mission is to make parcels personal again and our digital teams have been working hard to create new and exciting initiatives. Hermes Play is a fantastic service that can be used by consumers to send messages to family and friends or by businesses for a more commercially focussed approach. It’s designed to create a personal connection and make the experience of sending and receiving a parcel just that little bit more special”
