How can a mobile application help your business?

They provide instant information and provide customers with a direct way to contact a business from their iPhone or Android device. With our solutions, you can engage, inform, and impress your customers. We also provide solutions that are specifically designed to help build brand loyalty and create frequent buyers for your business with the use of our check in coupon system.

How can you build brand-loyalty with Urban Digital Apps?

Urban Digital Apps is the ideal solution for businesses looking to create brand loyalty and frequent buyers. We do so by providing businesses with a mobile application that rewards customers for frequent visits through coupon rewards that are unlocked using our “check in coupon system.”

How does the check in coupon system work?

When a customer checks in at a business’s location, they will receive a reward coupon for the 10th, 25th, 50th, 100th, 500th, and even 1000th check in. This coupon system is completely customizable by the business and can be edited in real time via our clients’ user panel.

These coupons will appear as images on the application and when used, they will be deleted with a push of a button on the user’s phone by the employer to ensure a coupon is not used multiple times. This also removes the need for additional equipment to verify the coupon such as barcode scanners or unique coupon codes, allowing a very low start up cost for businesses. This system is extremely simple, cost efficient, and very effective for businesses to build up brand-loyalty with their customers.
