Dscout is a mobile app that makes it incredibly easy to engage audiences in sharing real-world experiences in realtime. Our participants, "scouts", share their moments (of delight, frustration, unboxing, shopping or anything else) that matter to them, in the form of photos, videos and text. Dscout offers full-service consulting as well as self-service use of the dscout platform. What started as an experiment by Gravitytank, a Chicago-based innovation firm, has spun out into a standalone service in 2011.
Instant information, instant credit, instant connection, instant stuff on my doorstep.
Like interactivity, mobile, and "smart" technologies before it, "instant access" is becoming a consumer expectation, and it's expected to be worth billions.
dscout recently led a study to discover what might happen when people can instantly purchase and receive almost anything in the very moment they most need it. Over four days, we collected 486 of those moments.
