The fast fashion retailer re-launched its app, after building it in-house, on the Poq platform on November 1st, 2018, ahead of schedule and in time for the holiday trading period. By using the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform, Tobi is able to easily maintain and change content on its app in order to feed relevant and new content to its customers. The new app has proven itself successful in driving loyalty, building a connection with customers and ultimately revenue for the company.

Ken explains that they considered a variety of methods to improve their app:

“After a year of vetting a dozen different companies, primarily app developers and service providers, Tobi selected the mobile-native software-as-a-service (SaaS) app platform from Poq.”
