SINGAPORE, 27 February 2014: Singapore-based start-up Paywhere, whose e-Retail Management System Tackthis! provides an easy-to-maintain online, social media and mobile sales solution, officially announces two strategic partnerships to further strengthen and enhance their product offerings to consumers and businesses, both in Singapore and across the region. PayWhere is joining forces with Philippines innovations company Voyager Innovations, Inc. (Voyager) and an established Singapore online directory service. Through these partnerships, TackThis! will become more accessible to the market while providing better service and sales support to customers. The partnerships will allow even more aspiring retailers across South East Asia to leverage TackThis! for convenient, total quality commerce on prime online locations.
Tackthis! provides individually tailored solutions for seamless eCommerce – retailers can process sales and keep track of orders and inventory using one comprehensive platform, which is especially valuable for aspiring and fast-growing retailers who don’t have the time to build and customize an online storefront or the expertize to develop the back-end coding. Being a completely web-based solution, there is nothing to install – retailers simply embed the provided code onto their website or social network, and their online store is open for business.
Additionally, TackThis! allows users to embed their storefront on the prime online locations, which includes social networks like Facebook, your website, and mobile, and provides a range of social marketing tools so retailers can leverage their social contacts and networks to optimize sales. Customers can “like”, “share” or “pin” their favourite products to their own sites, while receiving rewards like loyalty credits, promo codes and special offers. The social element is particularly important given recent trends in social eCommerce – Gartner Research predicts that by 2015, companies will generate 50% of their web sales via their social presence and mobile applications, making social commerce an integral part of online retail. Retailers who do not leverage their social networks may be at a disadvantage when it comes to increasing exposure and attracting and retaining their customers.
Voyager, along with its Singapore-entity TakaTack, will leverage on their expansive market reach to complement the digital services and payments infrastructure already established in the Philippines. Mitch Padua, VP & Head, Product Development - Internet Services at Voyager, states “We are very excited to bring TackThis! to the local market, as it is a great product that combines the comprehensive and intuitive e-retail solution with social commerce capabilities supported by an extensive network and payment infrastructure.”
PayWhere’s CEO Dickson Gregory states “Our retail solution is able to cater to consumers’ ever-changing needs and empowers them with the right tools and flexibility. We are dedicated to providing the most comprehensive and effective e-retail solutions for our customers. Our partnerships are important to increase consumer accessibility and ultimately provide our customers with the best possible service.”
In the soft launch phase prior today’s official announcement, the partnerships have already connected thousands of aspiring retailers with their very own platform to manage their online business more effectively, and continue to transform the eCommerce landscape both in Singapore and throughout the region.
PayWhere is a technological innovations company that provides e-retail solutions for retailers. PayWhere’s proprietary product, Tackthis!, is a comprehensive platform facilitating easy selling across web, social media and mobile for aspiring e-retailers. PayWhere is in the midst of securing more local and international partnerships to take its products beyond the region.
