Currently, the number of branches is about 2,800 all over the country, and the monthly parcel delivery volume reaches 4 million parcels per month. The new services from SABUY helps Shipsmile to expand the number of franchises rapidly. As the online market has exponentially grown, there is a positive impact which causes parcel delivery business to grow accordingly.
The growing demand is the main reason that a lot of new brands have emerged this year. Each brand will look for its strategy to attract customers to use their services; for example, they offer higher discounts or decreasing margins.
To help standout in this field, Shipsmile offers e-payment services to add a new value chain and create a new revenue stream for franchisees. These services not only provide additional income for Shipsmile’s franchisees, but also facilitate people in rural provinces to easily access financial services such as deposit, withdrawal and transferring money.
Those financial services will be launched in September this year, including a customer relationship management program (CRM). This CRM program supported by SABUY Exchange will be a solid strategy to enhance loyalty for end-users and bring the ecosystem between Shipsmile and SABUY’s partners together. The program will allow end-users to collect and burn points for available services throughout the group. This strategy will differentiate Shipsmile from other competitors and even compete with convenience store chains.
