ZAPPER CENTRALISES UK SALES TEAM
Mobile payment and loyalty specialist Zapper today announced a restructuring of its UK team. It is with deepest regret the move sees a number of field based staff leave the business, with some head office support and management roles also affected.
Zapper UK CEO Gerry Hooper commented, “Following a successful launch in the convenience retail sector in 2017, Zapper has seen encouraging adoption from many retailers and consumers nationwide. Looking ahead for 2018, it’s clear as a growing business looking to transform the market, we needed a more sustainable sales model. We therefore made the extremely difficult decision to reduce our field operations and would very much like to thank all those involved in creating a market leading digital loyalty and payment solution.”
Hooper also said, “With a more centralised sales function, we will now focus on delivering the platform via the many retail and technology partners we are currently working with. Customers and users will still be able to pay with Zapper in their local store and we will endeavour to provide the utmost support as we move forward.”
