Im a huge fan of progress. By progress I mean when the world we live in adopt to technology to serve people better. And that is the new direction PUREGOLD is leading as they officially launch PUREGOLD MOBILE APP. Taking the grocery shopping experience to the next level, the app was designed by Puregold and Globe Telecom to adapt to consumer’s evolving needs and to keep pace with the technology in offering a better way to shop.
With PUREGOLD MOBILE, cart-less grocery shopping is now possible. Simply scan the barcode of the items that you want to purchase. When you’re done, await confirmation.
Of course I did try the app during the launch and it feels good to just scan items and not bringing it to my car basically because someone will do that for me!
Using the app allows you to skip the long lines in the cashier checkout. The assigned pickers and baggers will put together your basket, while you wait. Or you can come back to pick up at a later time. The app gives you the convenience to do other things instead of hauling around a cart and falling in line.
Another feature of the app is that you can reorder products from the Order History. This is ideal for all negosyantes or SMEs (Small-to-Medium Enterprise) who need to replenish stocks. You can also get real-time responses about order status and other grocery-related inquiries through the ASK SALLY in-app chat.
Luis Manzano also joined us that day and explain how SALLY made it more useful to customers using the app.
PUREGOLD MOBILE also offers flexible payment methods. You can choose to pay cash at the store or use your credit/debit card. GCASH option is also available.
The quest to find a solution to make our lives easier continues on a daily basis. When it comes to grocery shopping, Puregold believes that there’s always a better way. With PUREGOLD MOBILE app, everyone has now access to their very own shopping ally, their own “SALLY”.
Once you place your order, you will get a confirmation that your orders are being processed. Since that day I chose, pay in store, I need to settle it on the designated counter.
After Im done shopping, you will receive an SMS message that your groceries are ready for pickup. So I went to their Pick-up counter and a smiling face welcomes me to handover my grocery!
Present during the launch are Globe Business Development Manager Irene Dela Cruz, Puregold Senior Manager for Merchandising Jenny Jacintos, Globe Business Development Manager Roy Baviera, Globe Senior Account Manager Glenise Apolto, and Puregold Senior Marketing Manager
