DiscountVouchers.co.uk, the money-saving website that helps shoppers save money at more than 800 top stores, has announced its move into the UK daily deals space through a new alliance with NimbleCommerce.
The UK retail deals market is already awash with US suppliers and the new partnership sees DiscountVouchers.co.uk set to make its own inroads into the space. By working with NimbleCommerce and its regional retail partners, DiscountVouchers.co.uk will be able to offer its users and subscribers daily deals which are tailored to their location and interests. The deals will be available to view at Deals.DiscountVouchers.co.uk.
The new DiscountVouchers.co.uk daily deals team has been established to grow the company’s position as the fastest-growing voucher codes website in the UK. The new team will be headed up by CEO Gerard Doyle, who will seek to leverage the site’s 150,000 a day unique visitors and database in excess of 5 million registered subscribers.
Gerard Doyle said: “This new move into the group buying space makes all the sense in the world, since our DiscountVouchers.co.uk voucher codes audience and daily deals users are so similar. We are well set up to take the fight to the established US daily deals providers who have gained themselves footholds in the UK market,” says Gerard.
The new DiscountVouchers.co.uk daily deals software platform has been built by e-commerce and daily deals specialists NimbleCommerce, a supplier of transactional tools which leverage mobile, search and social networks.
Gerard Doyle continued, “Many US group buying companies now have traction in the UK and there are also technology resellers present too. By getting together with NimbleCommerce we will be able to expand our offering beyond our current 5 million voucher code users and into the burgeoning group deals space.”
NimbleCommerce European Sales Director Peter Casey comments: “This is a really progressive step taken by DiscountVouchers.co.uk and we are pleased to be working with such a fast-growing voucher codes company. Our solutions allow retailers and consumers both to benefit, with merchants enjoying the in-built revenue protection we offer.”
“With DiscountVouchers.co.uk already having a database of over 5 million on which to build, we are confident that our technologies will empower them to keep growing and make fast inroads into the daily deals space in the UK,” Peter went on.
Gerard concluded, “We are well set to make this move into the group buying market in the UK, with us already having so many subscribers, so much data, so many partnerships and the know-how of how to grow a business rapidly”.
DiscountVouchers.co.uk will continue expanding in the UK with new regional growth plans in place for the coming three months. The first three cities targeted will be Brighton, Birmingham and Newcastle.
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.
