About Us


Our Mission

We’re on a mission to remove the technology barriers and make access to consumer engagement technology accessible to all retailers. Providing access to the same tools and capability of major players to drive in-store revenue.


We were co-founded in 2017 through the merger of San Francisco based device management specialist Sputnik, Inc. and Sydney, Australia based consumer specialist Lokket. We noticed a growing digital divide in consumer engagement and through as shared vision knew something had to be done.


Whatever your objective, Lokket delivers a cost-effective marketing solution that can stand alone or integrate with traditional marketing channels.
