Product/Service Summary

Turaco Mobile's (turacomobile.com) branded Pull and Permission platform GreatBuyz is available to consumers via its website GreatBuyz (https://greatbuyz.com) along with its Shopping IdeaBook blog (https://greatbuyz.com.blog) and GreatBuyz App on Google Play

Unsolicited marketing calls, SMSs and emails are not just a nuisance but an abuse of technology meant for an individual’s convenience. GreatBuyz is a e-marketing eco-system where shoppers can get the right information at the right time, save money and time, and shop non intrusively. Its USP is the Streamz feature which allows users to follow and un-follow brands at the click of a button and in addition a coupon, deals and a gift card aggregator.
