With local businesses and high-streets facing enormous challenges caused by COVID-19, we believe the opportunity for businesses and users to connect with each other and build meaningful relationships has never been as important. Below are our answers to the most asked questions involving how the Roam app is transforming shopping, ordering and more, through the power of interaction and providing businesses with digital solutions.
Is Roam free for consumers and businesses?
YES! Roam is free for consumers to download, on both iOS or Android devices, and it is also free for businesses to claim and manage their listings.
Supporting our local high streets and businesses is an important value of ours, especially for bricks-and-mortar businesses, such as shops, cafes, bars and cultural venues. We are proud to provide them with an easy to use platform, where they can tailor their listings with images and other information to show themselves off in the most effective way and engage with customers.
Roam also provides businesses with four free push notifications each month. Through push notifications, the app lets the businesses communicate directly to their customers any news, offers, events or loyalty rewards that they have available. Businesses can purchase affordable bundles of extra notifications if they wish to communicate with their customers more frequently.
