Shop N Save has become the first supermarket in Fiji to have its own app as it joined Vodafone Fiji’s local App Store – V-app Store.

The Shop N Save App is free to download exclusively from V-App store among many other exciting apps already available through Vodafone’s V-App store.

Vodafone general manager Sales, Rajnesh Prasad, welcomed Shop n Save on Vodafone’s V-App Store as they open a new business and shopping experience for its customers.

“The idea behind the launch of a local Appstore was to have localised apps for local situation that serve local needs,” he said.

“Apps like shopping, banking, cinema, news, sports, information, lifestyle, travel, education & fashion could all be customised for the Fijian market which will add greater value for all of us in Fiji context.”

Shop N Save chief executive, Kavishay Abhimannu, said: “We are delighted to be the first retail supermarket chain to step into the exciting world of connected shopping through mobile phones in our local market.

“As a first step, we offer our customers instant access to our specials as they are announced, updates regarding new product lines and the ability to contact us on phone or email directly from their mobile devices.”

Customers can also use this App to get information of interest such as upcoming products and exciting campaigns like the Shop N Save-Vodafone Txt N Win competition.

Mr Abhimannu said depending on market acceptance, they will consider adding richer functionality.

These would be things such as the ability to check the price of any product in their range, online shopping from mobile and more as part of continuing development of this product

Mr Prasad said App is the new buzz word in the business world.

“Since the launch of our V-App store, many businesses have approached Vodafone for their own app,” he said.

“We are already in process of developing their applications which would be available through the Vodafone App store shortly.”
