Changing the way people shop
Founded in 2012, Beam is already set on becoming a key player in the mobile commerce space in the MENA region. The app utilises Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) Beacon technology, a first in the region, which allows customers to pay, record and manage their spending on their smartphone.
Acting as a digital wallet, Beam radically changes the way consumers pay by not only allowing them to pay with a simple tap of their phone, but to also earn and redeem points and enjoy tailored offers and promotions.
More than 100,000 users have already signed up to the app, and are using it at over 1,200 outlets in the UAE, including Carrefour, Subway, Costa Coffee, Aldo, and Yo! Sushi, to name but a few.
