We have developed a web interface for brick-and-mortar businesses to create flash sales that are displayed to users in an iOS and Android app. Our flash sales, similar to Gilt and Jackthreads, are short duration and offer deep discounts- but serve local businesses rather than eCommerce sites. To understand the input interface and create a flash sale takes our new clients less than a minute on their first exposure to the software. Sales appear as push notifications to our users less than 10 seconds after the client hits the submit button. All sales last less than 24 hours. Each sale displayed in the app is connected to a timer that counts down to their expiration. Users redeem the sales by showing a live timer to the cashier. We have built the app with the intention to primarily serve retailers, restaurants, and venues. The app has different sections for each of these market segments and a main feed showing them all.

We have built the app with the intention to primarily serve retailers, restaurants, and venues. The app has different sections for each of these market segments and a main feed showing them all. The purpose of this is to cure short term sales lulls, get rid of expiring inventory, and generate new 1st-time customers. While promotions and coupons can stimulate sales over a month long cycle, we create short term urgency in our users. Clients can control how long sales last, and exactly how many users receive the sales, giving them a better grip over the anticipated sales rush and associated costs related to the discount.
