International Gift Delivery Company Innovates Holiday Shopping Tools

08 Dec

GiftBasketsOverseas.com eases international delivery pains with a combination of dedication and brand new software

ARLINGTON, Mass.Dec. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — GiftBasketsOverseas.com (GBO), the experts in international gift delivery, has spent the past year rolling out update after update, all designed to make the process of sending gifts anywhere in the world easier. The most notable and useful updates include the company’s newest native language website launches for customers who prefer to order in Spanish, Portuguese, and even Russian. Additionally, GBO added Alipay to its array of payment methods, making it easier for even more international customers to be secure while paying for gifts. Now, during the company’s busiest time of the year, the company has unveiled its new Personal Gift Wizard and Corporate Gift Wizard. When asked what they do, Marketing Director NinaCarmen Monroe playfully responded, “Magic!”

She went on to elaborate that the Personal and Corporate Gift Wizards perform essentially the same functions, just a little differently to cater to people who tend to buy one gift versus companies that tend to coordinate dozens – or even hundreds – of gifts at once. The new tools allow customers to easily shop for only the gifts that are relevant to them. Customers can type in their countries of delivery, their budget, and other details, and the Wizard will provide gifts that meet their specifications. In just a few minutes, after filling in a few very simple drop down fields, customers will now be greeted with a screen filled with gifts that are exactly what they are looking for. This allows each shopper to customize their experience and make the checkout process even faster.

CEO Dmitriy Peregudov stated, “During the holidays, when time should be spent with your loved ones, I want to make sure that our company does everything it can to make shopping effortless. The most precious gift of all is time and we want you to enjoy yours!”

Of course, the team at GiftBasketsOverseas.com understands that there’s something to be said about getting to browse through all a country catalog has to offer on your own. So, those have gotten an update too. The servers have been beefed up and the GBO catalogs are getting new gifts added to them constantly, bringing its customers the biggest selection of high quality gifts around the world.

“We’ll never be done growing,” Mr. Peregudov elaborated. “There will always be an update to something that could make us better. And that’s what I want – to always bring our customers the best.”

But GiftBasketsOverseas.com refuses to let its technology surpass its human connection. While other companies are focusing hard on automated answering services and robotic chat programs, GBO has instead improved its customer service team and invested in employee training to make them as effective as possible when it comes to helping customers over the phone, through e-mail, on chat, in social media, through WhatsApp, and more 24/7. This is especially crucial now when customers have so many questions about how to make sure their holiday gifts arrive on time. GBO is looking forward to an especially busy winter season and hopes it can use customer feedback to create an even more impressive 2017.

I didn’t want that to be a barrier anymore.”

Mr. Peregudov has made it clear that the company has no plans to stop growing and innovating. “The more we can put technology to work for our customers without removing the comfort of our excellent customer service staff, the more we will.” He went on to boast that the site wasn’t the only thing that has changed.

GBO Celebrates 4th Year of Growth in International Gift Delivery

23 Aug

GiftBasketsOverseas.com is included on the Inc. 500|5000 list after constant site updates and hard work

ARLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 23, 2016 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — GiftBasketsOverseas.com, the experts in international gift delivery, announced today that it is honored to be included once again on the Inc. 500|5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America, ranking #3954 for 2016. After three years of growth at 74%, this is the 4th year in a row the global gift basket company has appeared on the list. Owner Dmitriy Peregudov said his business owes it all to its employees. “After all,” he explained, “ranking in a list that has included international sensations like Microsoft and Zappos takes a level of passion and devotion that can only come from truly believing in the company you work for.”

GiftBasketsOverseas.com’s business model has always included making everything about the company personal – from assigning dedicated gift specialists to corporate customers who order in bulk, to making sure individual questions and concerns are answered quickly, and even scaling back some types of automation to ensure that each order receives personalized attention – GBO is working to maintain a balance between speed and customer attention that many companies cannot match.

The company’s business model doesn’t only include attention to customers, but also attention to the development and well-being of its employees, which means a better overall experience for the customers too. The GBO team works 24/7, but each employee enjoys a flexible schedule, telecommuting, and opportunities for professional development.

In addition to its friendly work environment, the company has also been improving the ways gift orders are processed. With its website and software development team, GBO is paying special attention to streamlining the gift ordering and tracking process, while also being careful not to remove the personal attention each gift basket has always received.

GiftBasketsOverseas.com also takes pride in keeping its gift selection in 200+ country catalogs up-to-date, adding new selections and a wider variety regularly. Over the past few years, GBO has used customer feedback to improve its selection of Kosher gifts, gifts for Muslims, and American gifts for worldwide delivery.

Specializing in helping family, friends, and companies, keep their connections strong, GBO is looking forward to another year of growth, and (hopefully) its 5th year on Inc 500|5000’s list.

18 Aug

GiftBasketsOverseas.com completes its donation to NBCF and looks to future campaigns

ARLINGTON, Mass., Aug. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — GiftBasketsOverseas.com (GBO), the experts in international gift delivery, announced today that its Gifts Against Breast Cancer campaign ended strong and raised over $1,500.00 to donate to National Breast Care Foundation (NBCF). The campaign was a first for the gift company, but it is hoping to learn from, and expand, similar campaigns in the future.

GBO featured a number of the gifts on its website with a pink ribbon from Mother’s Day through the end of June, and pledged to donate 10% of the retail cost of each gift to NBCF. NBCF specializes in the battle against breast cancer, especially through prevention and education. It has founded and maintains programs that include the National Mammography Program (NMP) – which provides free diagnostic services; Beyond The Shock® (BTS) – NBCF’s global guide to facts about breast cancer on the web; and Early Detection Plan (EDP) – an interactive tool that organizes a patient’s breast health action plan.

GBO has achieved a lot of growth in the past couple of years, and has been looking for ways to give back that can impact the global community. “We’re just getting started with events and campaigns like this,” said Dmitriy Peregudov, CEO. “But we know that we’re only going to get better, and in the future be able to donate even more to such important causes.”

When asked if another campaign with NBCF was in the works, a representative from the company’s Marketing and Relations Team responded, “We’ve enjoyed working with NBCF very much; they are incredibly positive and easy to work with; we have tons of reassurance that they’re doing great work with the funds, so we definitely want to try for something again in the future. That having been said, we may not only focus on work with NBCF, we’re also keeping our eyes open for other great non-profit organizations who are having an impact on global issues. It’s a very exciting time to be giving back.”

No matter what charitable campaigns GBO is organizing however, the company assures its customers that it will not forget about its most important priorities: providing exceptional delivery services around the world, along with the top-notch, 24 hour service that every customer deserves.
