Local Businesses Can Now Use Online Dashboard to Help Them Manage the Performance of their Groupon Experience in Real-Time
Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN) today announced that Merchant Centre is now available in the UK. Merchant Centre provides local businesses with analytics that will help them track the ROI from partnering with Groupon in real time, including a complete understanding of the performance across featured deals, customer acquisition and feedback, and redemptions.
"It is fantastic to have all the information regarding redeemed vouchers as it takes away a lot of stress. I can now be prepared when the end of a deal is coming as to how many clients to expect." - Bel Viso Beauty, Brighton:
"Groupon is taking steps to really keep the merchant in mind as we become the platform for local commerce," said Roy Blanga, UK Managing Director.
