With how accessible software has become in recent years, it’s almost mind blowing to me when I discover a shop doesn’t have an app of some sort.
I used to go to this pet store specifically because they sold this brand of food. The pet store itself had a punch-card system where if you bought the same food a certain amount of times in a row, you would get a free bag of food. Whenever I would purchase something at the store, they would pull out a massive portfolio overflowing with papers. They would fish around for my name for a few minutes, until finally they found my specific punch-card. It was primitive. Not to mention I never did get to that free eleventh bag.
Sure, this was acceptable once upon a time. Back when software was hard to create, and phones barely had enough memory to hold a few phone numbers. But we live in a different time now, one where most technology is there for the taking, if you’re willing to grab it.

Templates are the bread and butter of Snappii’s DIY platform. And we have some for almost every occasion. If you’re a retail store that is looking to make things a bit more efficient, check out these templates:
This would have been great for that pet food store I was talking about. The Supermarket template allows you to put your catalog up for sale within the app. Aside from acting as another form of marketing through sending customers exclusive coupons, it also gives customers some additional freedoms that wouldn’t be possible without a mobile app. Customers can pay before-hand and then come pick up their goods when they’re available. Customers can also check if you have an item, and if not, when you will have it.
But most importantly, it gives you a way to communicate with your customers. If a customer notices a problem within the store, the app can act as a way for them to contact the store via a forum. Placing questions in a forum allows others to comment on it, which will give you a sense on the areas that could use work throughout your store.
Just like the last app, this one also benefits as a sort of medium between you and your potential customers. Product Catalogs, however, tend to be more on the informative side rather than the persuasive one. If your a company that sells heavy machinery, for example, the product catalog can offer a clean and accessible way for your sales associates to pull up pictures and details about your products. Just by having an app at all you increase your chances of eyeballs on your brand, so it could be an extremely profitable decision for some business owners.
Most of these apps will be pre-customized so that you can start using them right away. That said, we know a lot of businesses can differ even if they’re in the same sector, so we also give the user access to the app editor so they can customize things themselves.
