The moderately sized progressive software company I work for provides Magento development services for e-commerce websites.Because Magento is open source it has an almost overwhelming number of custom extensions and modules to choose from. The company produces mobile Location-based services that allows you to discover new places, download coupons, and share your location with selected friends.
Example actions include: You can choose to provide customers with real rewards (free products, discount coupons, upgrades, etc.) that can be instantly redeemed in a retail store, or redeemed at any time, or virtual rewards – either way, you’re building a strong, real community around your brand while increasing foot traffic to your venues. – Loopt ( the best way to connect with people and places around you, today introduced Reward Alerts into its mobile app for i Phone, i Pod Touch and Android* phones.“Reward Alerts represent one more step in a direction we see as really important for location-based services – making mobile more simple and real-time,” said Sam Altman, co-founder and CEO of Loopt.“With Loopt, we can alert people to what’s going on around them right now, which opens up tremendous opportunities for consumers to learn about a great deal.I did not want someone else to purchase the domain and re-purpose the site for something that had nothing in common with the original website.I believe that folks should remain aware of Loopt 's innovative mobile technology and market leading mobile programming capabilities that made it such a strategic acquisition for Green Dot.Many businesses that use Magento's CMS can become paralyzed with their choice, not being sure which ones would be best for their business needs.We help get a custom Magento website functioning smoothly and securely by developing a strategy for choosing and executing the right Magento customization. Recently I discovered that the domain for Loopt was available, I bought it with the goal of recreating as much of its original content as possible from archived pages.Currently the specific Loopt service is only available in Chicago but the company is planning to spread it nationwide.Loopt has basically beat Groupon to bringing this Location-Based Service to its own app, while with Groupon users still have to type their zip code to get more locationally relevant deal notifications. Loopt was a company based in Mountain View, California, which provided a service for smartphone users so they could share their location selectively with other people.It was one of the last of the pure play location-based-services companies before being acquired by the by banking and payment services firm Green Dot Corp. After the purchase looptmix.com's domain eventually expired and the website disappeared from the internet.
