GREENWICH - A new tech startup based in Greenwich pairs a smartphone app with same-day delivery service to help busy businesses and consumers streamline their errands.

Point Pickup is a same-day delivery app that specializes in local pickups and drop-offs for businesses and consumers, according to its founder, Tom Fiorita.

Fiorita says people use the app for three main functions. A business can schedule a delivery to another business. A local shop can use Point Pickup to deliver an item to a customer. And a consumer can schedule a delivery to another consumer. 

Products delivered can range from items like a pair of shoes to catering orders.

Drivers working for Point Pickup choose their own hours and the regions where they're willing to go. The app is offered currently in Fairfield and Westchester counties.

Fiorita says he hopes to expand to 20 markets within the next two years.
