Spott.com, a daily deal site that donates up to 50 percent of its proceeds to local charities, has announced their partnership with Parallel 6, a social media technology firm. The new partnership will allow Spott to offer deals on a custom branded mobile application using Parallel 6's Captive Reach technology.
Through this new technology, Spott subscribers can quickly and easily track and pinpoint local deals specific to their location and preferences and can also share them with friends. The partnership will not only expand Spott.com's reach, but continue to encourage new traffic to local businesses and garner financial support for local charities by providing urban deal seekers discounts that are redeemable instantly upon purchasing.
“We're looking forward to developing our company with Parallel 6,” said Maximilian Schwarz, CEO of Spott.com. “Their experience with social media optimization and movement into developing mobile applications is sure to propel us to be the first group-buying site that gives back to charities with an app that uses geo-fencing and open opportunities for us to expand our platform.”
In addition to providing Captive Reach technology to clients in the hospitality and retail markets, Parallel 6 also provides social media marketing and consulting services to help clients drive measurable business results through social media.
“We are very excited about this partnership,” said David Tuner, CEO of Parallel 6. “Spott.com's business model, which encourages community building through charitable deals and offers, is tightly aligned with our vision to deploy our technology into the consumer space with a unique message and approach.”
Spott and Parallel 6 will launch the new mobile application first in San Diego and Los Angeles, Calif., followed by additional markets in the US, Mexico and Canada later this year.
Spott.com is an online daily deal site offering instant discounts of up to 90% off local entertainment, services and restaurants. Spott is committed to helping unite and build communities through the common thread of giving while boosting local business. Donating up to 50% of its proceeds to sponsored charities, Spott allows for higher donations with increased purchases. Since launching, the socially-conscious online coupon site also participates heavily in fundraising functions and events for the San Diego community.
