Suma Mobile Phone App Is Here

Submitted by on January 24, 2012 – 9:17 am3 Comments

These days people use their phones for a whole lot more than just making phone calls. So we thought it’s about time we took advantage of this opportunity to provide you with a FREE mobile phone app that provides a quick and straightforward service, tailored to meet the needs of both our wholesale customers and ethically-conscious consumers.

For ethical shoppers and fans of Suma products
Our new app will allow you to locate Suma stockists throughout the UK, so whether you’d like to find a London coffee shop that uses Suma coffee beans or are searching for Fairtrade peanut butter in Edinburgh, we’ll point you in the right direction. The app will use the GPS on your iPhone or Android mobile to locate your nearest Suma supplied outlets, and will also tell you about online ethical shopping sites just in case we have no stockists local to you.

As well as our range of Suma branded products we supply retailers, cafes and caterers with a broad range of other Fairtrade, environmentally friendly and organic goods. Our new app will allow you to search for outlets that stock any of these products, making it an indispensible tool for the discerning ethical shopper. And if the outlet doesn’t stock the Suma product you’re looking for, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they can get it in for you!

For retailers and other wholesale customers
Our new app will allow you to upload your business and website details for free, so that customers looking for quality products and services in your area can easily find you. With around half of all phones now purchased in the UK being smart phones, this is a great opportunity to attract new customers to your business.
Wholesale customers will also have access to full product search and fast-access mobile ordering capability, so placing your Suma order will soon be faster and simpler than ever!

How to get the app
The Suma app is available from Google Play and the App Store, In order to download this App you will need a Smart phone and a network connection. Connect to Google Play or the App Store, login and following the on screen instructions.

    If you like to check your shelves every week, to see that everything’s in order and currently fill in a SUMA order form as you go round the store, this app will save you lots of time. You’ll be able to scan the barcodes and fill a ‘shopping basket’ as you go round and, at the end, just click send! No computer needed, no fax machine, no need to sit at a phone for half an hour whilst we take your order verbally – BONUS!
