Groupon Now – Mobile App

Groupon, one of our favorite daily deal websites takes a step further with an announcement to release Groupon Now, an application for smart phones. Groupon Now is said to be an application that will change how we choose to eat, play, and shop.

The application is simple yet very efficient, a user can choose between the two buttons, ‘I’m hungry,’ or ‘I’m bored,’ deal-a-day will then present a list of things he or she can do at time and that location. Businesses also benefit from this application as they can now choose which day they want the deals to be offered to the public; this gives a business a chance to make more sales on days that they are not busy.

Andrew Mason, Founder and CEO of Groupon said, ‘For merchants, the daily deal is like teeth whitening, and Groupon Now is like brushing your teeth. It can be an everyday thing to keep your business going.’ Groupon is regarded as one of the fastest growing companies, it launched during the Facebook and when iPhone became available, Groupon was able to grow even faster allowing you to lose the old days of clipping coupons to buying great deals online.

The $25 billion company set to release Groupon Now in April and with the growing number of subscribers of 70 million, Groupon believes that Groupon Now will be the future of commerce.  I wonder if Groupon Now will also be available for Singapore with its sister site, Beeconomic. Which reminds me, which other daily deals website are you using other than Groupon? Why do you choose that website?

    More and more deal sites in Singapore are having their own mobile app. For example, alldealsasia.com has just launched its iphone app weeks ago. Nevertheless, Groupon has the first mover advantage by introducing Groupon Now to the already-saturated-with-deals market. Groupon Now can easily satisfy the needs of users at the right time and right place.
