)-- Locating members of the Apex Chamber of Commerce is now as easy as pushing a button on your Smartphone, thanks to a new app launched by the Apex Chamber. The Chamber has launched its new MyChamberApp, a Smartphone application used to promote member businesses to other members and the community at large. The application is a free download that gives users access to business locations, listings, and contact information on the go. The application is another added-value to Chamber membership for local businesses, providing additional visibility to generate more business. Members will benefit from potential customers easily accessing their listing, and the general public will be able to shop local and shop Chamber member businesses in good standing through this application.
To download the app, a user simply searches for “myChamberApp” on their Smartphone, downloads the free app, then sets “Apex Chamber of Commerce” as the default chamber.
“The value of membership with the Apex Chamber just increased 100%,” said Paul Levering, Board Member and Membership Committee Chair of the Apex Chamber of Commerce, “This mobile app puts our members’ business information in the palm of customers’ hands when they need it—when they are out and about, ready to buy.”
“The versatility of this app means that anyone looking for goods and services from members of the Apex Chamber of Commerce can easily find the closest business,” said Graham Wilson, Executive Director of the Apex Chamber of Commerce. “It is going to be a valuable tool for anyone who either lives in Apex or does business here.”
In addition to business locations and listings, Chamber members can utilize the application to run specials and hot deals, post events, and keep informed of Chamber happenings.
Apex Chamber President Dave Cozzarelli said, “I'm thankful to Paul Levering and all the volunteer members of the Membership Committee for working so hard to add value to our members. This new app will drive more business into our members’ doors, especially if they take to time to provide ‘Hot Deals’ which is part of the application's capability.
