Dr. Klaus Mapara, CEO at seeker comments,“seeker offers businesses the opportunity to become a ‘brand in the hand’ of its customers, with the free basic listing including a business’ address, telephone number/s and opening hours. The seeker app will make it easier than ever before for customers to find a business while they are out and about. Research* shows that 95 per cent of smartphone users look for local information while on the go, 77 per cent of those users contacted the business either visiting the store or calling it and almost half of those went on to make a purchase.”

The seeker directory is built from databases licensed by different content providers including BT Residential and DA Services, adhering to strict data and information policies.

Mapara explains,“All of the details we hold are checked for accuracy and opt-in consent by our UK call centre and/or via email directly with the business.”

The basic account listing for businesses is free, with an upgraded profile (seeker plus) that can include images, services, pricing etc., available for those businesses interested in increasing visibility and conversion.

Mapara adds,“For users in London, the app will also contain up-to-date information on Barclays Bicycle Hire, which is updated directly from the Transport for London (TfL) website every three minutes. At the click of a button, users will be able to see where their nearest Barclays bike station is, how many bikes are available to hire and how many stations are free if they are returning a bike.”

“The seeker app also contains information on the upcoming London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, including venues, what sports are being played where and direct links to official websites to learn more,” concludes Mapara.
