Ouli, the Mobile Personal Concierge App, Partners With Crystal City BID to connect Users with Local Merchants and Events

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 31st 2016

Arlington, VA – March 31, 2016, – Ouli, the new personal concierge app, is excited to announce its partnership with the Crystal City BID. In collaboration with the BID, Ouli has deployed bluetooth beacons throughout the neighborhood that will deliver notifications to users in the area of upcoming Crystal City events and exhibits with a level of personalization that only Ouli can provide.

This new cooperative fits Ouli’s win-win philosophy and is aimed at promoting Crystal City’s growing social, dining, and cultural scene. The Crystal City BID, responsible for promoting the social and economic development of Crystal City, sees the value added by Ouli.

“In today’s mobile economy, the dissemination and reception of information is constantly evolving,” said Angela Fox, President/CEO of the Crystal City (BID). “This creative partnership with Ouli’s mobile concierge app allows us to pilot new ways of connecting the community with all that Crystal City has to offer.”

This partnership is the result of Ouli’s commitment to engaging community organizations. By doing so, Ouli ensures that users are kept in the loop on all the amazing things available in their neighborhood. In addition to the beacons that alert users in the immediate area, interested users in other neighborhoods will now receive suggestions featuring Crystal City events.

Ouli is not a “deal finder” for consumers looking to bargain hunt. It is a mobile concierge app designed to allow users to take full advantage of all of the merchants and events a neighborhood has to offer including special deals and Ouli Exclusive Offers. Ouli is adding new neighborhoods and businesses daily in Northern Virginia and will soon be expanding to DC.
