The Camrose Booster chose zNewsroom to create a comprehensive app for Camrose, Alberta, Canada that builds on the strengths of their community publication while also creating new opportunities for revenue generation.
Camrose Now! is designed to be utilized by both residents and visitors. It features the places to go, things to do, where to shop, and where to eat in The Rose City. Comprehensive business and residential directories, current weather, as well as local, national and global news and sports are all available.
The app includes interactive submission forms for users to submit free classifieds, pictures/comments relating to local events and enter into giveaways. The flexible format allows the publishers to easily edit the app for seasonal content such as their community holiday festival, and they've utilized the platform loyalty card feature to create unique loyalty card programs for each local business participating in their Camrose Now! Rewards Program.
