Ayannah Named As One of Smart’s Best Performing Business Partners
/ June 14, 2013
Recognized last March 2013 for successfully bringing Smart’s products and services closer to the telco’s growing subscriber base through new and innovative means, Ayannah is honored to be named as one of Smart’s best performing business partners.
Manila, Philippines: Ayannah, the leading provider of digital commerce, payment and media services for online and mobile communities in emerging markets, was recently recognized by Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) as a key business partner and a major contributor to Smart’s continuing success. Says Orlando B. Vea, Smart’s chief wireless advisor, “They are an integral part of Smart’s ability to innovate and grow and it is with their help that we are able to further reach and serve our more than 50 million subscribers.”
Founder and CEO of Ayannah Miguel Perez cites the privileges of being one of Smart’s partners: “Through the partnership, Ayannah can look forward to a continued growth trajectory this year.” Perez explains, “Smart is looking for partners who can—aside from traditional loading via phone-to-phone, develop multi-faceted selling channels—and who share its vision of touching and improving the lives of people, enabling them to live more. With Ayannah’s new and innovative mobile commerce and online payment services, we help enrich the lives of many Filipinos.”
Perez attributes Ayannah’s rapid rise as one of Smart’s best performing non-traditional distributors to the successful deployment of Sendah Direct, Ayannah’s cloud-based electronic retailing platform. Since it was launched in 2011, Sendah Direct is now deployed in over 7,000 retail outlets in the Philippines and around the world. Perez further said “Our partners include the largest pawnshop chains in the country – M Lhuillier and Tambunting as well as leading drugstore chain South Star. They have adopted Sendah Direct because of the ease of provisioning and operations. We continue to add to the roster of distributors and retailers who have chosen Sendah Direct as the better way to sell load and other electronic equivalents of products and services. We are launching more exciting features, products and services in the next few weeks.”
