open2save.in a retail aggregator of deals and discounts which we have covered earlier here has announced a tie up with Zook a mobile answer engine of Ziva Software which is funded by Ojas Ventures whose Managing Partner Mr.Rajesh Srivastha was interviewed by WATShow recently.
open2save which started in January 2007 and based out of Bangalore now aggregates deals and discounts available in the retail market with over 1,500 retailers across Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi, Pune, Chennai, Mysore and Lucknow. This tie up with Zook will allow open2save to take these deals on mobile via zook’s mobile answer engine.
On the occassion of the partnership, Vaibhav Tewari, CEO, AeNwis (The company which owns open2save), said, “We want our consumers to get the best deals anytime, anywhere on anything
they want. And our partnership with Zook will add a very fast growing and promising mobile channel for them. With this, they can get our deals at their preferred place and time. We expect that our consumers
will benefit significantly with this service. Over a period of time we also plan to include mobile coupons, deal alert services and other extensions”.
So how does this work on a mobile?
A user needs to log on to zook.in from his/her mobile browser and search for what he is looking for. Once the user finds a deal of interest, they can just click on “Call Me” and get connected automatically from their mobile to open2save Deal Experts. This service is available on any internet enabled phone, and works on any browser on the mobile phone. Users may also subscribe to similar deals by signing up for deals alerts. Both companies expect this partnership to launch mobile coupons, deal alert services and other extensions from this foundation in the next 12-18 months.
