A lot of customers gave us very good feedback on our promotional offer and we got some great customer and business engagement.

What’s New on Zephop – February 2017

We are making a few changes to the way Zephop works. This is all very exciting to us and the businesses who partner with us are all on board and looking forward to it as well.

It is quite an important change for us as we take our learnings from the first phase of our operations and try and build an even more successful product in phase 2.

What this means for you, dear readers, is that if you haven’t already, you should give us your phone number by adding it to your Zephop profile. This has many direct and indirect benefits, but the most important ones are that it allows:

  • You to get points quicker and more reliably
  • You to get real-time notifications

So do it, and if you have any questions, ask us by commenting on this blog post. We’re listening!

What’s New on Zephop – January 2017

Happy New Year, everyone. From us here at Zephop, we hope everyone had a chance to catch a break, eat some good food, maybe travel a little and catch up on some well-deserved sleep. We hope your 2017 has kicked off to a fantastic and enthused start.

New

The Zephop team has finished its reflections of the past year of work and we are hoping to make some changes as well as introduce a bunch of new things. Nothing like a startup to mix things up constantly, eh!

We will continue to do the things that have worked well for us in the past and we will keep you posted here about the things that change. We hope you continue to use Zephop and it integrates seamlessly with your daily life. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, we are listening! Let us know.

Until next month, let the good times roll!

What’s New on Zephop – December 2016

As part of a roundup of the year, the team at Zephop would like to thank all our dedicated readers for your lovely comments on this blog.
new-1

The Design, Content & Marketing function at Zephop exists to build a brand around the idea that we are passionate about. In our first full calendar year of operations as a team, we executed many plans that we had on our to-do list and ran with many initiatives that seemed appropriate to ‘kick off’ when a certain situation demanded.

From running coordinated, multi-location campaigns on social media to the birth of this blog to training interns on marketing initiatives, it feels like we have achieved a lot and yet we have only scratched the surface of the sea of possibilities. Coming up with our own designs for collateral and rehashing them regularly to ensure we remain ahead at the game has been a learning curve for us. As has constantly delivering the balance of cost, speed, quality. That too!

At Zephop, we have always believed that if you are not swamped with work and stretched to the limits, something is wrong. Each co-founder leads their stream with the same passion and obsession. And so far, it has been SO good!

So, for 2017, we will continue to do the things we have done well this year, and keep coming up with new ideas, initiatives, and hare-brained schemes. Because, if we don’t stir the pot, who will? Best wishes to all and their family and friends over the festive period. See you next year!

What’s New on Zephop – November 2016

This month, the resident blogger thought, is a great month for reflection. Not only is it that time of the year when the year itself is folding in, but it is also the month when Zephop turns 1.

new

And while something that we created has come along way and has taken on a life and an identity of its own, it has come with its fair share of challenges, as all great things do. As I think harder and harder about what it is about a startup culture that is most scary, the answer is very obvious – ‘change’.

At Zephop, we have done change really well. We have changed our founding team, people have come and gone, yes, but along with that we have changed plans, tactics, strategy, behaviours, and pace. We are 1 year old and a 100+ businesses strong because a bunch of people who had never worked together before came together and decided to match the pace of life with our own changes. That is what made us shine.

Most of the things we did, we had not planned for. But it was the strength of our core proposition and our collective belief that ‘this is IT’ that heped us galvanise when the troops were required. So when you are thinking of 2017, think of how much changed for the world this year, and prepare to deal with change on a personal level better.

This may have become a very reflective post, muses Resident Blogger, but hey, if you have got some Zephop points burning a hole in your virtual wallets, it is a great time of year to indulge in some cafe culture. So check out our Discover page!

Featured Review – Zinga

Hello lovers of food and great times! Today we wanted to tell you all about a great place to hang out in Vashi, called Zinga. This past week we have had a wonderful and hugely successful milestone here at Zephop. Over ₹ 10,00,000 worth of points have gone through the Zephop platform since our inception. We have been excited about this and there have been high-fives all round!

The ambience and facilities at Zinga hit home on many counts. There’s free WiFi, the decor is lovely and it is really easy to get to. The cuisine is mainly seafood and Malwani, but don’t let that distract you from the vegetarian dishes. All their courses are packed with beautiful flavours that hit the palate just right.

Why not go to our Discover page and check them out? To redeem some of those Zephop points, we recommend trying the Bombil fry or the Mutton Hirwa Masala Thali. We guarantee you will enjoy these.

If you haven’t been, you must head here soon because you will be hard pressed to find this level of customer service anywhere else. The staff here are super friendly and want to keep loyal customers coming back, which is where Zephop has become a part of their success story.

You must sign up to Zephop to join over a 1000 happy customers and redeem free rewards every time to go to a restaurant or cafe or even a boutique. What are you waiting for? Just go to zephop.com/signup

Do let us know if you tried any of our recommendations. What did you think? Would you go back with more of your friends and family? We’re always listening!

Featured Review – WTF What’s the Flavour

We’ve not featured a place for a while, so it was high time to start talking about a great new place in Nerul called WTF, who have decided to take customer engagement to the next level by partnering with us here at Zephop. WTF opened in January this year and has already become a hotspot in the area. Here’s why…

The location is great as they are located in close proximity to a lot of colleges – those in SIES or DY Patil will know what we’re on about. The ambience is lively and the vibe is great, especially with the quirky art deco wall. It serves as a backdrop to what we think will be great conversations. It is a great place to either go for a quick bite at lunch hour but at the same time it has enough choice on the menu to host a nice dinner as well. WTF is very pocket friendly and the quality of food as well the portion sizes are great. So when it is your turn to pick up the tab, you might want to take your friends here and maybe redeem some of those Zephop points that are burning a hole in your virtual pocket!

They do a lot of great cold drinks and milkshakes as well, and you can redeem some Zephop points on a scrumptious milkshake or iced tea. WTF are well known for their flavour packed burgers and you must also try the Chicken Sandwich (Grilled Cheese/Mayo). These get consistently good reviews. Sides are to die for, take a look at their chilli cheese fries for instance.

Everything that WTF is doing, we have thoroughly enjoyed. They are invested and excited about being a part of the Zephop story. So when you go there, try out some of our recommendations, redeem some rewards, show them some love, and don’t forget to have a fabulous time! Till next time, eat well!
