August 4, 2011, San Francisco – The Stampt smartphone based customer loyalty service allows independents and chains to move their loyalty reward card programs from paper stamp cards to a mobile application.
Using Stampt is easy. Consumers simply pull out their smartphone at the point-of-sale and scan the Stampt "Quick Scan Card" available near the register after a purchase. Stampt records their visit and reward-eligible purchase, and stamps their digital card.
“Stampt revolutionizes customer loyalty by making it mobile and social. No more forgotten or lost cards. The cards live on your phone. It’s convenient and effective,” said Brian Kelly, co-founder of Stampt. “Pizza store owners can benefit from customer interactions and insights that were never before available. They can finally know the effect of their loyalty programs and can interact with their customers. And consumers love to use Stampt so they build loyalty at more places, more often.”
Merchants interested in using Stampt simply visit www.stampt.com and fill out a short registration form. After signing up, a retailer specifies the type of loyalty reqard program they would like to offer (i.e. boy 10 slices and get one free). Stampts sends each participating merchant a kit inclusing posters, a window sticker and the Stampt “Quick Scan Card” to place near the register.
Stampt is also a platform for merchants to communicate news and special offers directly to their customers. The app lets users see and react to special offers within 15 minutes.
Users can also help spread the word, posting their Stampt activity to Facebook and Twitter and allowing their friends and followers to see where they are earning rewards. Social-sphere integration increases awareness and adoption of both Stampt and participating merchants.
Merchants using Stampt can receive reports showing customer activity, such as the number of active card holders, how frequently customers purchase, how recently they've visited, the most popular time of day for visits, and what products and services customers are buying.
