After last year’s WAP “Find Nearest” service, Orange is launching an SMS version, powered by Webraska Mobile Technologies, which allows customers to use SMS messages to locate businesses or services.
Subscribers send a one-word request via SMS, such as ‘PUB’, and the service returns the name of the nearest pub.
Furthermore, customers can text ‘N’ for the next nearest search, or text ‘L’ to get a longer list of results. Directions are also available for the cost of an additional search.
And if subscribers are looking for their own location, the service can text back their location!
Each search costs €0.30.
Via DM Europe.
