FBU Teams Up With Pressi

5th March 2019 Paul Andrews

Family Business United has teamed up with Pressi, the online gifting service in order to give family firms the opportunity to offer gifts in the global arena.

Pressi was established in 2013 and enjoys a solid brand partner base, with respected and discerning brands including Tiptree, BMW, New Wolsey Theatre and Milsom Hotels & Restaurants. Pressi embraces the advances of technology by enabling consumers to ‘surprise a friend’ with a glass of something whilst celebrating, ‘delight a diner’ at their favourite restaurant or quite simply send an instant gift from anywhere in the world - ‘Buy & Send’ and ‘Receive & Spend’ monetary vouchers or packages via email and text. 

A great way to send a gift or reward someone at work for their efforts.

Pressi has developed a white label solution giving family business and brands the opportunity to provide a digital gift option for consumers who may not have sufficient time for a ‘posted’ gift card. Pressi has a unique proposition of appealing to a very wide demographic where you can #shoplocal from anywhere in the world, transmit a gift in seconds and utilise a modern day alternative to popping £10 in a birthday card.  In addition you can offer and inspire customers with some fabulous gift packages. 

As Paul Andrews, Founder and Managing Director of Family Business United explains, “Recruiting, retaining and motivating staff for businesses is difficult with the jobs market close to capacity so something as simple and easy to use as Pressi is a great way to reward staff.  It is also quick and easy to use with the benefit that the recipient receives the gift voucher almost immediately.  For us, working with another family business to help family firms boost their digital footprint and at the same time boost sales to a new audience is an added bonus too.”

Pressi is delighted to be partnering Family Business United and Sue Tasker Founder and Director of Pressi added, “Whilst Pressi is a technology based business,  the business is very much driven by the Pressi family.  The idea came to me in 2012 whilst trying to source an instant gift, my husband David came up with the brand name Pressi and offers support whilst  the design and logo were created by our daughters Charlotte and Victoria and the brand colour  inspired by my late grandmother who was a truly inspirational lady.”

“Pressi offers a great route to market for family firms to generate new interest in their products and there are no costs with signing up as a brand partner either.”
