With the rainy season worsening the traffic situation in the metro and making it more difficult for drivers and commuters alike to travel from one point to another, it might be a good idea to hangout somewhere first to let the rush hour pass.
SM Supermalls, the country’s biggest mall network, recently announced a strategic partnership with Waze (Waze.com)— the world’s largest community-based traffic and navigation app. So aside from getting information from Waze about the most convenient routes to take and traffic advisories, the app can also give drivers a heads up about the nearest SM Mall within the vicinity.
With this partnership, the app can now provide users with real-time relevant information including turn-by-turn directions to nearby SM Supermalls that appear along the driver’s route.
The Waze Philippines map will display SM Supermalls’ branded pins that will give Wazers (people who use Waze) special updates including ongoing mall event and promotions, and 3-Day Sale alerts.
With Waze’s GPS navigation technology, SM shoppers can now swiftly identify the fastest and most efficient map routes. Wazers who are stuck in heavy traffic or road accidents can now save driving time and opt to spend it wisely by going to the nearest SM mall and have a great time dining in or watching movies instead.
