ikman.lk, Sri Lankaâ€™s largest online market place, announced the launch of the siteâ€™s all new mobile application (app). The app has been designed to offer a high quality user experience and to facilitate direct access to the site once it has been downloaded free of charge from the Google Playstore.
With Internet users on the rise, growing year on year at an average of 10% in SL and the majority of the Internet users accessing the net through their mobile devices, the launch of ikmanâ€™s mobile app is timely and in keeping with this mobile shift trend. It is stated that the majority of traffic to the ikman site is from mobile.
Commenting on the launch of the mobile app, Stefan Beekmeyer. Director Marketing & Salesof ikman.lk said, â€œNo matter what products we have to offer, our goal is to create a portal which is conveniently accessible by any user of the Internet. The all new â€˜ikman appâ€™ was created to enhance customer experience and I am confident that our buyers and sellers will find this app very user-friendly and convenient. While most of our traffic is generated through mobile devices, we have always been one step ahead in value propositions and I am happy that we are now able to add more value to ikman users with the app, rather than our users browsing through the mobile web to access the site.â€
The main advantages of having the ikman app over browsing the mobile web to access the site consist of three features, namely; speed, the ease of usage and the ability to manage ads. Customer could now browse ikman.lk much faster and cost efficiently through the inbuilt data-saving mode for those with limited data speeds or plans. The feature doesn't load images by default therefore the users are in total control of any heavy data consuming tasks.
The app has also been tailor-made to browse different categories and apply filters with much convenience and ease. Keywords of previously browsed items also make it easier for users searching for the same items from time to time.
The ikman app has been designed with a simple and friendly interface allowing its users to browse through classified advertisements and advertisers to post their advertisement faster and with greater convenience. For an example, a person who wishes to sell a product on ikman.lk could upload a picture of the product via the mobile app which will directly be updated on the ikman.lk website.
ikman.lk has also planned exciting competitions where individuals could win valuable prizes daily.
