Holiday consumer promotion kicks off relationship
Sigue Corporation (“Sigue”), a global money transfer leader, announced on December 9, 2014 that it has entered into a strategic distribution partnership with LBC Express, Inc., (“LBC”) one of the Philippines’ largest payment and logistics supply chain company. This collaboration allows consumers of both companies to send money to virtually anywhere around the world.
LBC’s money transfer service covers countries with large Filipino populations, including the United States, Canada, Hong Kong and Saudi Arabia. Sigue, a leading money transfer service based in the United States, now serves over 130 countries and has over 75,000 payout partners worldwide. Indeed, this partnership has now given both companies access to most parts of the globe. And therefore, customers now have more options to send money with Sigue and LBC to their families and loved ones.
“While this strategic partnership ties LBC and Sigue together, the real beneficiaries of this collaboration are consumers sending money to their homes all over the world.” said Randy Nilsen, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer for Sigue. “Consumers will now be able to cross-remit between our two companies, sending money through LBC and then paying out via Sigue.”
Hugo Bonilla, President for LBC in North America said, “We are always looking for ways to make things easier and more convenient for the global Filipino. Through the Sigue partnership, we will be able to deliver more smiles across the globe, and move what you value for your family back home.”
To kick off the new alliance, LBC and Sigue will conduct a joint consumer promotion from December 4, 2014 through December 31, 2014. Consumers who send money transfers to the Philippines using Sigue for LBC payout during the promotional period will be automatically entered into a sweepstakes. LBC and Sigue are giving away 4 iPads this December 2014 and there will be one winner every week.
