Near Me Now
Near Me Now founder Victoria Mann was sat in her local hairdressers in the middle of the day and realised the number of chairs that were empty and hairdressers standing around. This sparked the idea for the Near me now app which allows independent companies to advertise appointment or promotional offers up and down your local high street. With the aim of a one-stop shop for all information and deals in your local area.
Near Me Now aim to drive customers to small high street business by utilising emerging technology to display deals to customers when they’re in the area.
Increasing Engagement by Utilising Augmented Reality
Near Me Now came to CEMET to make their product stand out by adopting emerging technology to maximise their effect and increase engagement. You can view your local deals in feed view, map view or Augmented Reality view. You hold up your phone and the high street comes alive, bringing shop windows at the other end of the street to you and showcase the offers they have at that particular moment.
It means flexibility for the business to change and schedule deals and more and more deals for you. Looking for a coffee shop? Hold up your phone and find the best deal at that exact moment.
Continued Momentum After Engaging with The CEMET Programme
