Launch of Melton Town’s new FREE mobile phone App

Published Monday, 12th January 2015

We have joined resources with the Melton BID Company to produce a Melton Town Centre App.

The new App aims to maximise visitor potential, increase foot traffic to the high street, increase community engagement and provide shop owners with the tools to benefit from the smartphone revolution. It will also connect local businesses to local consumers using the latest technologies in a way that is simple for everyone. 

The Melton Town Guide App will allow businesses to be found under multiple categories with their own information such as images, text, address, web site, email address, phone numbers, social media and Integrated revenue generating Couponing & Special Offers Systems. It will also provide a "show on map" button that links to maps. With integrated Facebook & Twitter, users can quickly tweet/post their current location or talk about one of the businesses listed on the app. With built in maps, every business can be found using the "show on map button". Or you can just navigate to the map section and filter which items you want to see with the ability to show walking or driving directions from your current location. 

We are hopeful that the Melton App will be a very powerful tool for tourists and locals alike.

Cllr Pam Posnett, Town Centre Champion  said “The Melton Town Guide is a free smart phone application that locals and visitors to the town can use to find shopping information, history guides and every day essential services.    The App allows businesses to promote customers special offers, has a business directory and detailed information of the products and services on offer, boosting business and encouraging trade. Melton Mowbray has a rich history and heritage with a well established business community, so please support your town and spread the word to download this fantastic App”

Andrew Cooper, Chair of the Melton BID Company & Melton Promotions said “This great  free Town Guide contains detailed information and guides on the many unique historical features of the town, interactive searchable maps, retail special offers and A to Z guides all instantly available on a smart phone.   With input from businesses the content can be enriched and expanded, with a regular refresh of available data to consumers”
