)-- Leading the effort in grocery mobile couponing, Pushpins Inc. today announced that it has launched a comprehensive UPC database of categorized grocery products. All products are fully searchable by UPC, product name, manufacturer, size, unit, and categorized in a three-tiered system that maps to grocery store aisles.
“While building Pushpins, we found there is tremendous value in having a categorized database of all grocery products linked to their UPC codes. With more and more mobile and web applications taking advantage of barcode scanning technology a comprehensive database is essential to build a compelling product,” said Jason Gurwin, CEO of Pushpins Inc. “We are excited to offer this new service to help companies easily integrate UPC lookup capabilities into their smartphone applications or point of sale systems.”
The database will allow smartphone and web 2.0 developers to integrate UPC lookup tied to rich product information at affordable prices. Additionally, it will allow grocery and convenience stores to quickly update their point of sale systems speeding up time to “go live.” Pushpins will make the grocery UPC database available immediately on UPCGrocery.com.
Pushpins is the first viral and competitive mobile couponing platform that pushes coupons to consumers as they browse and scan products in grocery and retail settings. The Pushpins mobile application allows customers to walk into a store, scan the barcode of a product and find targeted and flexible coupons called Pushpins. When redeemed, Pushpins are linked directly to their store loyalty cards and will be credited to the shopper when they checkout. Founded in 2010 and privately held, Pushpins based in Menlo Park, CA.
