BiGDUG to use mkodo for mobile catalogue ordering Monday 6 August 2007 PDF Print Mkodo has announced that BiGDUG, the number one provider for low cost shelving, is integrating the mkodo Intelligent Mobile Platform (IMP) with its print advertising campaign. Future advertisements from BiGDUG will not only promote specific products, but will also include a text number, which interested parties can SMS to order the company’s complete catalogue. The IMP will manage the correspondence by sending a text that acknowledges the request. It will then move the contact names and numbers into a database so that BiGDUG can manage the mailings. Doug Nourse, BiGDUG’s chief executive, said, “We believe that this campaign will help us by being more efficient. Only those interested will request the catalogue and it will give those companies the immediacy only available to mobile communications.
