APAC CIO Outlook said the companies were selected based on “the innovative and user-friendly technological services they render to global enterprises and public sector entities.”
“eCommerce is a competitive space with significant growth potential for companies. RUSH eStore’s end-to-end ecommerce solution allows businesses to launch a successful online store in no time, and help them thrive in the marketplace,” says Annie Johnson, Managing Editor of APAC CIO Outlook.
RUSH offers digital innovations for businesses to manage their customer lifecycle. Initially launched as a loyalty solution, RUSH has powered successful rewards and retention programs of some of the nation’s biggest brands.
RUSH CEO Stephanie Kubota described the company as “Your Go-To-Ecommerce Partner” as it laid its foundation around digital transformation, helping over 100 leading brands maintain a competitive edge even during the pandemic.
To help empower small and medium enterprises (SMEs) boost their online presence, RUSH established an ecosystem allowing clients to equip themselves with a one-stop-shop experience through eStore.
The comprehensive platform helps end users, frontliners, and owners in the quick deployment of digital solutions. The eStore platform can be easily and seamlessly operationalized into a merchant’s business in a matter of days.
“RUSH remains steadfast in helping businesses, especially SMEs, by providing best-in-class technology and impactful synergies at a very fair price point,” Kubota said.
The eStore solution retails at P2,500 per month for its starter package called Spark, which gives entrepreneurs value for money by creating a website for them and allowing them to enjoy unlimited transactions, user accounts, branches and products, and the lowest transaction fees.
Aside from RUSH, other portfolio companies of 917Ventures are GCash, AdSpark, HealthNow, KonsultaMD, PureGo, m360, Inquiro, and KodeGo.
