Bridgeport, CT (PRWEB) January 13, 2011
With over 500 million active users, Facebook has become the most popular social networking utility worldwide. In fact, people spend over 700 billion minutes per month on the site. Thus, it was a natural step for international ecommerce solution Bongo International to integrate Facebook when developing a new technology geared towards its customers.
Launched this week, the Facebook app Bongo Alerts delivers real-time notifications to customers about
the status of their shipments. Posts are made to their walls when a shipment has been received at Bongo, when an Image Request is uploaded to their account, and when the shipment is sent out to their country. Additionally, customers are able to track their shipments through international package mapping directly through the app, without having to log in to their Bongo accounts.
According to Product Manager Jennean Morrison, this new technology is "a continuation of Bongo's commitment to communicate order status to customers in a timely manner." Certainly, innovative technology is one of the main aspects that has distinguished Bongo as a provider of global ecommerce solutions for US merchants and international consumers alike.
