A new app ~ beDJ ~ Only in Austin

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors CBURE#0406046

This time a quintet of UT students founded another young Austin based company called Symplexum LLC. They have developed a smartphone application designed to connect to venues with visitors via music criticism. The app is called beDJ and it is intended to give users a method of rating music in public spaces while providing the owners of such venues with customer analytics.

This sounds like a natural for Austin, Texas ..the live music capital!

This app is aimed at the vendors (bars, stores, restaurants etc. ) to provide something to engage the customer! If the venue can entice the customer to vote on the music playing at the venue they can in turn  respond back beginning a dialogue and thanking them for voting and is there anything else they can do for them? In other words they can connect with the customer, thank them for coming in and establish a continuing relationship.

Okay so how are they going to make money offering a platform to give feedback on music? They will generate revenue by charging commercial customers such as retailers for the application and an additional fee for the customer data it can generate. The trick will be to convince the venues to adopt something new to engage the customer!

A beta tester in Austin is the Arab Cowboy and Austin café and hookah lounge  http://arabcowboy.com/ . After implementing the beDJ application they find they are using it more to ignite customer involvement in music selections..not a bad thing!

Austin sparks many startups! The creative wheels are always churning. Looking for this environment to live work and play in? Then consider Austin, Texas as your new town!

Wow, it sounds like is is similar to the old Juke boxes where you could put in your quarter and get any song you want played in the joint, but with a smartphone twist.

Dorie: Very interesting! I think it is amazing how much we can do with our phone these days! I said to a Verizon rep the other day "I wonder where we will be in just two years" he said "holographs"... I bet he is right! Thanks for the info!

Dorie, I bet it's targeted to the teens and young adults. They seem to know how to do ANYTHING with their phones. On a trip to the cty with my daughter yesterday, she pulled up subway maps and places to eat with no effort!

This is interesting, Dorie.  I would love to take the app to my gym and complain bitterly about the rap and hip hop they keep playing :)
