More than half of all local searches are done via mobile device, according to Digital Buzz. The North Country Connect app provides users with a quicker option to search local businesses, get directions, contact information, or learn more about them.
“With this app local businesses are directly connected with new customers,” said Jody Parks, Executive VP of the North Country Chamber of Commerce. “North Country Connect is a must have for anyone who lives, works or visits the area. It is an easy and convenient tool to find a business or explore our region.”
With the app, any user can search for a business by name or category. Each business has a profile page which offers one click calling or website options and directions to the business. Businesses can also be added to a users list of favorites and can be shared through email, Facebook and Twitter.
“La Quinta Inns & Suites is thrilled to be a part of the North Country Connect App,” said Vicki Giroux, General Manager. “We know that mobile apps are changing the way people interact with their community. Through the app’s easy to use design, visitors and locals can find our business and explore all the region has to offer.”
Through the app’s easy to use design, visitors and area residents have instant access to area businesses. Along with the Business Directories, Calendars, Trip Planners and Regional Info on goadirondack.com and northcountrychamber.com, this app adds yet another way for residents and visitors to access the North Country.
