The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2016-05-11T03:15:20Z Free Puppuccino anyone? Liven + Sensory Lab is bringing this to the Million Paws Walk 2016! 2016-05-11T03:15:20Z free-puppuccino-anyone-liven-sensory-lab-is-bringing-this-to-the-million-paws-walk-2016 Liven is excited to announce their official partnership with the RSPCA Million Paws Walk, to be held this Sunday the 15th of May at Albert Park Lake. The Million Paws Walk will attract more than 40,000 Melbournians and over 250,000 animal lovers nationally, in an effort to raise money and awareness for the RSPCA. Together with their friends from Sensory Lab, Liven will be serving killer coffees for both two-legged and four-legged event attendees. Be sure to collect a coffee for yourself and a free ‘puppuccino’ for your pooch, as 25% of the proceeds of all coffee sales will be donated to the RSPCA. In further support of the Million Paws Walk, Liven have reduced their Premium Membership from $29.95 to just $9.95 for the entire month of May, with all proceeds from membership purchases going to the RSPCA. This ensures that Melbournians can continue to support the RSPCA throughout the year simply by dining out at their favourite restaurants. To take advantage of this great offer and to help fight animal cruelty, visit the site. Liven is a revolutionary mobile app that provides members with exclusive discount offers at top-notch restaurants. What really sets it apart is its Save & Donate feature, which allows users to share their savings (all or in part) with a variety of charities (such as the RSPCA), directly via the app. The team from Liven will be at Albert Park on the day, along with coffee king Salvatore Malatesta, owner of the St Ali family, and the crew from Sensory Lab serving up some great coffee.

This is what has Liven co-founder David Ballerini so excited as the company announces its partnership with industry leader, Secure Parking, which will see all Liven members receive free parking in CBD Melbourne. Liven and Secure Parking offer completely different products, but both share one thing in common - technology employed to increase convenience and ease of use. There's nothing worse than having to drive several blocks away from your destination because you can't find a park on the street nearby. With Secure Parking's Secure-a-Spot online booking service, drivers have no more parking worries, as they can easily book a spot online then enter and exit the car park easily with no need for tickets or searching for the machine to pay. One of the main reasons Liven has partnered with Secure Parking is the unique, complementary experience the two companies can offer to their customers. Liven users already enjoy incredible discounts of anywhere from 25% to 50% off the total bill from some of the best dining spots and entertainment venues in Melbourne, and now Secure is offering Liven users free parking through their Secure-a-spot service, allowing them to enjoy a night in the town without having to scour the streets for a space. As a Liven user, you don't need to prepay or "buy" any deal, or make a booking well in advance to claim an offer. There is no 'minimum spending' requirement either. You simply walk into a restaurant of your choice, order and enjoy your meal, and show your phone when paying the bill to get the discount. So you have the complete freedom as to when, where, what and how you want to enjoy your meal. Melbourne is a cosmopolitan city famous for its vibrant foodie scene and high quality restaurants, it is such a shame to spend a date night at a mediocre local venue when the wonders of the CBD are just a stone's throw away! Now that you can secure a park for free and get a great deal on your meal, there really is no excuse not to spend an unforgettable evening in the city! The number of vouchers is limited, so anyone who wants to park free needs to download the Liven app without delay. The voucher is for evening (from 4pm) and weekend (all day) parking, making it perfect for a trip to the city for a night out! New Liven members can use their first two offers for free, meaning they can also use an additional voucher at one of Liven's restaurant partners, meaning they can save on their meal while parking free!

Melbourne Food and Entertainment App passes 30,000 users 2015-03-26T01:45:45Z melbourne-food-and-entertainment-app-passes-30-000-users Melburnians love of food and a good deal has helped the Liven Food and Entertainment app to grow to 30,000 users since launching in June last year. “We launched our beta app in June and the rapid growth has shown we are onto something.” said Patrick Gaskin from Liven. Since launch, Liven has added over 190 well reputed restaurants and service providers from across Melbourne to the platform.  “Liven users have already saved over $750,000 on food and entertainment while using the app, which is fantastic” says Gaskin. Really enthusiastic word of mouth from our user base and the addition of more and more great merchants is helping Liven grow their user base by 25 to 30% each month.  “As a young start-up we are delighted to see the response and validation from users.  The ongoing growth is giving us lots of confidence about where we can get to” said Gaskin.  “On average, customers save $60 from their first two uses of the app.” The Liven app is easy to use and allows customers to enjoy their meal or activity without pre-booking or compromising their experience in any way.  “Our app is all about ease of use and an uncompromised experience for busy people” says Gaskin.  “Group discounts require you to wait for a good deal to come along and then you may have to go at a time that doesn’t suit you.  Similarly, old school voucher offers only work if you remember to have them with you when you are out and about.” “Because we’re an app, Liven is always with you, ready to be used” says Gaskin. "The entitlement is always right in your pocket."    When the user comes to pay, they simply redeem the discount on the app and present it when they pay.  Discounts range from 25% to 50%.  Initial use of the app is free, but customers can subscribe and get ongoing access to over $5000 worth of discounts throughout the year. The number of vendors on Liven has grown by 25% in the past two months and the plan is to have more than 250 merchants in Melbourne within the next three months.  “Initially it was quite difficult to convince vendors to be on a platform with no users, but as users have increased and redemptions increased it has gotten easier and easier to convince merchants to come on board” says Gaskin.  “Now merchants are approaching us, which is great.  But we are still really selective about who we have on board.  They need to have a proven track record of quality on review sites like Urbanspoon.” Liven believes that the app is a win-win proposition for users and merchants.  Users get discounts and merchants get more customers.  “The Liven app is really top notch and the technology is very simple to use for the staff” said Paul Belette from Cafe Republic. “But what I like about Liven most is the way they really focus on promoting my restaurant as a brand, not as a deal.  Liven is a great marketing method for brand exposure & recognition.” “One of the most repeated comments about our app, aside from ease of use, is that it has great deals from highly sort after businesses.  That is quite unique and by design.” said Gaskin.   “As a freemium model we need to ensure it offers great value and benefits for our users.  And the success with our existing merchants is helping open the door to more innovative projects and partnerships we are working on.” Liven was started in Melbourne, but the young team are already looking at expanding into other east coast cities and overseas.  “We are hoping to become another great Melbourne startup success story” said Gaskin.
