Loyal Zoo launches UK cloud-based loyalty app for independent merchants

Based in Chiswick, West London, Loyal Zoo Ltd is the first UK company to develop a loyalty app which works without paper, plastic or QR codes. Everything is done with just a couple of taps. The Loyalzoo app was developed specifically for small and independent merchants. This is an important event in the retail trade. Until now, it is the big brands which have benefitted from the digital revolution. Now, the independent sector has a loyalty app tailored to suit its needs.

Many shops are adopting the system, in Chiswick as well as in other parts of London and the UK. These range from coffee shops, bakeries, beauty salons, pubs, and even dental clinics. Here are some of the unique features of the Loyalzoo app:

* Simple one-tap use. The loyalzoo app is a purely cloud-based system. So there is no plastic, cardboard or QR codes. Anyone with an iPhone or any Android phone can get started straightaway. It will soon be available for Blackberry and Windows phone users.

* Local shops in one place. Many independent shops may have their own loyalty scheme. But customers are tired of carrying around pieces of cardboard. Now, they can just launch the app and see all their rewards in one place.

* Suitable for any retail outlet. There are two types of scheme: points or stampcard. The stampcard will be used by shops with a simple range of goods – coffee shops or drycleaners for example. The points-based scheme works best for clothes shops, restaurants or pubs, outlets with a greater diversity of products. Both schemes allow for up to three different types of reward.

* Simple sign-up. Customer sign-up could not be more simple. Many people using independent shops do not want to fill out long forms giving all sorts of unnecessary information. They can sign-up and get started with name only, or even a nickname.

* Facebook integration. Customers also have the option to sign-in via Facebook, allowing them post their checks-in to their Facebook wall automatically.

“A loyalty app for independents is an innovation whose time has come,” says director and co-founder Mark Ryan. “The number of shops offering their own loyalty scheme is now unmanageable for the consumer. People can’t keep track of them, yet merchants know that rewarding loyalty is a must.”

The launch also coincides with growing concern for the future of the high street. The closure of so many local shops as well as the rise of online shopping has left Britain’s high streets in a parlous state. After years of decline, there are signs of a return to supporting local merchants. Neighbourhood shops are appreciated now, not just for the uniqueness of their offering, but also for their contribution to the life of an area.

The Loyalzoo idea is a blend of tradition and high-tech. “We’re out to support local shops with the very latest technology,” said Ryan. “In the past, when it came to innovation, independents have come last. Now they will leapfrog the big brands because the Loyalzoo app is so much more advanced than what the chains use, yet much simpler to use for both customers and merchants. We’ve made it super-smooth and simple. A busy shop, pub or restaurant can’t have it any other way. And it looks great. Here’s a way of supporting the High Street which benefits both merchant and consumer.”

Loyalzoo 1.2, the innovative app designed to connect local, independent merchants to their customers, and to offer them rewards for repeat business, is Free and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Lifestyle category. It also available on Google Play.

Life Career Package; A Mobile App Built to Help the Over 50s Out of Work

It’s My LIFE ltd, a digital career service, is proud to announce that LIFE CAREER PACKAGE 1.0 is now globally available for download on the App Store, Google Play and BlackBerry. The Life Career Package is a specialised, professional application designed as a guide to planning and realising career, educational goals or business plans in modern Europe.

With over 3.5 million people between the age of 50 and 64 out of work in the UK, redundancy and unemployment is a huge problem for the over 50 community; many of whom possess a wealth of skill and ambition, yet are turned away from employment because of their age.

We need to face facts, there are currently over 21 million people over the age of 50 in the UK and that number is growing fast. By 2013, it is estimated that there will be more people over the age of 65 than under 15. The ageing population is the biggest issue that society is facing.

The Life Career Package is a specialised, professional application specifically designed to assist those in the 50 age group with their career development. Whether returning to work or education, changing careers, becoming self-employed or even starting a business, these are tough times in the job market and the 50 demographic has been one of the hardest-hit by the recession and recent changes to benefits legislation.

To overcome these obstacles in modern Britain it pays to be up to date with all of the relevant knowledge and know-how, which is where the Life Career Package comes in.

‘Life’ is a useful and accessible guide to planning and realising a career, educational goal or business plan in Britain, designed to simplify and explain the complex routes into each profession, with the emphasis on assisting the 50+ sector.

The app contains simple, easy-to-use colour-coded guides to industry sectors. This enables the user to research and learn more about their specific areas of interest. They may then plan a route to the position they want to reach in three clicks. The Life Career Package explains the certified systems of accreditation which govern access to certain areas of employment and the qualifications and skills needed for professional growth and achievement. It can even help you book your driving theory test or CSCS test within the Life Career Package.

The app also features an efficient, easy to use system which guides the user through the notoriously tricky process of becoming self-employed or setting up a business, with a guide to how to save money and take advantage of the support and financial assistance available to small businesses. With UK entrepreneurs set to benefit from a further GBP69 million of governmental funding over the coming year, this app ensures that those setting up an enterprise do not miss out on any of the funding to which they are entitled.

The impact of the worldwide recession on the UK jobs market means that it has never been harder to return to work, to change careers or to establish and successfully build your own business, especially if you have not been in education or work for some time, and are unfamiliar with the latest legislation, accreditation and training schemes. The Life Career Package helps to solve these problems often experienced by the 50+ age group, with a free limited version available to download to give the user the chance to see what an invaluable tool the Life Career Package can be.

Life Career Package – FREE 1.0 is available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category. This free limited version will give the user the chance to see what an invaluable tool the Life Career Package can be.
