AUSTIN, Texas and CHICAGO, April 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RetailMeNot, Inc. (www.retailmenot.com/corp), the world's largest digital coupon marketplace, today announced it reached a strategic partnership agreement with Chicago-based General Growth Properties, Inc. (NYSE: GGP), a real estate investment trust focused exclusively on owning, managing, leasing and developing best-in-class retail properties throughout the United States. GGP's portfolio includes 120 high-quality malls in 40 states.
RetailMeNot will be the preferred digital coupon provider across GGP malls. GGP owns and manages some of the most popular and unique mall properties in the world, including Ala Moana Center (Honolulu, HI); Tysons Galleria (Washington, D.C.); Staten Island Mall and Bridgewater Commons (NJ/NY Metro Area); Glendale Galleria (Los Angeles, CA); and Water Tower Place (Chicago, IL). The company's properties offer a full-scale shopping experience and serve as entertainment hot spots, offering movie theaters, restaurants, ice skating rinks and numerous family activities.
In addition to traditional marketing, the strategic partnership enables RetailMeNot to test new, in-mall marketing formats that will deliver timely and relevant offers, while helping mall retailers increase foot traffic and store sales. Additionally, RetailMeNot will begin testing beacon technology that can provide its mobile app users with even more dynamic, hyper-targeted offers.
"In 2013, RetailMeNot simultaneously supported consumers' savings needs and retailers' brick-and-mortar sales objectives through in-mall marketing during the holiday shopping season in numerous markets across the U.S. We know in-mall marketing helped RetailMeNot continue to build its brand awareness and introduce a larger segment of U.S. shoppers to RetailMeNot's free coupon app for iPhone and Android users," said Jill Balis, senior vice president, marketing, RetailMeNot, Inc. "Our strategic partnership with GGP will raise RetailMeNot's profile year-round in premier shopping malls where deal seeking consumers are looking for ways to shop smart and save. We believe this partnership will also drive significant value for GGP's tenant retailers who utilize RetailMeNot to increase foot traffic and in-store sales."
By the end of 2013, RetailMeNot's apps had been downloaded globally nearly 14 million times. Inside the United States, RetailMeNot app users receive localized offers when they are in the vicinity of more than 6,000 geo-fenced shopping locations. Additionally, millions of consumers subscribe to RetailMeNot's deal alerts and newsletters that feature in-store offers for top retail stores.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
