Tim Robinson


In 2014 Tim Robinson launched Doddle and by 2017 Doddle has become the world's leading Click and Collect business.

Doddle connects modern online shoppers with the best, most convenient locations to pick up and return purchases. For example, in the UK Doddle enables customers of EBay, Amazon and ASOS to collect their online purchases at Morrisons, Debenhams and B&Q and return unwanted items through the same stores.

Doddle’s technology platform is now being used by major multichannel retailers to power their own in-store click and collect propositions and is being deployed by major parcel carriers across the world to create local pick up solutions.

Tim is a non-executive director on the board of Stockholm based PE backed Hector Rail Group and is an Associate Director of London based corporate finance boutique Corbett Keeling.

How is technology affecting shopping habits?

Tim Robinson, CEO of Doddle, said that click and collect is a growing force in retail. He noted that while the ease of shopping online appeals to consumers, they now want to see that convenience reflected in how they receive the goods. Half said that they prefer the method because they save on shipping costs, but nearly as many said that they liked the speed and 28 per cent said it was more convenient. For retailers, there’s an incentive in that they only have to create software for the service once, and from there it saves money on infrastructure such as delivery vehicles.

Click-and-collect promises to link digital and physical

Finding the sweet spot within the intersection of digital and physical retail might be the most urgent priority for the retail industry. Retail fulfillment company Doddle believes it is developing a piece of the puzzle through its click-and-collect network model of retailers, carriers and global partners. That sweet spot, according to founder and CEO Tim Robinson, is where digital and physical-store retailers will get the biggest results with the least amount of effort.
