Central Garden & Pet Taps Mobius for Mobile-based Lawn Care at Sam's Club and Select Walmart Locations

Lewis Center, OH (PRWEB) March 4, 2011 - Mobius© Central Garden & Pet is adopting Mobius® image recognition technology to engage mobile Pennington Ultimate Grass Seed consumers and to provide an entirely new level of lawn care information. Consumers can use any camera-enabled mobile phone to snap a picture of the Pennington Ultimate Grass Seed product and send it to grass(at)agm(dot)tw. Mobius will then provide instant access to a free lawn guide, video planting tips, other Central Garden products available, and additional content that is specifically designed for mobile users. The mobile experience was designed by Central Garden's agency, IQ, based in Atlanta, Georgia. IQ crafted the in-store mobile experience to improve purchase rate and consumer satisfaction by increasing the confidence of consumers through delivery of relevant, meaningful and helpful content, all with the snap of a single photo.

The Mobius image recognition program will debut with Pennington Ultimate Grass Seed and feature additional Central Garden & Pet products that are currently available at Sam's Clubs and a select group of Wal-Mart stores. A sticker on each grass seed bag explains how consumers can take advantage of the user-friendly mobile program in 3 easy steps.

"The Mobius image recognition engine is trained to recognize Pennington Ultimate Grass Seed's branded product packaging," said Mobius CEO Aram Kovach. "There is no need to scan meaningless codes or other abstractions. Customers simply snap a picture of the bag and send it, and Mobius immediately returns custom mobile content that helps them get the best results from that particular product. This mobile-based interaction allows opportunities for Central Garden & Pet to continue the consumer relationship with product use reminders, updates and special offers."
