Sean Toal, Commercial Director of Co-operative Food:
“We’re keen to make use of cutting-edge technologies, and mobile proximity marketing means we can target customers with specific offers and engage with them directly,”
Promotions such as this demonstrate that businesses do not need to rely on FourSquare, Groupon, or other online geolocation services, to interact with mobile-based customers.
