Velona Cuddles, the leading Diaper brand in Sri Lanka, won the ‘Best use of Mobile Award’ in the retail sector at the recently concluded SLT Zero One Awards. In addition, Velona Cuddles also won the 1st runner-up award for the ‘Best Website / Microsite’ in the retail sector. Organized by the leading digital service provider, Sri Lanka Telecom (SLT), SLT Zero One awards was held on 4th March at the Shangri-La Hotel, Colombo.

The Best use of Mobile award was awarded to Velona Cuddles for their innovative first-ever diaper subscription app in Sri Lanka. While a new parent provides a baby with undivided care, the flexibility to step out to get some of the required essentials may be hindered. Getting on this subscription plan is not only convenient for parents but also helps them save a considerable amount of money by getting the diapers at a discounted rate and the free delivery helps save their time as well. The app comes with a ‘delayed start option’ so that the expecting parents may set start date to sync up a couple of weeks before their expected due date. Another feature of this app is that it gives the opportunity to create multiple profiles and subscriptions for kids through the account dashboard. A convenient sizing slider to help parents choose the best size for their child is available to ensure better comfort levels. Currently, this service is available island wide and Diapers are provided at a discounted rate much to the delight of the customers.
Velona Cuddles was adjudged 1st runner-up for its website www.velonacuddles.com which not only showcases its entire product range in detail, but is also an informative website for parents and pregnant mums.
