– one of Getsocio customers
Getsocio lives a social life.
Not only the company itself has profiles in the most popular social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Pinterest, but also all the websites created with Getsocio platform can be easily connected with any of these networks.
When daily deal websites were at the peak of their popularity (e.g. Groupon, etc.), Anadea received multiple requests from customers to build daily deal websites.
After we mastered this area, it was decided to develop a platform that would allow anybody to create a group buying website in a couple of minutes. This was the starting point for Getsocio. The most essential features were included in the first release in March 2010; a significant date in Getsocio history.
Since then, we continue developing Getsocio and put all efforts to improve our product. Today Getsocio is a mature SaaS product with everything companies need to build an eCommerce website or app with ease.
We are excited to hear your idea and we are always open to discuss it! Tell us a bit more about you and the project you have in mind.
Send us your request for proposal, and we'll reply with the estimate.
More Than Just a Solution
Despite that Getsocio is quite a young service, it has become popular and gained confidence among its customers. This is proved by multiple sites registered on our platform a while ago and still providing cool deals to their customers.
Some of these sites are local-oriented and provide deals in a certain area, some of them offer national deals of a certain category, others sell deals to a particular audience.
This means that Anadea company has developed multi-purpose sophisticated software which has been well promoted and successfully launched to the market.
