We're delighted that two of our client app projects have been shortlisted for the eir Spider Awards this month - GeoDirectory (GeoFindIT) for "Best in Digital Geography and Location-Based Services" and Thorntons Recycling for "Best Customer Service and Retention Campaign".
The Púca team had a fun day exhibiting at the IDMA Loyalty 2015 conference in the Aviva Stadium yesterday. The theme of the event was "Show me The Love", and we were impressed with the speakers who really rose to the occasion and focused on ways to value customers and use shopper intelligence to personalise and target relevant offers and rewards.
Developed by Púca, the latest version of the GeoDirectory’s GeoFindIT app released this month has seen a major change in both the appearance and functionality. The revised app is available for both iOS and Android devices.
As everyone who works in the services and utility sectors knows, people these days expect to receive the very best of customer care. At a minimum this means being able to easily access and manage account information, check statements, change contact preferences, engage with the contact centre and make payments.

Meeting consumer expectations in today’s omnichannel retail environment is a daunting prospect. Consumers expect you to know who they are, what their favourite products are, and they want personalised and relevant recommendations. Consumers also want to move seamlessly between online / in-store browsing, through to reservation, frictionless payment, and convenient collection or delivery. It's no wonder retailers are stressed about digital!
Púca's Eileen Carroll spoke about "Apps and Mobility" to a very receptive audience of SME business owners and marketers at the eircom Spiders Digital Workshop on Tuesday 26th May.
Púca has won the 'Mobile Project of the Year' award at the Tech Excellence Awards which were presented last night in the Ballsbridge Hotel, Dublin.
With dwindling attention spans it is essential to grab every opportunity to make an impact, so that “brand in the hand” moment when someone is consuming your product is one of those rare moments where you actually have their full attention.
In the latest of Púca’s “My Mobile Life” interview series we chat with Bill Archer, Managing Director of eircom Business Solutions. Bill joined eircom in early 2014 having previously worked at AT&T since 2000.
