New mobile app, ‘Hundred’ has launched its groundbreaking platform allowing users to discover and access personalised offers based on their preferences. Consolidating the current market and offering easier access of offers for end consumers.
With the pandemic’s impact on the spending power and attitude of consumers, it’s now more important than ever to find discounts and offers across all industries. Yet, with thousands of offers scattered across platforms, and brands, it’s easy for consumers to miss out on the best deals, and difficult for merchants to reach their customers.
Hundred, the new free-to-use mobile app, solves this dilemma allowing users to view and access different discounts and offers, personalised based on their bank cards and preferences. Providing a single platform for banks and merchants alike to market their products and services, but with the ease of use for consumers to find them.
The user-friendly interface has a simple two-step sign up, and allows users to search by industry, by location, as well as in a personalised view tailored to preferences relevant to them. The app can display seasonal offers, cashback deals and advertise high discounts, or time-sensitive offers knowing that it will reach the desired consumer. This allows banks and merchants to increase reach and potential spend from new customers, whilst users of the app get excellent deals at their fingertips in one centralised place.
The app’s launch comes at a perfect time when consumer income has been hit by the economic downturn. It helps users to optimise spending to take advantage of tactical offers they otherwise might not have been aware of. For example, by just adding your specific bank cards without any card numbers in the personalisation set up of the app, users can check offers they are eligible for, which, otherwise they might have missed. They can also see local discounts and offers based on distance and location. In addition to helping customers, this platform will help stimulate and boost local economies, as well as drive loyalty to local stores.
Speaking about the launch, Parag Gathani, Founder & CEO at Hundred said, “The last year has been challenging for everyone. More than the anxiety caused by the pandemic, managing our finances has been bigger stress and challenge for most of us. With so much uncertainty around us, saving money can help us feel a little less anxious in times like these. We launched Hundred with the objective to help users save money by maximizing the use of offers available to them through their digital devices, wherever they are, as every penny counts and by improving awareness and access to these offers at users fingertips, we are increasing their spending power. We forecast that the average user can save anything from AED 1,000 to AED 50,000 a year, or even more, depending on their purchasing power, by availing these offers smartly. We are excited at the overall impact we will have on users spending and saving habits by informing them of these offers which are relevant to them, at the time they need them, and everyone will benefit from this solution.”
