What we do

Have you ever seen something in a magazine and instantly wanted to buy it, but no info was provided?

Millions of dollars are spent each year in the FASHION INDUSTRY on print advertisements, currently there is no way to track sales related to that ad.

Our system will allow the company to TAGG their product in the media source, and directly link to the product to their site for purchase.

The consumer can easily locate the product they have seen; the retailer gets the sale and the ability to track the success/opportunity on that marketing campaign.
