Cave Shepherd Card Services and Digicel Barbados have joined hands to give small and medium-sized businesses service offerings aimed at meeting their specific needs. 

The partnership will provide data and essential services for registered businesses in Barbados who are part of Cave Shepherd’s card network. Operations Manager at Cave Shepherd, Keri Mapp said the service will address the needs of Cave Shepherd’s “growing business segment” including micro, small and medium-sized businesses.

Mapp said the company has seen significant growth from the transition to the Cave Shepherd VISA Debit Card, particularly on the mobile app and she urged local businesses to get on board with the movement. She noted it was a “convenient and affordable way” for business owners to collect payments in real-time as well as offering greater convenience, security and ease of doing business for customers.  

 

Senior Account Manager with Digicel, Gregory Puckerin said the partnership is a timely one as Digicel has placed renewed focus on meeting the needs of their range of customers, especially those within the small business sector.

Puckerin explained the product offerings will include Broadband PBX and WiFi in addition to roaming add-ons which he pointed out is an added benefit for business owners who travel to purchase raw materials.

“These products will help small businesses get the services that they need at an affordable price without having to shop multiple places for different things.”

The plans include data packages from as low as 6GB to 35 GB, and the talk/text plans range from 500 to 1,500 anywhere minutes. The base package will be offered at a 10 percent discount as a special offer for Cave Shepherd card services partners.

The partnership was announced today, November 6 at Digicel Headquarters in Warrens.
