Ozmott is a mobile platform built to connect retail merchants with consumers through a virtual economy. The application relies on a sustainable deals model that allows consumers to take advantage of in-demand, merchant- supplied offers. Daily deal sites have seen increased growth over the past few years, yet Ozmott is different. Where most sites rely on individual purchases to unlock group deals, Ozmott aims to create a community; where users interact, make friends and gain access to 'Luxe Offers'. By introducing their own brand of virtual currency, or Pips, Ozmott users are encouraged to share deals with their friends to earn additional Pips where they later can be applied toward otherwise out of reach high- end lifestyle products.
