Vancouver has been a buzz lately (pun definitely intended) now that the Siply App has launched. What is the Siply app you may ask? Well that's a silly question, you should already know about it! But for those that don't I guess I'll take the time to fill you in.
Siply is a new coffee shop curation app to save users time and money, all while supporting small businesses. Simply offers a robust repertoire of 47 cafes located in Vancouver, North Vancouver, Richmond, Coquitlam, New West, and Surrey, providing coffee and tea aficionados with special offers, an interactive map, detailed menus, users reviews, and the ability to purchase through the app. Users save an average of $1 per drink when they order and pay through Siply. The coffee shops on the app include recognizable names such as Nemesis Coffee, Pallet Coffee, Prado, Rocanini, Timbertain and Kafka's, with more cafes being added monthly.
"I started spending countless hours in a coffee shops, which led to conversations with cafe owners about how to promote the local coffee scene. That's how Vancouver Coffee Snob was born, to help everyone drink better coffee. The natural next step was to find a solution to drive more business their way, and that's where Siply comes in", said Tom Fitzgerald, the CEO and founder of Siply.
White it started with a mission to save time and money, the project took on more meaning this year. Like many industries, the coffee industry has experienced devastating impacts as a result of the pandemic. Fitzgerald hopes that Siply will give consumers the tools they need to support small businesses, while still saving money.
"We've really benefited from our partnership with Siply," says Alyssa Rugg, operations manager at Pallet Coffee Roasters. "We recently collaborated with Siply on a campaign that generated two times more foot traffic that we normally see during that time period. The increase in visibility and opportunity to engage with new customers is critical during such a challenging year."
