BETHESDA, MARYLAND--(Marketwired - Aug. 31, 2015) - Snipp Interactive Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SPN) ("Snipp"), an international provider of marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange, announced a new loyalty program for a leading worldwide education publisher and media company.

This is the first green-field deployment of Snipp's SnippLoyalty solution since the acquisition and integration of the platform earlier this year. The deal is global in scope, with the first deployment happening in Australia and New Zealand, followed subsequently by implementations in the EU, Asia, Canada and the US regions.

According to Snipp's EVP of Loyalty Solutions, Frank Sweeney, "This implementation checks many firsts for us: it is the first truly global program we will be rolling out; it is the first program for us in the education and media space; and it is the first program we have implemented post the acquisition. The integration of receipt processing with loyalty creates a unique solution in the marketplace for multichannel brands. We continue to believe that loyalty will contribute a significant portion of our overall revenues in the future, and already see that a majority of our future pipeline is in loyalty and related solutions."

The term of the deal with this client is three years and the program has already contributed to Snipp's recurring revenue base (in Q2, 2015 the program contributed 8% of revenues). The client is currently utilizing the SnippLoyalty Points Engine and Promotions Modules, but opportunities to further expand the scope also exist.
