Mobile Technology LOOPING(TM) Transforms the Loyalty Program LifestyleLOOPING(TM) Redefines the Future of Mobile Loyalty Programs for Small Businesses and Agencies of All Sizes (September 12, 2011)
SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/13/11 -- LOOPING launched a revolutionary new mobile technology today at the DEMO Fall 2011 Conference. LOOPING is the only solution on the market to connect customers, businesses, and the loyalty program lifestyle with a simple, green, 100% paperless solution.
LOOPING is a unique sound loop mobile technology that identifies and authenticates parties in proximity. This disruptive technology works via a patent-pending technology that differentiates it from existing contactless technologies on the market today.
"A mobile loyalty program is a useful tool for businesses, but until now has been restricted to physical cards or only smartphone users with cameras and installing applications with scanning capabilities," said Dani Alyamour, founder of LOOPING. "Today LOOPING is introducing technology that will allow ALL mobile phone users on any network to join mobile loyalty programs, while also providing business owners with a very powerful rules engine to maximize loyalty benefits, and increase earnings."
Decked out with all of the bells and whistles of a flexible rules engine, LOOPING offers businesses an affordable hosted solution to be in control of a simple yet sophisticated loyalty program on a smartphone or tablet. LOOPING provides simple to use analytics that turn anonymous sales into useful data in order to act on the information in real time. Eventually, the technology will get into mobile payments.
With a quick and free phone call, LOOPING addresses the key concerns of existing mobile loyalty programs as well as all traditional plastic or paper card-based systems. No more plastic or paper. No more costly data plans. No NFC. No GPS required. No need to print and scan QR Codes on a smartphone; LOOPING works with any mobile phone, on any network, for all customers from Day One.
"LOOPING connects businesses with customers by empowering them to close the loyalty program information gap in an eco-friendly, creative and resourceful way," said Matt Marshall, executive producer, DEMO.
With LOOPING, customers can put their wallet on a diet. All loyalty cards, printed punch cards and key fobs are replaced with the customer's mobile phone number or the LOOPING App. At the point of purchase, the customer makes a quick call and taps the mobile phone speaker on the merchant device's microphone to instantly collect points and redeem rewards. LOOPING App users can tap the mobile phone right away, without making a call, as well as discover new loyalty programs nearby and track reward balances and history across all venues.
The LOOPING Public Beta program launches TODAY and is free for a limited time. Find out more and try LOOPING at www.LOOPING.com.
