NEW YORK and PHILADELPHIA, October 26, 2015 – ChargeItSpot (www.chargeitspot.com), the leading provider of secure cell phone charging stations for retail chains, luxury retailers, casinos, hospitals, shopping centers/malls, universities, stadiums and indoor public venues, has selected Feintuch Communications (www.feintuchcommunications.com) to power its integrated trade, business and consumer public relations program.
Founded in 2011 by Douglas Baldasare, a Wharton MBA and passionate entrepreneur, ChargeItSpot addresses a constant and critical need shared by millions of consumers every day – running out of “juice” due to a low battery and no place to charge their phones. ChargeItSpot provides free, secure and easy-to-use charging stations that can charge eight phones at a time.
“ChargeItSpot’s mobile phone charging stations allow retailers and brands to provide a free and delightful service to their customers, while taking advantage of a robust customer engagement platform,” said Douglas Baldasare, founder and CEO, ChargeItSpot. “We selected Feintuch Communications to partner with us on getting the word out to a wider audience about the numerous benefits our charging kiosks provide to businesses and consumers alike. The Feintuch team has a strong background in both retail and sponsorship models, and they have key connections in our targeted industry verticals. We look forward to our partnership with them.”
ChargeItSpot clients include Neiman Marcus, Rite Aid, Nordstrom, Under Armour, Bloomingdale’s, Bergdorf Goodman and Caesars Casinos.
“ChargeItSpot is an example of an entrepreneurial market innovator – the company identified a marketplace need, met with retailers to develop its solution and is now rapidly deploying one of the hottest new retail amenities of the decade,” said Henry Feintuch, president, Feintuch Communications. “In addition to generating good will, retailers have been shown to benefit from the addition of ChargeItSpot kiosks. Research conducted by international market research firm GfK found a 54 percent conversion rate of customers making a purchase while charging their phone, a 115 percent increase in customer in-store dwell time and a 29 percent increase in the value of each transaction.”
The ChargeItSpot PR campaign will be led by Mr. Feintuch, Senior Managing Director Richard Anderson and Account Director Bennie Sham.
Based in Philadelphia, and founded by Wharton graduate Douglas Baldasare, ChargeItSpot creates elegantly designed, fully customizable mobile phone charging kiosks. Built for retail, the stations feature an intuitive, user-friendly touchscreen interface, highly secure locking capability, promotional opportunities, customizable on-screen messages, and robust data tracking and reporting. ChargeItSpot also offers a mobile app that alerts users when their cell phone battery is running low and points them to the nearest ChargeItSpot kiosk. Retail partners include Neiman Marcus, Rite Aid, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Caesars Casinos and others. Visit ChargeItSpot.com for more info or download the mobile app for kiosk locations.
