The Mecenat-app reaches one million downloads
Mecenat released their app early and the students realized the usefulness with it early and downloaded it fast. They get their digital Mecenat-card in their phone and access to all student discounts that they use far more than average. According to PostNords e-commerce barometer 25 percent of the consumers made purchases via their phone last year, corresponding number for the Mecenatstudents are 39 percent.
-Students are a group that will take on new techniques early and keep using them if they consider it to work well. We have since launch had a consistently high number of downloads of the Mecenat-app and that is really the best grade you can get from such a particular group, says Jonas Levin, CEO at Mecenat
The app has been praised through out the years. In 2013 it got nominated for App rocket of the year in the competition Gulmobilen. This spring it got an international award for "Knowledge about young people", voted by the 39 european youth organizations that form EYCA, European Youth Card Association.
