Dole Asia Company Ltd., one of the region’s largest producers and marketers of fruits and vegetables, has partnered with Mobext Asia Pacific, through its Philippine office, to launch DOLEivery—a mobile app that lets you shop for fresh fruits at the comfort of your home.
DOLEivery marks the brand’s first push into mCommerce. Veronica Supetran, Regioal Marketing Executive of Dole Asia Company Ltd., said that the app’s main objective is to provide convenience to fruit shoppers: “Instead of visiting the grocery to purchase fresh produce and go through the process of picking, packing, and weighing, we’re allowing our consumers to let us do it for them. Now they can simply order pre-packed, high quality fruits through their mobile devices and have it delivered straight to their doorstep! In other words, we’re bringing the fruit shopping experience to their homes.”
Beyond convenience, the app also has a social thrust. Use DOLEivery to send your loved ones customized fruit baskets as the app lets you choose your own fruits. Personalize it by adding a greeting card for free, fit for any occasion.
Apart from fruits, the app also offers other Dole products such as organic brown rice, boiled peanuts, sweet tamarind, and even Yonanas—a machine which turns frozen fruit into a dessert that looks and tastes just like ice cream. App users can opt to pay right when the delivery is made, or via bank deposit.
Arthur Policarpio, Managing Director of Mobext Asia Pacific, said of the new project: “We’re happy that a brand such as Dole Asia is now exploring how mCommerce can benefit their business. The app puts Dole products straight into the hands of their customers, and it makes fruit shopping not only convenient but fun, too. They’re creating a buying experience that customers would want to repeat over and over again.”
Currently, DOLEivery is only available for download in Thailand while deliveries are limited within Bangkok. However, the brand is looking to launch the app in other countries across Asia.
DOLEivery is available on the Google Play Store. You can download the app here.view more - Creative
