RADIO EXPRESS will now exclusively market and sell JACAPPS-branded radio station mobile applications to radio stations around the globe. This expands an agreement that RADIO EXPRESS signed with JACAPPS in JUNE to market and sell the all new V4 platform to radio stations across LATIN AMERICA and AFRICA.
JACAPPS provides stations with their own branded app on smartphones and other mobile devices at an affordable price. The apps give stations more than a stream, with integrated social media that allows listeners to see the station’s social stream and interact without ever leaving the app and on-demand content, and deliver a cost-effective solution for stations to get their brands and products onto the mobile devices of millions of consumers and engage their audiences wherever they are.
“RADIO EXPRESS’ global network of established relationships with radio stations across six continents, paired with JACAPPS’ customizable apps developed especially for radio stations, will enable stations around the world to affordably have their own branded station apps that engage their listeners and differentiate themselves with audiences," RADIO EXPRESS Pres./CEO BARBARA ROUNDS said. "It also frees them from any ties to aggregated apps, where their brand is lost in a sea of stations -- and it puts them front and center with their listeners in a meaningful way that maximizes the tremendous social engagement of radio. We are thrilled to take jacapps’ branded station apps to markets around the globe and believe this will be a real game-changer for stations.”
“RADIO EXPRESS hit the ground running, and has kept our development team busy," JACAPPS Pres. PAUL JACOBS said. "There is pent-up demand for quality mobile applications worldwide, and the combination of our app platform and RADIO EXPRESS’ reputation and relationships makes this decision to expand our relationship a no-brainer.”
