TORONTO, ON, CANADA – Snipp Interactive Inc. (“Snipp” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: SPN; OTCPK: SNIPF), a global provider of digital marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions, today announced that it has received a three-year US$542,000 minimum value guaranteed contract from a new client, a leading importer for the retail industry (the ‘Customer’). The Customer currently supplies over 12,000 stores in the U.S. and is one of the largest and most respected companies of its kind in the country; well-regarded for its dedication to quality, innovation, service and trust. The program only covers one category of product from the Customers entire catalogue and has the prospect of expanding to other categories of the client’s portfolio of thousands of different products.
The Customer ran a pilot program on Snipp’s market leading SnippCheck platform earlier this year and based on the success of this program elected to sign a long-term contract. Under the terms of the agreement, Snipp will run and manage a receipt-based continuity program, aimed at driving awareness and increasing basket size and frequency of purchase. The program will enable consumers to purchase qualifying brand and partner brand products over multiple transactions to earn retailer specific eGift cards. Snipp will be the one-stop shop solution provider – from receipt validation on SnippCheck, Snipp’s market-leading receipt processing platform, to point management and reward procurement and fulfillment on its Snipp Loyalty and Rewards platform.
“We are very excited to sign a new client based on the effectiveness of another pilot program, a strategy that has yielded considerable success in expanding our growing list of long-term contracts. Each conversion from a test program to a multi-year contract is a validation of the importance of our targeted and impactful solutions for our clients,” said Atul Sabharwal, CEO of Snipp. “This also marks Snipp’s first foray into a new Customer segment. We look forward to developing solutions for an increasingly diverse customer base as new industries and consumer segments discover the value of our products.”
