Globe Business, GCash ink partnership with Shakey’s Philippines
Enables toll-free hotline #77777 and scan-to-pay feature
Shakey’s Philippines, one of the biggest and most iconic pizza store chains in the country, has tapped Globe Telecom and GCash to allow its customers to order and pay for their pizza, pasta, chicken, and other favorite food and drinks with just their mobile phones.
Together with Globe Business, the information and communication technology arm of Globe Telecom, Shakey’s Philippines has expanded its order and delivery operations through the hotline #77777, which will allow over 60 million Globe customers nationwide to order toll-free via their mobile phones and landlines.
With the growing demand for delivery services, this mobile solution ensures greater reach and easier access for customers, even those residing in hard-to-reach provincial areas. That is why a growing number of the country’s top fast food chains have partnered and are partnering with Globe Business to avail of the #Hashtag service.
At the same time, Shakey’s Philippines is also adopting GCash Scan-to-Pay service to pilot initially in 11 Shakey’s branches. The Scan-to-Pay feature provides a hassle-free payment system that comes with special promos and discounts for customers.
“Our partnership with Globe Telecom maximizes our opportunities to offer a full range of order and delivery services to our guests. Through Globe Business and GCash, both industry leaders for business solutions and e-finance services, Shakey’s Philippines is confident that this partnership will flourish to serve more guests with quality food and excellent delivery service,” says Vicente Gregorio, President and CEO of Shakey’s Pizza Asia Venture Inc.
Ernest Cu, Globe President and CEO, also expressed that the collaboration will primarily benefit the customers of Globe, GCash, and Shakey’s.
“Both the #Hashtag and GCash Scan-to-Pay feature give guests of Shakey’s Philippines the power to use their mobile phones as a tool to make transactions easier and more convenient. Globe continuously strives to improve and create solutions that bridge business gaps and provide companies with the technology that will allow them to empower and connect their customers,” Cu said.
With over 200 stores nationwide, Shakey’s Philippines intends to roll out GCash Scan-to-Pay within the year. The roll-out will pilot in the following Shakey’s branches: BGC Stopover, Market Market, Venice Grand Canal Mall, Loyola (Katipunan), Buendia, Valero, Glorietta, Park Square Makati, Makati Avenue, United Paranaque Subdivision (Shakey's WOW Center), and Magallanes.
With this new partnership with Shakey’s Philippines, every GCash Scan-to-Pay user is entitled to Shakey’s promos. GCash users will receive a 10% cashback capped at Php500 when they pay through the feature until March 31, 2018.
To use GCash Scan to Pay, customers just need to download the latest version of the GCash App, register for an account, and fund their GCash wallet at any of over 12,000 GCash partner outlets nationwide. Once funds are loaded in the GCash wallet, a customer can then swipe to the left or choose Pay QR, then Scan QR, and point the smartphone’s camera to the merchant’s QR code to scan. They can also pay bills and send money through the GCash App.
