FAYETTEVILLE, Ark., April 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile solutions firm Field Agent today announced the full-scale release of Jicco, the world's first on-demand, retail search engine. Following its successful beta phase, Jicco is now fully available to business professionals in need of "instant answers to pressing retail questions."
"We've spent the past seven years building and enhancing our mobile crowdsourcing model to generate increasingly faster and better data," said Marc Yount, president and COO of Field Agent. "Jicco is simply the next evolution of our crowdsourcing system."
Hundreds of brands, retailers, and agencies tried Jicco during the beta phase, with many praising the search engine for its speed and convenience.
"Jicco is a really great tool," said Danni-Lynn Kilgallen, national retail account manager for Energizer Holdings. "In the past if we needed to know something that was happening in the field quickly it meant several calls to field supervisors…Jicco provides the information without the need for a real time fire drill."
With the full-scale release, Field Agent is offering both pre-paid, value packages as well as a pay-per-question option for companies needing more flexibility. Retail and branded-goods professionals may also try Jicco for free. Brian Stormes of Henkel Consumer Goods was one of many to give Jicco a trial run:
"We regard Field Agent to be a game changer in the industry as they introduced and implemented the crowdsourcing platform for retail," said Stormes. "We hope to gain a competitive advantage [through Jicco] by having access to information and insights faster and more efficiently than our competition."
