Event: Official Launch of QashGift

>> Monday, December 7, 2015

Gift-giving is certainly a common practice all around the world. With the advancement of technology, gift-giving has progressed from purchasing of gifts from departmental stores & shops to online shopping. One of the latest innovations in the market is QashGift.

"QashGift brilliantly combines the flexibility of cash and the thoughtfulness of a specially hand-picked gift with a few easy clicks on your mobile or computer. Brought to you by accomplished boutique web design and development outfit, Kemuncak Jaya Teknologi, QashGift is a unique digital solution that transforms the act of gift-buying into a wonderful shopping experience for everyone. With QashGift, gift buyers no longer find the process of selecting an appropriate gift a daunting one. In fact, they can rest assured that their recipients end up with the exact gift they desire. Naturally so, because their recipients pick out their own gift using their received QashGift account QR code! Meanwhile, recipients never have to receive another redundant gift that just sits in the closet, unused, again."

Here's how QashGift works:
1. Gift buyers sends a gift to anyone with just their email address and mobile number.
2. The gift will be directed to the recipient's QashGift account. If they do not have a QashGift account, they can create one instantly for free.
3. The recipients heads to a merchant’s store and provide their QashGift QR code.
4. The cashier scans the QashGift QR Code and will prompt the recipient to input the 6 digit verification pin received.
5. Upon approval, gift recipient will key in the amount of redemption and they will receive a digital receipt confirming their redemption upon approval.
6. Gift recipient selects gift desired from the merchant.

Among the participating merchants are EHSAN Living Style, Gloria Jeans, Circle K, Airwheel Malaysia, Garden of Eden Organic Skincare, My Eye Optometry, Raqtive, & OriginalOmin. There will be more participating merchants joining the bandwagon as well.

Itinerary for the launch
The launch was somewhat messy, I feel. Better coordination & event planning could have taken place. Yes, the booth space isn't very comfortable to fit everyone, but I reckon with better placement of counters, chairs & equipment + a more systematic process of how things should flow, people won't need to trample on each other & jostle in the crowd just to snap some photos of the event or listen to the speeches & introduction (there wasn't any portable microphone). Refreshments didn't come in plural form as stated in the program, but only Gloria Jeans coffee was served (at least from what I noticed before I left the event after everything was over).

What's in our goodie bag
The items in the goodie bag were much appreciated, but to receive the goodie bag itself felt like having to beg to be attended to as not all the organizing committee/staffs were well-trained to attend to the media's needs. I think my most unpleasant experience I had was during the gift redemption, where there wasn't a proper queue to get the gifts; people were rudely cutting queue & pushing me out of the queue & even when I was at the counter itself, there was a lack of staff to handle the gift redemption (when there were quite a number of staff standing around the booth). I've never felt so annoyed for a very long time. These were supposedly "highly educated" people from the media? Good manners certainly wasn't part of the education, I assume...hmm...

Some FAQs that you may be interested to know about QashGift:
1. Is QashGift something like a cash voucher, but online?
Yes, you're spot on!

2. Does the QashGift have any expiry date?
Yup, it's valid a month from the date you receive the QashGift.

3. If the gift-recipient receives RM20 worth of QashGift from say Gloria Jeans Coffee, does it mean that he/she can just select a gift within that amount only?
The gift-recipient can utilize the RM20 worth in a single transaction. Any additional cost will be borne by the gift-recipient & any unused amount from the QashGift will be forfeited.

'Tis the season of giving,
