CardMobili, creator of the world’s first mobile loyalty and membership cloud that connects consumers directly with brands, has unveiled an important new development for its loyalty smartphone apps, now incorporating coupon and promotional-offer processing. Representing an entirely paper-free channel for the distribution and fulfilment of coupons, the CardMobili apps can handle offers that are delivered via a specific retailer or merchant’s loyalty scheme, as well as those available independently of any loyalty tie-in – such as location-based offers.
The service is specifically designed to deliver attractive, money-saving offers to consumers, with CardMobili’s cloud-based servers continually harvesting data from a wide cross-section of coupon and discount-offer sites. These include 8coupons in the USA, plus BView in the UK, as well as similar sites across Europe. This data is then transmitted to the end-user via the CardMobili app, which can display the coupons on a location-based, “what’s-near-me” geographic basis. Irrespective of a coupon’s source or delivery channel, each is presented to the consumer via their mobile phone with a consistent user experience.
