Apps that provide convenient services have become part and parcel of modern life. From sharing rides to booking a plumber to fix a leaky faucet, or even finding a date, these demand-driven tech tools make urban living less stressful for upwardly-mobile professionals who then become free to focus on more important aspects of home life and career.
Now, there’s an app that goes a step further by combining certain services to act as a personal concierge. honestbee specializes in tasks that a personal helper would do, such as picking up laundry, doing the groceries, or bringing you hot meals straight from your favorite restaurant.
honestbee is an all-in-one, on-demand lifestyle platform that saves you time by handling your chores for you, so you have time for what matters. It has already started operating successfully in key Asian cities Singapore, Taipei, Hong Kong, Jakarta, Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, Niseko and Tokyo and has now started offering its grocery service in Metro Manila.
Their trained grocery concierge handpicks the freshest produce at in-store prices, while looking out for expiration dates and suggesting the most suitable substitutes. The service on the app is customer-centric, and there is room to leave specific instructions for the items to be purchased.
Deliveries, which are marked for two hours, are from 10am – 8pm daily, subject to store operating hours, including weekends and public holidays. There is a P150 concierge or shopper fee. Free delivery is offered for a minimum spend of ₱1,500. Otherwise, a delivery fee of ₱99 applies.
Unlike grocery store delivery services which transport items from only one shop or inventory, honestbee does not stockpile goods in a warehouse. Instead, it delivers the items listed on the app from their chosen partner merchants such as Robinsons Supermarket, Solo Meat Group, Fresh Options Meat Shop, G-stuff, Foodsource, AWC and Boozy PH. Customers can even shop from multiple stores in one order and still get their items delivered in two hours.
honestbee also launched its additional concierge services for laundry pick-up and delivery (including dry-cleaning) and soon set to have delivery from its premium partner restaurants.
The app is available for free download on the Apple or Google Play Store. To start using it, simply register and click on the confirmation email, tag location, pick out the items or services they need, and wait for the delivery within two hours. The app can be used on iPhone, iPad, Android phones and tablets, over mobile or Wi-Fi connections. Desktop is also available for Groceries.
honestbee offers a unique integrated service, as it houses your favorite premium brands and ensures top-of-the-line services to give city dwellers more time to ‘Bee’. The time saved from doing chores you more time to be a spouse, a parent, or a friend, as the easy-to-use app gives convenience at a click, with safe, reliable, and convenient grocery, delivery and laundry services through your smartphone.
