A research report published by Gartner indicates that consumer expectations are forcing a transformation of marketing engagement. The growing preference of consumers for making purchasing decisions and sharing brand experiences digitally upends business priorities. Changing consumer behavior is also driving business leaders to invest in new platforms that support customer interactions at every point of the buyer journey. According to Gartner, “marketing increasingly owns it all – from profit and loss responsibility for the outcomes of these data-driven customer experiences to the infrastructure supporting them. As a result, marketing leaders control a growing share of the technology budget, directly influencing the purchase of customer-facing, revenue generating technology investments.”
Snipp Interactive Inc. (OTCQB: SNIPF) is also listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the ticker (TSX-V: SPN). Yesterday the company announced breaking news that, “a leading US-based meat products value brand has migrated its existing loyalty program to the SnippLoyalty Platform. The company is part of an international multi-national food processing and distribution company with over eighteen billion dollars (USD) in global revenue.
Snipp was selected as the new provider for the client’s existing loyalty implementation and won the contract based on the ease of use and flexibility of our platform as well as our ability to run multiple promotions as overlays to the core loyalty program. Snipp had previously sold multiple shorter-term programs to this client (in Q4 of 2017), which were precursors to the current three-year deal. The Company expects to grow this relationship significantly in coming quarters, with the potential to add additional brands within both the client’s and its parent’s portfolios.”
According to Atul Sabharwal, Chief Executive Officer at Snipp, “We’re thrilled to work with this key client to enhance their existing program and to build on the previous programs we successfully implemented for them last year. The trust placed in our platform is significant as this is a core program for our client and focuses on distribution channels that are critical to their sales efforts. Contracts that cover essential customer sales channels are particularly gratifying, because they validate both the reliability and effectiveness of our technology and solutions.”
