Wall, New Jersey – Creative Technology Designs today is pleased to announce the availability of its wide range of inexpensive iOS/Android apps designed to be customized for use by small local businesses. Because the development expense is shared among many businesses, each can afford to have its own custom app for less than the cost of a local newspaper ad. Currently available types of business include: Restaurants, Bars, Clubs, Karate Schools, Fitness Gyms, Hair Salons, Car Dealerships, Retail Stores, Realtors, Car Washes, and Bowling/Pool Hall facilities, with Contractors coming soon. All apps include Coupons, Store Info, Check In, and Push Notifications.

Feature Highlights:
* Creative Technology Designs offers iOS/Android apps customizable for use by local businesses
* Affordable for any business, development costs are shared
* Apps include Coupons, Store Info, Check In, and Push Notifications
* Each app is branded for use by the business
* Business owners can update the content on their app themselves

Everyone in town has a mobile device, but no business in town has its own app. This is a common scenario in most towns and cities because of the high cost of developing apps from scratch. But the features required in their app by a local restaurant are not much different from business to business – only the branding and details change. This is the concept behind the local business apps from CTD, which allow any local business to thrive using the powerful capabilities of apps. Now, even a small, local business can keep in constant communication with their customers easily, conveniently, and inexpensively.

The apps give customers a place to get instant coupons, store info, notification alerts, specials, and the ability to contact businesses by email or phone with one touch. Now, customers do not need to sift through mass mailers, looking for coupons to their favorite small businesses. Customers do not need to search online for store hours, phone numbers, or directions – it is all in the app. And the apps can also award customers with exclusive coupons for liking the business on Facebook or by Checking In. The Small Business suite of apps from CTD has a simple website console, where business owners can update content themselves. It is no longer necessary to depend on others to update your app.

Industry Features
* Restaurant & Bar – Menu Specials, Gallery, Events, Calendar, and Ordering
* Karate School & Fitness Program – Class Schedule, Events Calendar, Programs, and Sign-Up Form
* Salon & Spa – Services and Pricing, Products, Gallery, Staff, and Booking
* Carwash – Services and Pricing, Detailing, and Gallery
* Car Dealership – Inventory, Gallery, Staff, and Forms
* Retail Store – Products, Sales, and Events Calendar

Another major feature is the ability to tie into the company’s Facebook and Twitter feeds, allowing their customers an easy way to like, follow, and read their social feeds right within the company’s app. Businesses can attach barcode and QR code images to the coupons within the app, so when customers come in, they can just open up the app and let the person at the register scan their phone.

“Now small businesses can afford the same tools for keeping in touch with their customers as their largest competitors,” commented Anthony Modico of Creative Technology Designs. “Your customers will love using your app, and you will be able to serve them better than ever.”

Any local business app is available for just a 1-time fee of $350. No monthly or other hidden fees. This includes both iPhone and Android apps, all maintenance, and updates.

Based in Wall, New Jersey, Creative Technology Designs was founded by Anthony Modico and Leon Beyder in 2011. Creative Technology Designs started as a custom application development company. The owner and founder was a big proponent of small businesses and had a strong belief that every small business should own an app. The more the small businesses are connected to the communities, the more business there is, and the more the communities flourish. CTD provides this connection through their apps. Creative Technology Designs created a system where they could hone in and cater to the special features needed in an app for each type of small business, and then replicate and rebrand it at a super low, affordable price for the small business. CTD is still a full software development house that provides custom apps, websites, and Facebook games, but the main focus is getting an app in the hands of every small business.
