The story of how Shop Suki was founded is rooted in a tale of mankind’s ability to adapt and persevere in the face of adversity.
Shop Suki was born in March 2020 in response to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping the global, leaving the world in a state of lockdown.
The business, located in The Philippines, made it its mission to help as many immuno-compromised individuals and frontline workers as possible by delivering groceries and everyday essentials straight to their doorstep.
They did this by partnering with well-established retailer KCC, leveraging their pre-existing supply chain network across the island of Midanao.
Today, Shop Suki (‘Suki’ being an affectionate Filipino term for regular customer) is fast becoming the island’s premier shopping destination, offering more than 25,000 products from fresh fruits and vegetables to meat, groceries, pharmacy essentials, and more.
With the online store’s continued expansion came a need for a fast and reliable search and personalization solution. That’s where Findify comes in.
