“We’re taking our very popular TeamBuy.ca platform and engaging with our customers wherever it is most convenient to them, whether that means our website, our mobile app or site, and now through our Facebook pages,” explained Jerry Jarosinski, Director of Engagement and Retention for TeamBuy.ca. “This is a win-win proposition for both our customers and merchant partners. Users have ever-changing needs, and engage with brands through mediums that are most convenient for the brands. Here we have the opportunity to take our platform to our customers, wherever they choose to visit.”
TeamBuy.ca claims to be the largest and fastest-growing independently owned Canadian team-buying website. It launched in October 2009 and raised $7 Million from an undisclosed institutional investor in June 2011.
