The commercial real estate services firm’s mobile technology partnership will enhance retail promotions for 21 retail centres across Canada.
TORONTO, July 27, 2020 – Cushman & Wakefield Asset Services has announced a new partnership with Canadian retail platform, GetintheLoop , to support its retailers and customers. The app service is scheduled to launch summer of 2020 at 21 retail centres across Canada.
Through this partnership, more than 1,500 retailers in Cushman & Wakefield properties will receive access to GetintheLoop’s mobile marketing platform to better reach local residents via their smartphones, email, and web. GetintheLoop will act as a single source for accurate and relevant local retail information, integrating data from the app onto each centre’s website, and app users will have the added benefit of receiving push notifications including dynamic offers such as gift card programs, delivery or curbside pick- up options, incentives and offers to support retail businesses now, when they need it most.
“When our guests install the GetintheLoop app on their devices, they will essentially have their local mall in their pockets,” said Molly Westbrook, Cushman & Wakefield’s Executive Managing Director for Canada. “Retail operations and consumer habits are rapidly evolving, and we want to support our retailer partners in this evolution, extending beyond the physical space of our centres. Partnering with GetintheLoop allows us to enhance the guest experience, giving them a direct line on new arrivals, local promotions and sales, and much more.”
Consumers can download GetintheLoop for free in the App Store and Google Play store and opt-in to receive curated, local offers. Push notifications can be enabled or modified so consumers can receive timely updates from their local Cushman & Wakefield-managed shopping centre.
"We're thrilled to partner with an innovative, community-minded organization like Cushman & Wakefield,” said GetintheLoop's Founder and CEO, Matt Crowell. “We want our technology to help communities stay connected and support local retail during this critical time.”
