Spree App selected as Apple ‘App of the Day’ - A first for SA ecommerce


Issued by Spree - Apr 26th 2018, 09:55

In a first for fashion ecommerce in South Africa, a team of editors at Apple has selected the Spree App as App of the Day. 

Being featured as one of the best apps available by the App store team is a proud achievement for an in-house team that constantly strives to provide their customers with the best experience possible.

App of the Day status is awarded by a team of editors from Apple who pick an iOS app and game to showcase daily.

Leading the way with innovative features such as the recently launched #SpreeGallery – a social shopping hub where customers share images of themselves wearing products bought on the site – Spree’s mobile app-first approach is clearly paying off.

Orders placed via the app have grown by 70% YOY (Jan – Mar ’17 vs Jan – Mar ’18), and in 2017 Spree won the CXA Digital Innovator Award for the first image search shopping feature in Africa.

Speaking about the App of the Day inclusion, Sven Schoof, Spree’s Head of Customer Experience, says, "We are thrilled to have been selected as Apple’s ‘App of the Day’ and even more proud that all our in-house teamwork has paid off by receiving this accolade. We’re always striving to optimise the shopping experience for our customers, and it’s great to see that Apple has recognised this."

The retail sector is under increasing pressure as consumers have shrinking disposable income in a strained economy. Maintaining share of wallet is critical. Relying solely on a push route to market strategy from manufacturers into retailers is not enough to get consumers buying products. A pull strategy needs to coexist with the push to drive brand consumption. Integrating these strategies requires intelligent and insightful decision-making. This, in turn, requires data generated through smart technology which provides line of sight across the value chain from manufacturer to distribution, retailer to the consumer.
