Bestway Wholesale has announced a partnership with Jisp – an award-winning shopping and payment app – to provide its franchise and symbol retailers with the opportunity to offer their customers home delivery and click & collect services.
Managing director Dawood Pervez said that there is a real need to support retail businesses with ‘best-in-class’ technology that is easy to use for both the retailer and the consumer – technology that each retailer may not be able to afford individually.
“There is huge opportunity for UK convenience retailers. Research undertaken in May shows that during the lockdown, over 26% of the UK population used c-stores for home delivery or click & collect. Furthermore, according to the ACS (Association of Convenience Stores), 57% of retailers have launched home delivery services in one form or another, since the pandemic took hold.
“Our partnership with Jisp is designed to empower our partners by giving them functionality that goes beyond the very basic order capture system and enables them to compete with the best in the business. It can be accessed through smart/mobile technology – which everyone is now familiar with using – making it very easy for consumers to use the app.”
Pervez added: “Retailers will be able to understand their customers better in terms of products and range and individual preferences, helping them to upsell and grow sales.”
Bestway Wholesale supplies over 50,000 retailers, covering company-owned stores, franchise stores, symbol group, retail club and independent retailers.
