Chamber Adds Mobile App for Members

Local tech firm Sitecrafting has added a new opportunity available to members of the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber. Powered by ChambersEdge, member businesses can market with the smart phone application.

Added Benefits to “going mobile:”

• GPS feature on the app (Map button) allows someone looking for your business to locate you on their phone with either driving or walking directions
• Immediate access to your webpage (if applicable) to find out more about your business
• Call feature (Call button) allows instantaneous access to your business—by automatically dialing your contact number
• Search button (magnifying glass) lets users search for member businesses by company name
• Smart phone users are able to access the Chamber’s mobile membership directory by scanning the QR code as inserted here, to be added to the Chamber's website
• Soon the new membership plaque decal (see left) and our publications will carry the QR code

More value-enhanced features will be added to ChambersEdge in the near future. Those without smart phones can also load the app (if they have web browser capabilities—remember data rates apply) by going to the Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber’s ChambersEdge web address: http://tacoma.chambersedge.com/

Note: IPhones, Droids, Windows phones need to download a free QR screening app first to “scan” the code on the left. Blackberry phone users need to input http://tacoma.chambersedge.com/
