Problems & Insights

In the US, more than 89% of adults (BI Intelligence) are using the internet to speed up their lives through instant access of information and purchasing power. in 2017, the sales in e-commerce has grown to 800 billion dollars, and expected to grow up to 1 trillion dollars in 2020 (BI Intelligence). However, although there are benefits to this purchasing system, other problems have arisen. The rate of package theft and loss has increased annually while delivery officials are unsure as to what the optimal secure drop-off location would be when the inhabitants are not at home. 

Through research and concept prototyping, three insights were chosen as the focus to  address the needs of both delivery workers and recipients. Packages should be delivered close to the household, storage of delivery package(s) must be secure but only accessible by the delivery officials and the homeowners and a new system of user experience that can be managed by both homeowners and delivery officials needs to be established.

homebox App for officials

homebox App for users

The homebox app is a comfortable way to manage package delivery. The app shows the incoming delivery via tracking IDs that are given by the delivery services. When the packages are delivered safely inside the homebox, users receive a notification as the weight sensor inside the box identifies that the package is inside the homebox.

Delivery officials also use the homebox app through out their work process. Through the app, they can scan the tracking ID to open the homebox and manage all their deliveries.
