Synergee is an exciting mobile app and web service (still under construction) by the New York based company. The service utilises Big Data to provided merchants with a powerful way to target and engage with hyper-specific audiences, while offering consumers better value and more relevant deals on their purchases.
We worked closely with Synergee since 2011, developing and maintaining their marketing website, mobile application and admin portal web-service.
Like most startups, the Synergee business model evolved over time, as did our role with the company. Our work ranged from website development, to mobile app and even a little game design.
Synergee uses principles from the emerging field of gamification to learn about consumer likes and interests and use this information to provide real-time, hyper-local and relevant offers directly to the consumer.

- Uses geolocation to show relevant data to the user
- Allows users to sign up with Facebook
- Data provided by the system's custom-built API
- Lets users check-in to the places they visit
I have found Katana Code to be very responsive to our needs. They made a point to understand the user's requirements before working on the delivery, using techniques such as mock-ups and even hand drawings. They contributed to our design bringing advanced knowledge of what is happening in the mobile application field. They were able to work overtime in support of dead lines, and their deliverables were well documented. I highly recommend them.
