State College, PA (PressExposure) October 06, 2011 -- AHG, Inc. announced that retailers can sign-up for AHG mCommerce mobile catalog service free of charge.
AHG mCatalog is a mobile catalog of specials / promotions from brick-and-mortar and online retailers for smartphones and tablets. The service offers truly interactive product presentations, including image albums, audio and video. It gives users access to the best features of online, print and mobile media. Mobile catalog can be read anywhere, including off-line, just as a printed catalog. Customers get "push" notifications on new promotions and help retailers spread the word by using social media.
The 100 million owners of smartphones and the 25 million owners of tablet devices are the hottest new segment of retailing. Those numbers are growing daily. By 2013 more consumers will access the Internet from mobile devices than from a desktop or laptop computer. With Amazon unveiling Kindle Fire android tablet, companies from other sectors rush to become mobile players. For small and medium-size retailers integration of mobile technology in their day-to-day operations and required up-front investment can be overwhelming. AHG mCatalog is specifically designed for this group of merchants. It gives retailers an opportunity to use full-scale mobile catalog without hiring new employees, consultants or purchasing expensive software.
