iPhone App Testers Needed

Nearby Now is rolling out it’s exciting new iPhone app, and we need volunteers to put it to the test!

How it Works:

  • Use the app to update your current location whenever you arrive a job, estimate, delivery, sales call, or even lunch.
  • As you continue to update your location over time, Nearby Now shows potential customers where you are now, and a Heat Map – which effectively illustrates to potential new customers where you frequently work, and that you commonly work in their neighborhood
  • Customers may contact you using integrated click-to-call technology – right from the Nearby Now map.
  • The Nearby Now Power Index shows the top service companies for any area.

Here’s an example of the map in action:


Pretty cool, eh?  Don’t miss this awesome opportunity to help pioneer location-based technology.

Limited Availability

Unfortunately, we only have a few dozen spots open for testers – This is a pre-appstore test, and Apple limits our ability to distribute in test mode, so…

If you are a mobile service professional with an iPhone, and would like to have customers discover your real-time location and view your actual service area heat map, please contact Billy Coover (billy@sidebox.com) or Barry Harkness (barry@sidebox.com) .

What we need to know about you:

  • Which services you provide.  We are planning to allow for practically any market, but since we have a limited space, we’d like to stick to the following services:
    • HVAC contractors & service techs
    • Plumbers

  • How much you work in the field – jobs per week, approximate service area.  You don’t have to have a huge service area, but we’d prefer frequent travel with multiple changing job sites.
  • How much of a techie are you.  We’re not looking for web developers, but it helps if you take pride in your hardware.  The fact that you have an iPhone is a good sign!
