Filipino seafarers will now be able to conveniently select, buy, and pay for gifts online and have them delivered directly to their families in the Philippines through a partnership forged by Döhle Seafront Crewing (Manila), Inc. with Voyager Innovations, Inc. and Smart eMoney, Inc.

Through Takatack, the online shopping discovery platform fueled by Voyager Innovations, Döhle Seafront’’s community of seafarers will be treated to a wide selection of gifts and products that they can send to their families. A special section in Takatack (www.takatack.com/ofw) is now available exclusively for the Döhle Seafront community.

To further make shopping at Takatack more convenient, Döhle Seafront’s community of seafarers and their family members will be provided with their own Smart Money accounts. Smart Money is the mobile payment solution from Smart eMoney that comes with a cash card linked to a mobile phone menu for easier transactions.

While the partnership’s goal is to continue to provide benefits exclusive to Dohle Seafront’s seafarers, the initiative seeks to give more opportunities for seafarers to connect to their families.

“This service and all the discounts are exclusive to Döhle Seafront seafarers who can now send gifts to their loved ones back home even if they are on board. We are committed to develop partnerships that will provide value-added benefits to our 5,000 seafarers as well as to their families – the main reason why they work at sea,” said Atty. Iris V. Baguilat, president of Döhle Seafront. Döhle Seafront is committed to forge more partnerships in the future with end goal of promoting family ties among the company’s seafarers.

Benjie S. Fernandez, COO at Voyager Innovations and Managing Director at Smart eMoney, believes that collaboration with Döhle Seafront can further empower Filipino seafarers and their families to enjoy the digital life as they are able to access services and offers specially targeted to their needs.

“Our Takatack section for seafarers and Smart Money tie-in for convenient online payments is an additional means for them to show their affection to their loved ones.

This digital approach is fast, convenient and secure said Fernandez.

With this partnership, Döhle Seafront seafarers can order from the special Takatack page whenever they have access to Internet-docked at port or while on board the ship. Takatack will be a preferred online shopping destination because of the variety of choices catering to the tastes of Filipino seafarers and their families.

Takatack has more than 400,000 products from many of the country’s trusted online stores, including Rocket Internet-backed Zalora and Lazada, together with the thousands of merchants who established their own online shops through the TackThis! platform.

With Smart Money, seafarers receiving their salary through their Döhle Seafront payroll via Smart Money as a fund source can use it for online payments. The physical Smart Money card can also be used in payment terminals accepting MasterCard. Through Smart Money’s mobile menu, Döhle Seafront’s seafarers can also transfer funds to their loved ones in the Philippines as they will also be enabled by Smart Money cards.

Döhle Seafront Crewing (Manila) Inc. is an independent company that provides excellence and quality in crewing for ship owners and ship managers globally. It is the crewing arm of Döhle Group in the Philippines.
