Deals Nearby You launches in Dubai
Location-based deals service aims to stand out from group buying crowd
A new location-based deals service, ‘Deals Nearby You' has launched in Dubai.
The service, which is available as a mobile app, offers users discounts from retailers in their immediate vicinity based on GPS tracking.
Users can simply download and start the app, and it will show any special offers that are nearby.
For deal advertisers, the ‘Deals Nearby You Advertiser' app allows businesses to check how many users are nearby before posting a promotion, so that they can see how many potential customers they might have for a deal, and to set up deals on the fly for example to fill hotel rooms or restaurant bookings.
The service promises minimum discounts of 5%, and is already active in 20 countries worldwide.
Torben Kjeldgaard Trans, CEO of Trans Data Systemer, the developer of the service, commented: "With no need for daily emails to clog up your inbox, Deals Nearby You presents a refreshing way for customers to pick up the best offers when they want them. It is also a great opportunity for companies to talk to customer's right on their doorstep. Deals Nearby You offers global potential on a local scale. "Companies will be able to see a great ROI on their advertising investment as they know they are only talking to people who can benefit from the offer straight away."
The Deals Nearby You app is available for download for iPhone and Android mobile.
