WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Nov. 2, 2016) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp" or the "Company") (OTCQX:SNIPF)(TSX VENTURE:SPN), a global provider of digital marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions, has expanded its loyalty product offering with the launch of SnippLoyalty Base; a low-cost, loyalty-in-a-box solution tailor-made for consumer packaged goods (CPG) and multichannel brands. The new product is an entry-level loyalty platform that includes Snipp's market-leading receipt processing capabilities and world-class rewards solution and will allow CPG brands to migrate from running a single promotion at a time to running a continuous loyalty program, supporting multiple promotions over time.

"To date, the loyalty market has been confined to traditional sectors, such as airlines or retail, and has largely been inaccessible to consumer brands due to huge implementation requirements and service costs. Because consumer brands do not own the point of sale, they are currently forced to print unique codes on their packaging, a very expensive and inefficient solution that has made loyalty programs impossible for many brands," said Atul Sabharwal, CEO of Snipp.

"With SnippLoyalty Base, we've eliminated those barriers and CPG brands can finally establish deep and meaningful relationships with their consumers while driving sales and ROI over the long run. Because the platform uses the same technology that has been used to power thousands of consumer promotions, it is possible for a brand to seamlessly and cost-effectively transition from a single promotion to ongoing loyalty program."

SnippLoyalty Base is a significant disruptor in the marketplace, providing a robust set of enterprise features at a very attractive price point. Key attributes of this new product include:

  • It is the first platform of its kind purpose-built for CPG and other multi-channel brands
  • Setup cost of less than USD $45K and a total annual cost of under USD $100K for the baseline version, the least expensive solution ever introduced in this space
  • Highly configurable out of the box, with setup time of weeks instead of months
  • Built atop an enterprise platform that can scale as programs grow
  • Entire solution is in-house with no third-party components
    • Pre-integrated with SnippCheck, Snipp's industry-leading solution for purchase verification via receipt instead of codes on pack
    • Pre-integrated with SnippRewards, Snipp's digital rewards solution
  • Rewards social and engagement activities as well as transactions
  • Built for mobile, with a customized app available

"SnippLoyalty Base is an important product for our company and the industry, because it allows brands to test and experience the advantages of loyalty programs for the first time, while being inexpensive and comprehensive in terms of features," said Atul Sabharwal.
