Pocketglobe – A Startup App That Will Change The Small Business World  – Is Expanding.

Uber for everything could be another title for this article regarding Pocketglobe because of all the included functionality. PG for short is known as the app that is “all your local needs in one app, wherever you are.”

It acts like a Swiss army knife for businesses and their customers. It is a revolutionary tool to help customers find any service quick and more! Which is very useful around the house and when traveling.

PG was built for business since inception after the founder Joseph Whittington had a flat tire in downtown Houston. “The current solutions don’t provide instant access to any service you may need and they don’t always provide the nearest results, which is a big problem.” says, Founder Joseph Whittington.

Kersten Durham, the owner of Tiki Island Carts, says “The Pocketglobe app has been a great tool to reach my loyal customers and new ones. I can notify all of my customers on specials in an instant with no boosting or ad approval needed. Another great thing is that we were added the same day of signing up, we did not have to wait for a postcard in the mail to get online.”

Pocketglobe helps you not only search for anything nearby but most importantly their services. Another great tool they incorporated is PG Pay. It helps businesses bypass the EMV liability shift and charge customers straight to their phone. EMV technology was developed to reduce fraud and creation of counterfeit cards by using a microchip but also has a downside. Any payments taken when not using the EMV Readers will cause the business owner to be liable for the fraud. PG Pay will allow customers to pay while in line, at the table, or on the go.

Another great feature is using the events and notifications tools to keep up with your favorite businesses. Instead of looking for coupons, deals, promotions, or events at different sites PG allows you to find them all attached to the business profile. You can even filter via keyword or category.

Pocketglobe is looking to raise its first round of investment through truCrowd.com. truCrowd is a Texas  crowdfunding portal that allows any Texan to invest in Texas companies. “I’m excited about the opportunity to work with other Texans to make this company successful and a positive force in our local communities. We donate a percent of our earnings from each customer to a non-profit of their choosing. This is one way we can help give back to the ones that need our help the most and inspire others to do so also.” says Joseph Whittington.
