Cudo in the news
Microsoft and PBL launch group buying website, take aim at SME competitors Thursday, 02 September 2010 12:37 Patrick Stafford
New discount website Cudo will aggressively try to win market share and beat out a flood of SMEs trying to build footholds in the coupon and group-buying space, chief executive Billy Tucker says. The site, which is a joint venture between Microsoft and PBL, comes after the recent launch of several coupon and group-buying sites, including OurDeal, Jump On It and Scoopon, who are trying to capitalise on the success of market leader Groupon in the United States. Tucker says the model has been proven to work, and work very quickly, and Cudo will be striving to beat out competitors in a rapidly expanding and popular market. "What I'm seeing from a lot of businesses in this area is that they're in it to make a fast buck. I believe we're in this for the long haul and we want a dominant position in this market. We will evolve our business to be more personalised, and become more tech driven over time."
