Businesses saw massive digital transformations in 2020 owing to a combination of the continually increasing adoption of digital solutions across the globe and the effects of the pandemic that rendered a majority of corporate employees, business owners, and education professionals working from home. This resulted in a considerable shift in the demand for efficiency in supply chain and market response. HYKE, a fast-growing digital distribution platform that was launched in the last quarter of 2020 to remove any friction occurring between the manufacturers and the retailers, has expanded its client portfolio extensively within just one quarter of commencing business.
Providing instrumental assistance, HYKE brings extensive market research, real-time data visibility, and communication efficiency to manufacturers, retailers, and distributors to connect all B2B parties seamlessly.

With over 6000 stores and more than 8000 in-store staff from the retailers’ side already, HYKE provides a massive advantage to any supplier joining who can have full connection access to this retailer base.
In Saudi Arabia, HYKE is working with reputable telecom organizations, Zain Telecom and STC, wherein they provide HYKE with the stock for distributing the smartphones to its retailers situated across the country. HYKE has also got widely popular smartphone brands, Oppo and Realme on board in the kingdom. In the UAE, HYKE has added major e-commerce portals, Merlin and Task to its portfolio. Internationally leading smartphone brands that HYKE has brought on board in the country through these partnerships are Xiaomi, One Plus, and Red Magic.
