IBM launches same-day delivery tool

To help its retail customers compete with Amazon, IBM said Wednesday its customers can integrate with a startup called Deliv for same-day delivery.

"A lot of our clients are really looking at how do we more effectively compete against Amazon," IBM's Errol Denger told Re/code. Providing customers with every possible delivery option is becoming more critical.

Deliv, which was founded in 2012, employs a network of part-time drivers who receive orders via smartphone and go collect orders at malls and individual brick-and-mortar stores before whisking them off to shoppers' homes.  Story
