We’ve Been Shortlisted for the Charity Retail Awards

We’ve got some exciting news! The Air Ambulance Service has been shortlisted in the Charity Retail Awards for ‘Ecommerce Acceleration Award’ for our work with Shopiago. Working together since May 2021, they have helped us roll out a new online platform to manage the whole process from donation to delivery, resulting in increased revenue for our life saving charity.

The results seen in the last few months has elevated online sales of donated goods and reduced the enquiries from shop branches as they’re able to be self sufficient with this new process which also saves time which can then be dedicated to getting items sold. There has been an impressive 135% increase in the number of items that have sold since launching the platform which all goes towards helping to reach those in their hour of need.

“Shopiago has been a great vehicle to help us achieve the huge opportunity available for online sales,” said Hollie Arnold, e-commerce manager at The Air Ambulance Service. “The team did a brilliant job training our teams and volunteers, and explaining the benefits of online selling, and the results speak for themselves.”

The awards ceremony will be taking place on 9th September so we want to wish everyone has been shortlisted the best of luck and look forward to celebrating regardless of the winner.
