Company Summary

Walk into a Target, GAP or Walgreens. Try to use your smartphone to engage with that business. Your smartphone is dumb as a banana. Smartphones should help retail businesses and their customers communicate and do business together. But most businesses have no effective way to create compelling mobile content. Vokl fixes this, delivering value to both businesses and consumers. Businesses pay a monthly fee for the service, including analytics.
