SinglePoint Delivers With Official Launch of Dynamic Location Based App for Established Service Providers
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/01/15 -- SinglePoint, Inc. (OTC: SING), a state-of-the-art mobile technology and full-service mobile marketing company, is pleased to announce the official launch of Oomy: a location based, real-time tracking application that enables businesses to track, communicate, and streamline delivery operations including fleet management, commodity delivery and much more. Location and mapping technologies are powered by Glympse, the leader in location sharing technology.
SinglePoint will launch Oomy in a strategic Beta with plans to build-out custom tools for each intended vertical in an effort to "uberize" the service industries. SinglePoint anticipates participation from customers in its current verticals to participate in the Beta. SinglePoint will use feedback gathered during the 90-day trial to implement in an expanded, advanced secondary Beta, which will include the implementation of SinglePoint mobile payment technology. Customers will now order, pay and watch the delivery in real time.
Oomy differentiates itself by complimenting established delivery services and helping them improve efficiency and increase communication. In addition to vehicle tracking, Oomy allows merchants to engage customers in a number of ways, including the ability to send messages which notify customer when to expect their delivery, repair person, etc. From these messages customers can opt to track the driver in real time.
SinglePoint CEO Greg Lambrecht states, "We are very excited to be providing these services. It is solving the annoying question of 'When will my delivery or service person be here?' Everyone has experienced being told their delivery will arrive between eight and one. We want to narrow that gap. With Oomy, delivery and at-home services are able to let their customers know exactly when to open their front door."
As a recent TechTarget analysis states, "Geolocation apps are the long-anticipated next frontier in mobile technology. They stand to shake up industries from retail to healthcare by transforming how companies interact with customers, say industry analysts and insiders. The ability to identify a customer's location at any time opens up seemingly endless sales, marketing and business opportunities."
SinglePoint believes with smart phones and GPS technology there is no reason anyone should have to wait around or wonder when a delivery or service will arrive. Oomy provides this technology to small and mid-size companies with an affordable, easy to use app.
Competitors in the industry include PostMates, FleetMatics, and Drizly. Companies in the space have accumulated over $78 million in funding. SinglePoint expects a successful Beta toward attracting arrangements in line with the going industry rate.
