Apps have taken over the world, and quite literally so. With most daily problems being solved only a click away, apps have deeply penetrated our day to day lives. It’s all about being quick and convenient. In this post I will share a quick story about how an app saved my day.
On a recent visit to London I wanted to buy a bread maker (for my wife). With meetings and other commitments, I was hard pressed for time so I quickly placed an order on Amazon but they sent a message that it will be delayed (because of some supplier issue I guess) so I had to cancel my order. Then I started looking offline. I checked various stores, including Harrods but to no avail. Like a bolt of lightening, it occurred to me that my wife had mentioned an app called Henchman Concierge Service (London). I immediately downloaded it and placed the order. Believe it or not, I received the item in less than 30 minutes! Everyone’s happy.
This is such a simple, efficient and user friendly app. Whatever you want, they get it for you and you just have to pay 10% as their fees. The profile creation was also easy breezy. All I did was put my credit card number and activate the account. For verification they asked me for a unique I.D. with a selfie. That’s it. What’s more is that its service is top end. Apps like these create a new benchmark everyday. And why not? It only grows the industry and betters people’s life.
In a country like Nigeria, I believe such apps have huge potential. There are so many gaps that are screaming to be filled – both in the industry as well as consumer aspect. Our Diamond Bank app was thus created to make life of all our customers simpler and convenient. It would be amazing to have such concierge service in Nigeria someday.
