RGV Hound, the Rio Grande Valley's best online business directory for Roma, Rio Grande City, La Grulla, Sullivan City, La Joya, Peñitas, Palmview, Mission, McAllen, Edinburg, Pharr, San Juan, and Donna, TX, launches its new website today. RGV Hound now boasts more features than just listings; it features events, classifieds, articles, and promotions.
People coming into the directory belong to one of the following three groups: visitors, users, and sponsors.
Visitors are people who are just browsing listings, events, classifieds, articles, and promotions. They have access to all the public information, and are restricted only by their ability to review, comment, or create items.
Users have the same abilities as visitors with a few added functionalities. Directory users have a user portal where they can see their favorited items. They can then choose to make their profile public and share it with someone. Also, users can review and comment on items.
Sponsors (advertisers) are the people or businesses who actually create new items. Sponsors now have a centralized sponsor portal where they can see all their listings, events, classifieds, articles and promotions in one place. They can easily manage their listings, events, classifieds, articles, promotions, and even payments through this portal.
A mobile app is currently under development. The app will be both for iOS and Android. Also, it will be free and featured in both the App Store (iOS) and the Play Store (Android). The mobile app will have very similar functionality to the website, but will be enhanced to be viewed best as a native iOS and Android app. One of its most exciting features will be a map selection feature where a user will draw an area to search and will then be given the listings within that search area.
We now have an SSL Server Certificate which makes the website more secure than ever. You can rest assured that your information will be kept confidential and secure.
