Zukaz’s success is defined by its merits and by the marketplace of today. An important factor is also the execution and performance of the Zukaz and ZukazBiz apps in the marketplace and to the public. They are the face of the business to the public, and also the initiative that Zukaz is dependent on for success in its industry. The Zukaz app is a free, location-based augmented reality app, that allows merchants to drop real cash vouchers right into the path of customers. The initiative of Zukaz is actually the ZukazBiz app and its ability to capitalise on direct to consumer marketing using Augmented Reality as a medium.
