SAN FRANCISCO, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Engage3, a pioneering retail intelligence and digital marketing solution provider, is partnering with more than 25 food and beverage manufacturers to offer consumers a new shopping experience. Using Engage3's flagship consumer application, ShoppingScout app, consumers can find information on the product lines of these and other companies, local retailers selling the products and receive discount offers.
"We're committed to helping our users save time and money, and to giving them the tools to live better," said Engage3 CEO, Ken Ouimet. "Adding these specialty manufacturers and their premium products is just one of the many ways we work to add value to our shoppers' lives."
Among the new partners are Buddy Squirrel, a maker of gourmet chocolate confections and nutritional snacks, and B&R Liquid Adventure, whose beverage product line can be found at leading supermarkets, club stores and natural food stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. Engage3 expects to have more than 50 manufacturer partners by the end of May.
"We have an established base of people here in Wisconsin who grew up with Buddy Squirrel products, but there are greater untapped communities that can be reached through ShoppingScout. This is a brand new audience who want information about the products they want to buy -- it's fantastic exposure for us to highlight specific items, share our mission and tell our stories," said Emily Zager, Marketing Coordinator at Buddy Squirrel, LLC.
ShoppingScout helps users create shopping lists, discover new products and save money on their purchases. New manufacturing and retailing partners are introduced on the ShoppingScout blog on a weekly basis with a background on the company, complementary recipes and interviews with the creators of these products.
Engage3 is a consumer sales platform that works with retailers, manufacturers and media outlets to deliver personal shopping experiences and provide increased sales and market share.
