CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DeepMarkit Corp., (“DeepMarkit” or the “Corporation”) (TSX-V:MKT)(OTCQB:MKTDF) is pleased to announce that the development of its Gamify App has been completed and will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
The Gamify App was developed by DeepMarkit to provide merchants with the ability to leverage games to convert store visitors into customers. This simple application allows merchants to have their branded games up and running in their store in a matter of only minutes. The product was built on the back-end technology of DeepMarkit and its unique and powerful games-based advertising and promotions capabilities. The Gamify App gives merchants of all sizes the ability to run gamified promotions and deliver rewards to visitors while collecting marketing data from consumers.
The Gamify App will initially be available as an application on the Shopify platform followed by a stand-alone App that can easily integrate into any e-commerce website. For the initial launch, merchants will be able to use three different games and instantly award coupons as instant win prizes for playing the games. “Our goal is to leverage our powerful technology and give merchants a simple but effective tool to give store visitors and customers a fun experience,” stated Carter Chalmers, Director of Business Development. “As a merchant, if you can deliver a fun experience to a customer and reward them with something of tangible value, you can collect valuable consumer data and increase your sales. It’s win-win for merchants and consumers; our Gamify App is a product that lets all merchants leverage the power of games to engage with their customers.”
DeepMarkit will be showcasing the Gamify App at the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) Big Show next week in New York. This is the flagship event of the National Retail Federation, held over 4 days in New York. It is the world’s leading annual retail event. DeepMarkit will be adding additional subscription tiers with more games and features over the coming months. Deepmarkit is also developing an SMS delivery system for merchants to deliver the games and promotions in brick-and-mortar retail locations.
The Company is also investigating other opportunities to exploit its technology platform.
