Online voucher specialists take on new partner to jump into UK’s thriving group buys sector

25 NOVEMBER 2011 – DiscountVouchers.co.uk, the leading money-saving website, has partnered up with e-commerce experts NimbleCommerce to enter the thriving UK daily deals market.

There are already around 200 companies offering online discount vouchers in the U, many of which are based in the USA. DiscountVouchers.co.uk is banking on its local experience in the voucher industry to give it the edge over rivals in daily deals. Its members will soon begin receiving special offers based on their interests and where they live. The current deals are at Deals.DiscountVouchers.co.uk.

Gerard Doyle, CEO of DiscountVouchers.co.uk, will take charge of the new venture. With over 150,000 visitors browsing his website every day, DiscountVouchers.co.uk is one of the internet’s top sites for retail deals. Doyle believes that with a client base of 5 million to work with, his company has a solid advantage in the growing British daily deals sector.

Talking about the new project, Gerard Doyle says: “We have millions of customers who already visit our website in search of a deal or a discount. It’s only logical that we expand this service platform into the booming realm of group buys. The consumers are there. We just need to feed them the deals.”

DiscountVouchers.co.uk asked international e-commerce experts NimbleCommerce to develop the software for their new service. They have years of experience using mobile and search technology along with social networking sites to open up avenues of transaction for potential consumers.

Doyle continues: “NimbleCommerce fits perfectly with our game plan to expand heavily into group buys. They have a solid background with the technology, logistics and personnel in this particular facet of e-commerce. Together with DV’s local knowledge, our huge customer base and experience in the voucher sector I am very confident that we can rise to the top of this growing area of online buying.”

“The US has a more developed group buy sector than the UK. American consumers have many options for daily deals thanks to the proliferation of US firms that provide the technology and the service platforms. This is where NimbleCommerce becomes a valuable asset. They have loads of experience with the global markets and we have the local connections. Together, we can enter the group buy market in the UK without needing to make so much guesswork,” Doyle adds.

Peter Casey, NimbleCommerce European Sales Director, comments: “DiscountVouchers.co.uk has another clever plan to keep everyone happy. Under our new partnership, the retailers who work with us will get a built-in guarantee of payment. If a customer does not appear to claim a daily deal they buy, the merchant involved will still get their payment. Few others in this industry offer such protection.”

“The daily deals field in Britain is revving up fast, but I think DiscountVouchers has an excellent chance of garnering one of the top membership bases. It is well-known for reliable customer service and has over 5 million existing clients to work with. I’d say this is a huge advantage over other newcomers,” adds Casey.

For the next three months, DiscountVouchers.co.uk will start their daily deals services in a handful or regions. The first cities to get the service are Brighton, Newcastle and Birmingham.

Since DiscountVouchers.co.uk was launched in 2009 the site has helped customers save more than £3.8 million and has generated revenues in excess of £25 million in the 12 months to August 2011. At present, the site features more than 500 new offers every day from over 3000 retailers including Marks&Spencer, House of Fraser, Lastminute.com and Sainsbury’s.
