FirstHandle, a new mobile app has been launched. This app seeks to connect a vast audience-base of online and mobile shoppers with merchants. The app makes available more than 5000 offers from 1500 merchants in Delhi NCR. Claimed to be the first of its kind in India, FirstHandle is a free app that alerts the user of bargains and sale offers in his neighborhood eventually benefitting both the user and the merchant. The application offers a highly economical solution for small businesses. The offers are notified to the user by the merchant through the mobile or handset.
The app is designed to reach out to people looking for convenience in shopping offline. The alerts can range from offers for eating out to buying apparel or simply looking for general shopping and entertainment. FirstHandle is not an e-commerce venture but seeks to strengthen and facilitate faster traditional shopping. A highly interactive application, FirstHandle brings spot information about the hottest deals in one’s local proximity, and can be downloaded on all android phones, android tabs, iPhones and iPads. It allows the retailers to deliver timely offers to the customers across a range of categories like food, drinks, apparel, café, salons etc.
Says Gaurav Sinha, CEO, FirstHandle: “The main idea behind launching the app is to ease people’s life by targeting the hyper-local market and reaching out tothe right people with relevant marketing notifications at the right time and via a right platform.”
