Poq appoints SkillNet as a Global Solutions Partner

New York, 15 April 2021 – Cloud-based mobile app commerce platform provider, Poq, today announces an exciting new partnership with leading global consulting services and retail systems integrator, SkillNet Solutions, Inc.

Poq is expanding its global presence with the formal appointment of “makers of modern commerce,” SkillNet, as a new Global Solutions Partner to take its innovative native mobile platform to market and enable retailers to deliver digital flagship appcommerce wherever their customers are.

Poq is a Software-as-a-Service platform that empowers over 50 global retailers and brands to create fully customized native mobile apps that can curate unique and relevant customer experiences. The Poq platform enhances mobile shopping journeys, both online and in-store with immersive content and features that increase average sales value and cadence, and deepen customer engagement and loyalty.

SkillNet has partnered with retailers across 53 countries to deliver exceptional customer experience and growth. The company’s award-winning solutions have enabled global retail brands across multiple sectors, including Apparel, Grocery and Health & Beauty, to enhance the online and in-store experiences of their customers and deliver the promise of modern commerce. SkillNet combines retail application design and full stack engineering capability for web, mobile and cloud, with experience of industry-leading technology platforms, such as Oracle, SAP, AWS and Salesforce. 

SkillNet will provide full service partner capabilities to launch and implement Poq-powered mobile apps. Joint clients will be able to rapidly and effectively meet and exceed customer demands, driven by 40% CAGR (2017-2021F) in time spent shopping on mobile at home, according to App Annie.

The partnership will enable both companies to meet growing demand for native apps as part of a broader digital-first strategy that can capitalize on the pandemic-fuelled shift to mobile. In fact, Poq found mobile shopping app transaction volumes increased 129% year-on-year over Cyber Weekend last year.

The depth expertise in the retail sector that SkillNet brings to Poq presents a mutual opportunity to scale and meet rapidly growing demand.
