TEMPE, Ariz., Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DUFL, the premium travel service that's changing the rules of business travel, today announced the launch of a new pack list function that allows users to group wardrobe items together to make virtual packing even easier. The company also rolled out a virtual 'DUFL Store' where users can add items like toiletries, phone chargers, healthy snacks and more to their DUFL closets when gearing up for a road trip. The new features will be released on iOS and Android with desktop availability coming soon.
"The pack list function works somewhat like a music playlist, allowing users to group wardrobe items under a heading of their choosing to make packing simpler- and even faster," says DUFL Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer, Andrea Graziani. "For example, a user could create a 'NYC' pack list for suits, shoes, etc., they'd wear in New York, a 'Workout' pack list for their exercise or sports clothes, or a 'Blue Suit' pack list for their favorite suit combination. We've received several requests from customers with color vision deficiencies to incorporate a tool such as this to assist with grouping shirts, pants, coats, etc. that match."
DUFL has grown rapidly as frequent travelers gravitate toward a service that eliminates the time spent laundering clothes, packing bags and lugging suitcases through airports, leaving those chores to DUFL instead. When preparing for a business trip, users select what to bring online or via the app, and DUFL packs the user's belongings in a special DUFL suitcase and transports it to the user's destination, retrieving the items and suitcase when the trip is over and inventorying, cleaning and storing items so that they're ready for the next trip.
In addition to clothes, shoes and other apparel, DUFL also stores and transports toiletries. Users asked the premium travel service for a way to get fresh razors, ibuprofen, toothpaste, phone chargers, shampoo and other items to add to their virtual closet. DUFL took customer's direct feedback and created the DUFL Store, which makes the items available, adds them to the user's DUFL closet and charges them to the user's card.
"We're also making healthy snacks available in the DUFL Store to make it a little easier to keep those resolutions about eating less junk food on the road," Graziani observes. "As a lifestyle service for people who travel a lot, DUFL is always looking for new ways to make life easier for road warriors, and when our customers make great suggestions about how we can add to the service, we do our best to make it happen. That's where the concept of pack lists and the DUFL Store originated — with our customers."
DUFL surveys its customer base frequently to get ideas for new features and also to gather data on how much time the service saves business travelers. A recent survey indicated that 84% of DUFL users report saving more than three hours per trip. That means frequent travelers who are on the road twice a month save more than five days per year by allowing DUFL to handle their road trip wardrobes. Learn more about DUFL at www.dufl.com.
