Montreal, Quebec (October 30, 2014) – Quebec-based digital entrepreneurs Eduardo Mandri and Jerome Guidollet announced today the national launch of Zweet, a new app designed to replace cumbersome grocery coupons.
Founders of Tuango.ca, Canada’s second-largest group-buying website, Mandri and Guidollet aim to revolutionize the way food manufacturers promote their products.
The annoyance of weekly flyers and grocery store line-ups while shoppers look for their 50-cent-off coupon (which they dutifully clipped and sorted) are all things of the past. Instead, shoppers can merely snap a shot of their receipt, upload to Zweet’s mobile app and see savings accumulate in their account within 24 hours!
“We are very excited to announce the official launch of Zweet,” says Zweet CEO Eduardo Mandri. “The feedback we have been receiving in our beta test from both consumers and companies has been phenomenal. It’s what keeps us motivated to continue bringing more and more amazing deals to Canadians.”
The app, available for both Apple and Android users, was quietly released in beta mode in April, 2014. After only a few weeks, it became the number one app in the Lifestyle section. In just six months and with practically no promotion, the app has already been installed by over 250,000 users across Canada. Zweet is also available in French – making it the only application of its kind available in Quebec – for truly national coverage. Companies such as Danone, Mondelēz, L’Oréal, Frito-Lay and Pfizer have already been featured on Zweet, with many more brands coming on board every day.
Consumers love Zweet because everything happens within the app. They simply go to their favourite store, open the app, see what’s on sale, buy the products and upload their receipt to get immediate cash back savings.
Manufacturers find Zweet a novel way to promote their brands giving them direct access to consumers. Redemption rates are extremely high and real-time information on consumer behaviour and demographics is literally at their fingertips to acquire.
Since its launch in June, 2010, Tuango has sold over three million coupons, representing more than $130 million dollars in consumer savings. The combined Tuango and Zweet properties now give Consumer Packaged Goods companies across Canada access to over 1.3 million Canadians.
