In a bid to meet the changing socio-economic landscape, PPC has partnered with SnapnSave to provide cash back through an innovative digital solution that leverages financial technology. PPC in partnership with SnapnSave has developed a convenient and secure way to provide cash back to consumers with any purchase of PPC cement across the country.

Njombo Lekula, Managing Director at PPC RSA explains, “PPC SUREREWARDS represents a breakthrough in mindset and technology! A first in the construction industry, we have a unique opportunity to leverage existing consumer experience and knowledge around reward programmes to fulfil the nation’s homeownership and building dreams.”

In recognition of the tough economic times that have hindered building ambitions, the business has decided to give South Africans sustainable value that encourages them to fulfil their dreams. With continued usage of loyalty programs in 2018/19 indicating that 75% of South Africans who are economically active, the Truth & BrandMapp Loyalty Whitepaper has given PPC confidence in the country’s ability to apply this knowledge to the construction sector, allowing the business to bring its PPC SUREREWARDS into the market.

“The offering, which is initiated from the existing SnapnSave infrastructure, shapes the future of consumer delivery and benefits within South Africa’s built environment” continues Lekula. “We have evolved our consumer engagement efforts to provide information, tools, and solutions that make the purchase of a single bag of PPC Cement more rewarding-giving us the opportunity to empower communities to experience a better quality of life while adding sustainable value”.

To capture all this potential, PPC has gathered the support of hardware retail partners and, sales teams to ensure the PPC SUREREWARDS go where they are needed most, into the pockets of ordinary South Africans. This committed and concerted effort has seen the business relook how it adopts technology, runs its operations and implements its route to market strategy.

“As South Africa’s fastest-growing shopping community, we are humbled to have the opportunity to have PPC use our platform to allow South Africans to build their dreams. With businesses using a diversified range of Point of Sale (POS) devices or e-store solutions, PPC SUREREWARDS on SnapnSave earns real cash back when South Africans purchase PPC Cement,” says Mark Bradshaw, CEO at SnapnSave.
