Rate and review your lifestyle on HereNow!

Trudon (Pty) Ltd is proud to announce the launch of its new platform: HereNow. HereNow is owned by Trudon and lets users review and rate local lifestyle venues and service providers.
This will give users the opportunity to share their opinions on lifestyle places they visit or the services that they use. Not only will users be able to "rant and rave" about their favourite restaurants, bars, shopping venues, places of interest and other events nationwide, but they'll also be able to view feedback from other users about their experiences.

HereNow aims to empower South Africans to make an informed decision regarding lifestyle venues and service providers.

Focusing on user experience, HereNow can truly be used by anyone and offers benefits to people with a wide range of interests. What are people saying about a local restaurant? Going pub-hopping this weekend? Check what others are saying and rating nightlife spots in your area.

Whether you want to eat, shop or play at your favourite local dining, shopping or entertainment venue, are looking for a quality service in your area or frequently travel to events nationwide, HereNow is for you.

Just discovered a new venue or hotspot in your area and you want to share your experience with others, HereNow gives you the opportunity to rate, upload the business venue and even upload a picture of the venue in real-time. Let people know that you were HereNow at your local hotspot!

Not sure what to do this weekend? Find event information and maps to the venue; all this freely available on HereNow.

Keeping up with social media trends, HereNow integrates the Facebook connect option. This makes logging in extremely easy for users to access the platform, meaning that they don't have to remember yet another login password. Furthermore, the platform itself functions as a "mini social network" that allows people to connect with like-minded individuals.

Rating and reviewing your favourite hotspot is also made easy with mobile which allows you to review while you are on the move.

Chris Deeks (General Manager: On-line for Trudon) says, "Trudon is excited about this new venture because it'll give South Africans the opportunity to eat, shop and play using information that is local, current and personalised to them, and they will be able to share it with their social networks."
