Foodland Super Market has launched a new mobile app for both iPhone and Android which is powered by mobile commerce provider DoubleBeam.
Foodland customers can load their Maika`i loyalty cards to their mobile devices, view their Maika`i point balances and track their progress toward earning My Rewards certificates for free product, grocery discount, or Hawaiian Miles.
Cheyne Manalo, Foodland’s Director of Web & Online Programs, commented, “Foodland has had a long tradition of finding innovative ways to deliver great value and service to our customers. Acknowledging that our customers are quickly adopting technology into their daily lives presented us with a great opportunity to further engage with them and build upon providing excellent customer service. In working with DoubleBeam we were able to quickly bring to market a unique mobile app that reflects who we are as a company and enhances our customers’ shopping experiences.”
DoubleBeam CEO Ted Tekippe added, “Mobile commerce offers retailers an incredible platform with which to interact with customers. The capabilities available can truly help improve customers’ lives, saving them time and money. Progressive retailers like Foodland understand that the use of technology can lead to better customer engagement, increased loyalty, lower operating costs, and improved differentiation from their competitors. We have been delighted to work with Foodland and look forward to adding even more features, functionality, and commerce to the platform in the future.”
