Saudi Post launches new e-Mall
The portal will cater to all shopping needs for local consumers in the Kingdom
Saudi Post has launched a new e-shopping portal in Saudi. The company says it is the largest and most comprehensive virtual e-Mall developed and designed by LINK Development.
"This innovative portal is not only a new means of revenue for us, but also for the vendors involved. With this new service, vendors save on rent, maintenance, and enable a 24-hour global selling operation," said Dr Mohammed Banatan, CEO of Saudi Post.
The portal is designed to enable multiple vendors and stores in the KSA with business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce opportunities to access their customers in the virtual world.
Saudi Post in collaboration with LINK Development has been working on building more competitive and improved services for its clients across the Kingdom over the last few years.
The new bi-lingual portal with a built in billing system, which is designed to allow customers to track their e-Mall payments, allows payments via credit cards and cash using SADAD (the government payment system).
"At such an economically strenuous time, this e-shopping portal brings convenience to those looking for a one-stop-shop from the comfort of their home. Especially with Saudi Arabia submerging in the new global online shopping trend, we believed it was the time to introduce this concept to the local market," said Dr Banatan.
The e-Mall services small, medium and large businesses, and enables them to track purchases to better understand their client base and tailor services to those needs, according to the company.
"LINK Development has ensured its team of experts has developed a distinctive portal to enhance the B2B and B2C solutions in KSA, enabling Saudi Post to be the pioneer government entity in the region to use e-Commerce Solutions," said Irini Rafaat, Managing Director of LINK Development. "Our extensive experience in e-Commerce Portal development has usability and information architecture with capabilities such as, User Experience (UX) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM,) provides e-mall with a highly competitive edge."
LINK Development is a solutions partner for government entities in both Egypt and the GCC.
