Snipp Announces A 3-Year, 6-Figure Loyalty Contract Extension With A Major European Utility Company
June 27, 2016 (Source) — Snipp Interactive Inc. (“Snipp”) (TSX VENTURE:SPN)(OTCQX:SNIPF), an international provider of marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions listed on the OTCQX and the TSX Venture Exchange, is pleased to announce that it has extended its loyalty contract with a leading European utility corporation for a term of 3 years with additional functionality on Snipp’s enhanced loyalty platform. The company supplies utilities to approximately 1.2 million households and 100,000 businesses within a single country, and is a subsidiary of an international energy corporation with active operations in over 20 countries. Sales will be recognized incrementally over the life of this contract, adding to our growing stream of recurring revenue.
“Snipp is thrilled to be the loyalty partner for this large European utility company. As we expand across Europe, we are confident that the SnippLoyalty platform will continue to deliver convenient, competitive and innovative long-term loyalty solutions that foster brand affinity by helping consumers turn everyday actions, such as shopping at a grocery store or paying a utility bill, into opportunities to save money and earn valuable rewards. This is the latest example of what we believe is a sustainable trend toward longer-term contracts as customers realize the ongoing value of our programs,” says David Hargreaves, Chief Client Officer at Snipp.
This comprehensive loyalty program combines rewards and sweepstakes to offer customers greater convenience and exclusive benefits. Members can earn points simply by paying their utility bill, and these points can be used to redeem a host of rewards, such as hotel bookings, books, food and apparel. One unique element of this particular program is that shoppers who make a qualifying purchase at a major supermarket chain are rewarded with a discount on their utility bill – thereby marking a cross-sector collaboration. This wide-ranging loyalty program also features a sweepstakes whereby members can enter for a chance to win a trip for 2 to the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
