TAKEALOT.com has taken another step towards customer convenience by launching their iPhone and Android shopping apps in addition to the Blackberry 10 app launched earlier this year. With Africa’s internet users primarily using mobile devices, the apps aim to deliver an enhanced experience for customers, allowing them instant access to the world of retail via their mobile device, regardless of time or location.
â€œWeâ€™re not joking when we say itâ€™s a mall in your pocket. The apps are designed to allow the user to access the world of online shopping without ever having to use a laptop or desktop computer.â€ Says Kim Reid, CEO.
Customers can start shopping instantaneously. They can register, browse, search and buy goodies with ease using the unique touch-optimized capabilities of iPhone, Android and Blackberry 10 smartphones. Existing TakeAlot customers can hit the ground running by just entering their login details.
A nifty feature is the inclusion of a barcode scanner allowing anyone to window shop in bricks and mortar stores and price compare on TAKEALOT.com.
â€œYou can now buy anything from Sports, Home and Kitchen, Baby and Toddler, Pet and Electronics goods to DVDâ€™s, Books and Games AND get them delivered to your home, all from your mobile phoneâ€ says Reid.
With Africa rapidly becoming a mobile-driven continent, the new TAKEALOT.com mobile shopping apps are set to provide the ultimate solution to satisfy the SA consumerâ€™s growing demand for a simple, safe and more convenient way to shop.
