HiFu, the company -

Our communications and business always start with a “Hi”, no matter the culture or country. Our mission is to fundamentally change the way that people communicate, especially when they are in another country with a different culture and language. Communication can exist and evolve in numerous ways. For example, Chinese travelers may decide to explore Woodbury Premium Outlets near New York. They can learn about the merchandise in their native language, and then conduct the checkout process with the simple greeting of “Hi” using our HiFu mobile app to smoothly complete the transaction.

We provide targeted mobile promotions and discounts for those traveling from overseas to shop at U.S. premium merchants.
