An app so you don't get scammed

With the app developed in Santa Fe, you can scan products on the gondolas to check that prices are not inflated.

Una aplicación para que no te estafen

Pedro Prez is an entrepreneur of Reconquista, in northern Santafesino. Together with its partners (today they have a company in Buenos Aires), he developed the Price control, which is already used throughout the country. With it, you can use your cell phone to scan products from the supermarket gondola and detect if they have prices, according to the official list of maximum prices. In affirmative cases, and anonymously, businesses that do not comply can be reported.

Before scanning, the application asks to specify which province of Argentina the user is located, important data since each province has its own priceagreement maximum. Price control is one of those intuitive apps, easy to use and doesn't ask for personal data. It is designed for all ages, does not contain advertising ads and the checks are done in real time, that is, it is updated together with the official price list automatically.

A right of the consumer

With everything going on in 2020, there were many commodity price overruns . Before the coronavirusexplosion, inflationary discontrol was already known. The pandemic made everything worse. There were many consumers who had denounced this reality, which triggered the idea of these entrepreneurs.

Responsible price control is a consumer's right , so the developers of this novel tool promote the idea of citizen control with the slogan “Taking care of your pocket, take care of everyone's”. Finally, they hope that Price Control will be very useful to be able to curb inflation, taking into account the economic situation in the future, starting from the COVID-19.

The application can be downloaded on all operating systems of mobile devices, both on Android and on Iphone, for free and throughout the country.
