Market Authority Releases Updated MyMarket App
The first new feature allows users with a MyMarket profile to organize their selected showrooms into a day-by-day listing, while a second enhancement allows users to share exhibitor selections from their mobile device.
Within an exhibitor listing, a user simply needs to click on the share icon at the top in order to share the profile via email, text message or social media.
“We envision this sharing feature being really useful for teams working together to tackle Market, or for a buyer who came to Market alone but wants to share a great showroom they’ve discovered with the team back home,” said Market Authority President Tom Conley. “With just one simple click, a user can easily send the profile to whomever may need it. If the recipient has the app as well, the profile will open in their app. And if they don’t, the profile will open on our mobile website, quickly sharing pertinent exhibitor details.”
In addition to these new features, the app offers a plethora of other options, such as an exhibitor profile search, the online event calendar, outdoor GPS mapping for all showrooms in the 13-block Market District, indoor mapping for showrooms within select multi-tenant buildings, seamless syncing with the desktop version of MyMarket as well as access to all MyMarket features, and an “About” section with general Market info an attendee may need.
Conley said the indoor mapping feature is available for the International Home Furnishings Center, 220 Elm, Center Point on Hamilton, Center Point on Manning, Center Point on Centennial and Center Point on Russell showroom buildings.
The updated app is available for download in the Apple Store, for use on iPads and iPhones during Fall Market. A user’s guide and comprehensive outline of the app’s features can be found at http://www.highpointmarket.org/tips-and-insights/my-market-app.
Earlier this year, the MyMarket app was named as the winner of the Cool Innovation Blue Diamond Award at the 23rd Annual Blue Diamond Awards held in Charlotte, N.C.
