Charleston, South Carolina residents will be excited to learn about a new way to find local deals through ROXIMITY, an app accessed through the Ford SYNC AppLink feature.
ROXIMITY alerts you to special offers and deal based on your location and preferences. For example, say you’re traveling the streets of Charleston in your new Ford Fusion looking for a place to eat. Through Ford SYNC’s AppLink and Voice Commands, simply say “Restaurants” to find nearby restaurant deals. Presto! Now you’re enjoying a great meal AND saving money!
The app also works for other types of shops including spas and salons, clothing, grocery, auto service and many others.
ROXIMITY was named as the winner of the Ford SYNC App Developer Challenge in 2011. “We chose ROXIMITY’s location-based service because it represents an important consumer trend, and it’s an area we’d like to investigate for potential in-car integration through SYNC,” said Julius Marchwicki, SYNC AppLink™ program manager. “The concept has huge potential as it moves the trend of ‘daily-deal’ finders a level deeper by combining it with more refined location data and context-aware services.”
