Esmeralda runs a local bike shop. She knows a lot of her customers use smartphones with GPS, so she invested in a mobile app that can utilise this technology. She has a couple of ideas how to use the app to engage her customers. Can you remove the ideas that do not need GPS?

(A) Send sales alerts when customers are near the shop

(B) Notify people of promotional events like a free tune-up

(C) Direct customers to Esmeralda’s shop

(D) Send personalised coupons to repeat customers

(E) Let customers schedule appointments for repairs

Explanation

Notifying people of promotional events doesn’t require GPS because she can easily do it with mobile app notifications. GPS is not required for sending personalised coupons to repeat customers because this can be done by sending a mail to their email address. GPS is also not required for customers to schedule appointments for repairs because they can do it by logging into the app and filling out an appointment form or by calling the business.

Sending sales alerts when customers are near the shop requires GPS to track if they are close to the shop and Directing customers to Esmeralda’s shop also requires GPS to show the path from their current location to Esmeralda’s shop.
