AmericasMart launches mobile app
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, January 8, 2014
Atlanta -- AmericasMart Atlanta introduced a new mobile market app, launching in time for the Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market this week.
The app is designed to make it easier for buyers to find new and existing exhibitors, categories, lines and products, and to make note of market events and promotions.
Buyers can browse exhibitors by floor map or listings, and can record favorite lines and categories, and organize market details. Functionality enhancements will emerge over the next year as the mobile app expands in scope and scale.
The introduction follows more than two years of research and design to create a digital environment scaled to the needs and demands of buyers and sellers doing business daily, and across the 14 annual markets staged within AmericasMart's 7.1 million-square-foot campus.
"The transformative power of this app is limited only by the boundaries of technology, which in our execution is virtually limitless," said Jeffrey L. Portman, Sr., president and chief operating officer. "This elevates the experience of doing business here to a level of unfathomable convenience and efficiency," Portman added.
The app is now available in the Apple App Store and Google Play.
