PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 11, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobeam, creator of the award-winning technology that allows mobile barcodes to be read by any scanner in the market, announces the release of its beautifully redesigned Beep'nGo coupons and offers app for all Android smartphones.
Since launching in April, Beep'nGo has been downloaded nearly 8 million times with nearly zero marketing spend and has quickly established itself as the go-to app for consumers to get the best in-store discounts, offers, and coupons from leading national retailers, brands, and Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies. In the past 9 months, users have viewed tens of millions of in-app offers, driving over a million redeemed offers at retail stores. While Beep'nGo coupons and offers are available only in the United States and Canada at this time, the company has plans to bring its savings to more countries in 2015.
Until now, Beep'nGo has only been available for Samsung devices, but now the app is being released to all Android users. Furthermore, Beep'nGo has been completely redesigned based on the past half-year of customer feedback and key lessons learned.
"Mobile consumers love our focus on in-store offers, while other apps focus primarily on providing online offers targeted more for desktop view and redemption. Retailers also love how much traffic we are driving to their stores," said Kang Lee, President and CEO of Mobeam.
In just a short time, the Beep'nGo has claimed real estate alongside the biggest names in shopping, with downloads averaging 1 million installs per month. "While other companies like RetailMeNot and Coupons.com rely primarily on coupon content consumable online for their users, Beep'nGo was built from day one with the primary mission of providing savvy mobile shoppers the best deals to redeem while shopping at physical store locations. This focus definitely is resonating with users who want to weed through the many online deals while on-the-go and get right to the in-store offers they can access while in checkout lines – and this is responsible for our high adoption rate," Lee said.
In addition to finding the best deals on Beep'nGo, users globally can store their favorite loyalty, membership, and gift cards, along with tickets inside Beep'nGo to use at stores and venues everywhere. Beep'nGo's patented mobile shopping solution allows consumers with devices that are enabled with its technology to instantly transmit loyalty cards, coupons, gift cards, tickets, and vouchers from their smartphones to all Point of Sale (POS) scanners at retail stores without any hardware or software upgrades. Without Mobeam's technology, laser scanners, which make up the vast majority of scanners in the market today, cannot scan barcodes from mobile devices because of the reflective screen and the powerful backlit display. Mobeam's patented technology provides the first solution for this device-to-scanner communication barrier by converting barcoded information into beams of light that can be read by any scanner. This proprietary beaming technology has made Beep'nGo the leading loyalty card-based wallet on the market today.
