Company description

Placecast is the first location-based platform specifically designed to use digital marketing on mobile to drive consumers into physical environments.

Placecast’s ShopAlerts service has transformed the location-based industry, taking home the top prize for innovation given by the National Retail Federation knows as the 2010 RACie award, and demonstrating that mainstream brands like the North Face, Sonic and American Eagle are embracing location-based mobile marketing. Placecast recently launched Match API, a tool that enables providers and developers to refer to a location in any number of ways, and validate that those references resolve to one true location on the planet.  The company recently raised $8 million in Series B funding from Quatrex Capital and existing investors ONSET Ventures, and Voyager Capital.
