BEAUMONT, Texas, May 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- MoJolt Inc. today announced the launch of a new mobile app that is the first of its kind for consumers in Southeast Texas, designed to help them save thousands of dollars each year and stimulate retail business for local companies and national brands.
From Beaumont to Houston, Southeast Texas is a thriving area with a high concentration of small and regional businesses – all looking for a way to help their names rise above the noise and get noticed by consumers. MoJolt is working with local stores, brands and resellers to connect businesses with prospective customers via its free mobile phone application that delivers discounts and deals based on location, favorite stores and when they plan to buy.
"Consumers are spending more time on their mobile phones and in social media than ever before," said Ravi Jagannathan, Co-Founder and CEO of MoJolt, Inc. "MoJolt offers a compelling channel for merchants to offer coupons and deals and reach consumers where they 'live'. By combining convenience with tangible value, MoJolt enables merchants to get and keep customers."
MoJolt is designed from the ground up to provide users an intuitive, secure and consistent mobile savings experience every single time. MoJolt offers a sleek interface and powerful features, such as in-app scanning, a Saved Deals wallet, keyword search, location-aware targeting, click-to-call button and "Share the Savings." MoJolt even alerts you when new deals are available and when a saved coupon is about to expire – so you'll never miss out on a great deal again.
"As a small business we are always looking for cost-effective ways to stand out from the competition," said Daniel Richards, owner of Park Avenue Cleaners. "With all of the recent changes to technology, we're excited to be able to offer special deals and coupons that shoppers can use on their mobile phones. Since most people always have their phones with them, it seems like the perfect way to help connect with our customers and spread the word about our business locally."
MoJolt puts saving money in the hands of consumers, with a one-of-a-kind "Share the Savings" functionality that lets users unlock the power of group-sourcing and social-sharing. Using the "Scan Deal Image" feature you can use your phone to scan in and share any coupon or deal you find to instantly pass along offers to other MoJolt users.
MoJolt also offers social-sharing features that let you notify your network of friends and followers about great deals via email, on Facebook or Twitter. Just tap a button and your deal will be sent or posted along with a link for others to join in the savings.
Pricing and Availability
MoJolt will be available to users in Southeast Texas beginning May 17, 2011. Shoppers throughout Texas and across the country will be able to use MoJolt this coming June when the service launches nationwide.
MoJolt is a free app that is currently available to users of iPhones (version 4) Android phones (V2.0 and higher) and html5–compatible browser based smartphones (Blackberry Torch).
