Glance Launches Key New Marketing Initiatives; Glance Pay Discovery Feature in Final Stages

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 20, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE:GET) (FKT:GJT) has launched a series of new marketing initiatives to promote its free mobile application Glance Pay and its participating restaurants.

Glance has deployed a team of Brand Ambassadors to help integrate Glance Pay at Glance’s participating restaurants and to increase Glance’s marketing efforts in Vancouver. The Brand Ambassadors train and educate restaurant staff on the benefits of using and promoting Glance Pay to their restaurant patrons.

Additionally, Glance’s Brand Ambassadors are increasing consumer awareness about Glance’s participating restaurants and Glance Pay through robust guerrilla marketing in Vancouver’s downtown core.

“Deploying an aggressive guerrilla marketing campaign is the cornerstone for joint success with restaurants,” says Christina Rao, Glance’s VP of Investor Relations. “The patron downloads our app on the street and gets a discount at the restaurant while collecting rewards. It’s a win-win for all.”

Glance plans to serve as a powerful marketing agent to increase the customer base for its participating restaurants and Glance Pay.

Furthermore, Glance announces that Glance Pay is in the final stages of launching its Restaurant Discovery feature, which will allow users to use Glance Pay’s app and website to decide where to dine by reviewing photos and through location, cuisine, price range and key-word searches. This exciting new feature will allow Glance Pay users to effortlessly choose their dining experience.

“The Glance Pay ‘Discover Your City’s Best’ online and in app experience will complete the circle for Glance Pay users by allowing them to quickly and easily identify a Glance Pay restaurant that meets their daily requirements,” says Glance’s Chief Marketing Officer Peter Haggarty. “As a value add partner to the restaurant industry, our goal is to continually find new and exciting ways to increase new customer flow and offer return visit loyalty programs that will increase revenues for our participating restaurants.”
