Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 16, 2014
Today, Looken (http://www.looken.com) announced its newest application features: an online deal engine that offers a real-time online marketplace that is controlled by the user, connecting consumers with deals happening now. Looken offers a service, allowing users to try the service out before buying a subscription. When the user sees an increase in customer count, revenue and repeat customers, there is an option to subscribe to the premium service; the plans offer a set number of offers up to 75 per month, not included in the basic version.
Their application features offer a cost-effective way for businesses to promote deals online. Looken can be easily opened on a desktop or mobile device; deals happening now can be found in a moment's notice. Now, consumers have the power to be in the know and get great Looken deals as soon as they occur. Gone are the days when the consumer has to wait for coupons in the mail. While using these features, merchants can entice customers to make a purchase when business is slow by posting a Looken deal.
Looken technology executives did the research to find out what features customers and merchants want in an application. Their new features allow users to up-sell impulsive buyers by posting real-time promotions. The Looken application will get customers in the door, allowing restaurant staff to up-sell appetizers, drinks, and desserts.
“Looken is the ultimate restaurant solution, putting merchants in the driver seat, controlling customer flow, on demand business, consumer impulse decisions all at a fraction of the cost of competitor products. Looken will set the standard for restaurant deals, offers and happenings, mutually benefiting both retailer and consumer” - according to Wesley Eder of Looken
Currently, it is estimated that over 40 million online users use online coupons for purchases. Looken will acquire a large piece of this market share with their business model. Anyone using the application will notice it is simple and convenient to use on a mobile device or desktop. For example, a merchant has a wine dinner with 20 seats available, the merchant uses Looken to enter the wine dinner information, with limited spots available, the customer sees there are 5 remaining spots open, and through social media, chats his Looken friends who redeem the remaining spots.
Their technology will allow businesses including: restaurants, spas, beauty, services, and eventually goods – to control their deals in real-time. While they might offer suggestions, Looken doesn’t restrict the kind of deals that can be offered. The user is in control of the deal: offer itself, duration, quantity; it’s all on demand.
Looken is the future of social deal engines; it is a free, real- time cost effective tool. It allows the merchant to control when they want business in the door, allows them to focus on what is important to them. Customers do not necessarily have to purchase vouchers; they simply click on a deal happening now, and they can redeem the code at the point of purchase. This means real-time and they don’t necessarily have to pre-plan, which is why impulse comes into play while using the Looken application.
Looken is an online social deal engine. It’s a real-time online marketplace that is controlled by the merchant, connecting consumers with deals happening now.
