  • (1888PressRelease) August 18, 2011 - Chicago, IL - Deal Umpire ( and MobManager ( are working together to change the way merchants interact with daily deal sites. The two pro merchant companies plan to simplify the process and maximize benefits for small businesses running deals.

    Deal Umpire is the world's first online marketplace where small businesses and daily-deal sites are able to come together in a transparent auction platform that allows deal sites to bid against one another and win the opportunity to run a merchants deal. The new platform is designed to benefit both merchants and daily-deal sites in a rapidly evolving marketplace.
    MobManager is a software-as-a-service platform that helps answer the question, I've ran a deal but what do I do now? MobManager tracks redemption data and provides revenue analytics to help small businesses maximize benefits and retention during and after they've ran a deal. They currently manage over 100 businesses with over 65,000 deal vouchers under management.

    Together Deal Umpire and MobManager plan to empower businesses by making their lives easier and more profitable during the daily deal lifecycle. Deal Umpire handles the beginning stages by allowing a merchant to review offers, choose the most profitable site and structure a deal that's the right fit for them. MobManager moves in afterwards by managing redemptions, tracking and analyzing performance and providing guidance for maximizing future promotions.

    Deal Umpire CEO Ryan Leavitt explains how the partnership creates value for merchants.

    "As the daily deal industry continues to grow and evolve, we find that merchants are becoming more knowledgeable about what deal sites have to offer and are proceeding with increasing trepidation. Both Deal Umpire and MobManager alleviate some major pain points for merchants and provide specialized services. However, as a team, Deal Umpire and MobManager have the ability to oversee a merchant's entire experience and help them maximize profitability."

    MobManager CEO David Wachtendonk was quoted as saying "I was tired of talking to deal sites that just didn't care about the success of their merchants. After one conversation with Deal Umpire I knew we could create a solution to give merchants a fighting chance to be successful. What Deal Umpire will do is level the playing field for merchants by allowing them to select the deal site that will give them the best offer.

    With two companies working to put the power back in the hands of the merchants in a deal site dominated marketplace, this partnership could be a game changer.
