    (I’m embarrassed to ask, but what’s an “app?”)

    Once upon a time, a mobile phone just made calls.  Now, only the most basic mobile phones are call-only.  Instead, modern smartphones are powerful mini-computers that can run programs called “apps.” 

    More specifically, apps are those little square pictures you see when you turn on the average smartphone.  Examples include Angry Birds (a game), Gmail (for checking email), Pandora (for streaming music), and WatchESPN (for watching sports).  Basically, apps are what make smartphones “smart.” 

    When your business puts out an app, customers can download it to their smartphone and interact with your business on the go.  They can perform whatever functions you choose, from simple things to looking up your phone number, location, or upcoming events, to more complicated things like submitting orders or sending a message to a customer service rep., or a push notification going out to all your patrons with your App Store Native App.  Yes, App Store Apps are also referred to as Native Apps.

    How can you build brand-loyalty with GenM?

    OFox is the ideal solution for small businesses looking to create brand loyalty and frequent buyers. We do so by providing small 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 small businesses to build up brand-loyalty with their customers.
