Platform helps shoppers find deals via mobile

Our partnerships with FastMall and Point Inside provide maps of more than 1,000 major malls and outlet centers that make it easy for shoppers to find merchants with deals.”

What makes Spotzot different it the way it offers information. Rather than a simple listing of products or deals it offers shoppers content – another hot area. The company has also recently partnered with FastMall and Point Inside, two popular mall apps that help consumers find things in brick-and-mortar stores.

“From a consumer’s perspective it’s about convenient, useful information that they can get to easily,” said Schreitmueller. “At a mall there could be 200 stores; using Spotzot merchants have the potential to serve deals and information for at least half of those stores. Those deals can be shopped by category, price, etc.”

FastMall and PointInside use Spotzot landing pages so that deals and information are easy to find. Deals are contextually targeted and based on location.
