Press Release Excerpts:
Multiplied Media Corporation, an award-winning, Calgary-based provider of mobile local search services, has announced the addition of restaurant search for over 880,000 Poynt customers in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom.
Poynt’s restaurant search feature rounds out the already robust business, movie and people search offering, while maintaining its ease of use and outstanding graphical user interface. The section features enhanced restaurant listings and enables users to easily find nearby restaurants, read reviews and book dining reservations. To enhance the user’s experience, icons are displayed when restaurant reviews or dining reservations are available for a restaurant listing.
Once in the restaurant section, Poynt’s customers are offered three ways to search: Restaurants Near Me, Restaurants By Name and Restaurants By Cuisine. Features that users have come to expect such as click-to-call, mapping, driving directions, integration with BlackBerry® Calendar, BlackBerry® Contacts and BlackBerry® Messages are all standard within the new restaurant module. As with the existing sections, all search results are based on the consumer’s location – whether acquired by GPS or cell-site, or manually entered – and are sorted by distance.
