Scanther is ideally suited for businesses that have a physical location. Scanther will officially launch in Austin, Texas at South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive on March 10-13, 2013.

Scanther is a complete solution for more social media reviews, likes, and follows. Each Scanther kit comes with a smart counter sign, 2 smart decals, 2 smart window clings, and a hosted mobile site to facilitate social media interaction with customers.

Scanther works by engaging customers to choose from scanning a QR code, tapping an NFC tag, or text messaging to interact with the sign. Customers are then sent to a custom mobile site built with the Scanther Mobile Site Builder that has been designed to engage customers with social media.

Major benefits of Scanther include:

  1. Connecting with your current customers by using Smart Signs throughout your business;
  2. Correcting artificial imbalances in the number of negative vs. positive online reviews;
  3. A hosted mobile website that is easy to setup; and
