Mobile app suggests alternate local businesses to callers in case of no answer and identifies unknown callers
Vienna, Ljubljana 5 March 2012 – PIRS and adaffix announce the launch of the award winning mobile application adaffix (www.adaffix.com) in Slovenia today. The application instantly suggests local alternatives if the user cannot reach a business on the phone. To deliver this information adaffix accesses the most comprehensive Slovenian business directory of PIRS (www.pirs.si).
The “AutoSuggest” feature makes it easier for a caller to get in touch with a business. For instance, a user calls the number of a plumber in Ljubljana but the company is unavailable to take the call. Within seconds adaffix shows the user other plumbers nearby. Another call is initiated by simply pushing a button. The contact details of companies can be added easily to the contacts list on the mobile phone.
The “Caller Lookup” feature identifies the number of an incoming call that is not in the user’s contacts list by matching it with the PIRS database. The name of the caller is displayed as the phone rings. When the user misses a call the name and time of the call are displayed. With one push of a button callback is easy and immediate, as is adding the caller’s name and number to the phone contacts list.
For the user’s comfort, adaffix runs in the background of the smartphone, only displaying content when appropriate. The user never has to act, only react. Additional features include call blocker, contact synchronization and Facebook ID, which displays the photo and realtime status of Facebook friends when they call. The adaffix application runs on smartphones supporting the operating systems Android and BlackBerry RIM and Nokia Symbian S60.
“Partnering with adaffix is a significant step for the fast growing smartphone market in Slovenia” says Dušan Podrekar, managing director of Pirs. “The adaffix app will certainly connect consumers with business in very effective way. ”
“We are delighted to partner with PIRS and add Slovenia to our international caller lookup network. Slovenia’s mobile penetration rate is over 100% and 28% of users already have a smartphone. The cooperation with PIRS will provide adaffix users with the most comprehensive Slovene business content.” , explains Claudia Dreier-Poepperl, founder and CEO adaffix.
