Near Me Now

FOR Cardiff is excited to work in collaboration with NearMeNow – an app that brings all independent businesses together in one place online.

Pushing shop front advertising beyond traditional boundaries into the palms of the hands of each smartphone user in the local community, whether they’re at home, in the office or in a coffee shop nearby.

Helping customers make the decision on where to shop before leaving home and ensuring that those already on the high street take advantage of every opportunity before leaving, keeping people shopping local for longer.

With a messaging feature that has been dubbed as ‘the WhatsApp for business’, customers can send messages by simply touching the business’ icon on a map, removing the need to search for the business’ telephone number or their social media account.

To complete the digital toolkit, a transactional feature is included to enable customers to remotely secure high street goods or services.

Once on the high street the NearMeNow app transforms into a truly interactive digital experience through augmented reality. Advertising appears as tiles overlaid on the real-world camera view, allowing customers to interact with their surroundings.

We’re thrilled to be placing this exciting new technology in the hands of small business owners ahead of some of the giants in their sector.

The NearMeNow team will be visiting your business this week to get you set up and ready to start using the app immediately.
