Ann Arbor-Ypsi Regional Chamber Rolls Out Upgraded iPhone App

The Ann Arbor-Ypsilanti Regional Chamber Wednesday announced the immediate availability of the upgraded A2YChamber iPhone application to boost the visibility of local businesses.

The A2YChamber iPhone application extends the reach and accessibility of the Chamber’s Member-2-Member Discount Program with an innovative mobile format. The A2YChamber iPhone application now includes an events calendar, blog and news section.

The release of the A2YChamber iPhone application is the development accomplishment of The Whole Brain Group LLC and Arbormoon Software, Inc. in partnership with the chamber. The demo of the upgraded iPhone application, available on the chamber’s Web site, is powered by TorranceLearning’s eClickMap technology, and provides an interactive view and auditory description of the new features of the iPhone application.

Released in conjunction with the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti chambers’ merger, the A2YChamber iPhone application allows businesses to offer new discounts every week, while simultaneously providing users with convenient access to discount information “on the go.” Due to the unique partnership between all four organizations, the A2YChamber iPhone application is now available to the public as a free download from the iTunes App store and a business listing in the M2M directory is a complimentary service provided to chamber members.

The A2YChamber iPhone application features business listings searchable by category, as well as discount details with click-through links to visit the business website, email or dial the business, and view a Google map of the business location. Members may update their discount offers electronically through the Chamber’s Web site, www.a2ychamber.org and the new information will appear weekly as an update on the iPhone.

The A2YChamber iPhone application now features upcoming events including location, speakers and sponsors. The detailed news section increases exposure of chamber members who send news and press releases to the chamber for distribution.

About Mobile Monday - Michigan

Mobile Monday is a global community started in Finland almost a decade ago with over 60 chapters worldwide. The organization works with local and global mobile industry visionaries and developers fostering cooperation and cross-company business development through virtual and live networking events to facilitate idea sharing, best practices development, trends identification, and Mobile Industry growth locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. All Mobile Monday Chapters encourage innovation within the mobile sector and help local companies participate in mobile initiatives through the import and export of visions, concepts, technologies, know-how and best practices. By continuing to present innovative visions, trends, studies and forecasts from the mobile marketplace we facilitate and create partnerships, while contributing to the education of the broader public through publications and an online presence. The Michigan Chapter will execute on these objectives, by delivering a balanced approach of business and technical content. We will look to the Michigan business community for this content, as well as beyond our state in order to make certain the Michigan community is made aware of developments taking place outside our area that can aid their business. We also look to the Michigan community to step up and tell us what we can do to help your business. Submit ideas on content you would like to see presented at Mobile Monday meetings that you believe will be of benefit. We look forward to seeing you there! And Smile. It’s Monday!
