Open Boat Dynamic News Racks offer immediately usable discounts at local points of sale.
Consumers access an ever changing list of locally based discounts transferred directly to a computer chip on a card at the news rack. They also can have discounts downloaded directly from the news rack to their phone.
These discounts are not offered on-line. They are time and locale sensitive, offered only at the news racks nearest the businesses.
Open Boat encourages the spontaneous sale. And news rack centered discounts add to the traditional print media ad marketing pitch. A win-win for consumers and retailers.
Community Give-back: Open Boat uses news racks for multiple purposes- information kiosks, discount downloads and charging stations for cars and, on the sidewalk side of our racks, PDAs and cell phones. Solar paneled above and hot wired below, Open Boat racks limit the need for additional street furniture, providing more space for pedestrians, bicyclists and retailers.
