Retailigence Corporation, the leading independent provider of local store inventory data, has announced a new alliance with Mobile Fringe; a Toronto based mobile marketing and consulting firm. By combining their capabilities, the two firms can now deliver a unique, turnkey solution for North American shopping centers that greatly enhances their m-commerce offerings for the upcoming holiday season and beyond.
By integrating the Retailigence API, Mobile Fringe can now add on-site product search capabilities to shopping mall applications. This ensures quality foot traffic as well as access to rich purchase intent data for marketing optimization and tenant acquisition purposes. The API is connected to a database of over 6.5M products, many of which are conveniently available at shopping malls across the US and Canada.
“Bringing more foot-traffic to shopping centers and malls has a tremendous benefit to both retailers and the mall owners and operators,” says Retailigence’s Head of Shopping and Lifestyle Centers, Jonathan Taylor. “By partnering with Mobile Fringe, Retailigence can combine the convenience of e-Commerce with the social experience of the mall.”
Mobile Fringe has extensive background in m-commerce and app development. By partnering with Retailigence, the company is now in the unique position to offer a product search solution to retail and shopping center clients. For shopping malls, it is in their best interest to create interactive smartphone applications that not only allow consumers to interact with the property, but also assist them throughout their visit.
“Property management and retailers are the core focus for our mobile marketing company,” states Steve Sorge, CEO Mobile Fringe. “Partnering with Retailigence shows our continued commitment to bring to market the most innovative and elegant solutions for shopping centers. This is an amazing new feature and we are all excited.”
Consumers looking to experience the integration first hand can download the Las Vegas Town Square iPhone Application created by Mobile Fringe. The free download is available in the iTunes app store.
“Town Square is excited to bring product level information to our customers,” said Jaimesen Mapes, Marketing Director, Town Square Las Vegas. “It is something that both supports our retailers and strengthens our position in the market.”
