Visionstate Inc. Releases the Official South Edmonton Common iPhone Application

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 22, 2010) - Visionstate Inc. (a division of CSM Systems Corp. (TSX VENTURE:CKX)) is pleased to announce the release of the official South Edmonton Common iPhone application. This mobile directory application is the first of its kind for an outdoor retail power centre in Canada. The application is now available for download in the iTunes App Store (search: South Edmonton Common).

South Edmonton Common is the largest outdoor retail power centre in North America. The centre faced challenges when considering wayfinding methods, and expressed an interest in an iPhone application as a preliminary alternative to on-site wayfinding signage.

With many great features including:

  • Complete store listing: find stores alphabetically or by category.
  • Keyword Search: find brands, products, specialty items, etc.
  • 3D map: with color coded zones and multi-touch to help you find the store you are looking for
  • Sales & Jobs listing- Find out which stores have sales, see if any stores are hiring!
  • Store Descriptions, including hours of operation
  • Call stores with the one-touch-dial feature and view store websites

Even more great features, such as animated directions between stores and a traffic 'best route' indicator, are coming soon! Visionstate plans to roll out the South Edmonton Common app for use on additional handsets, such as Android and Blackberry over the next year.

"Throughout the entire process of creating our mobile app for South Edmonton Common, the people at Visionstate were thorough, professional, and most of all, enthusiastic. With South Edmonton Common being a considerably large, outdoor, power centre, this was a bit of a different animal for the group, but they tackled all obstacles head-on, creating a very usable, effective, and attractive application. It's a great tool, and we're excited about the potential improvements as Visionstate's technology grows, which is a testament to their creative abilities." -- Tony Rota, Marketing Director for South Edmonton Common --
