Integrated Mobile Marketing and Payments Application Takes Merchants and Consumers From Discovery To Loyalty To Retention
Scottsdale, AZ – Spindle, Inc., (OTCQB: SPDL), a leading provider of mobile commerce solutions, announced that it will preview its new MeNetwork360SM application at the Money2020 conference, scheduled for October 6-9 at the Aria Hotel in Las Vegas. MeNetwork360 is an innovative solution that integrates location-based mobile marketing, secure mobile payment processing, and consumer loyalty and retention functions into a single, intelligently designed platform that's easy for merchants and consumers to use. MeNetwork360 is set for general availability in fall of 2013.
The MeNetwork360 platform is comprised of a consumer-facing smartphone and tablet app designed to facilitate geo-relevant merchant discovery, and MeNetworkProSM —also a smartphone and tablet-based app—which acts as a marketing and mobile payments processing hub for small and medium businesses. Merchants can create customized offers, promotions, events, and announcements according to time- and location-based parameters; this content can then be immediately distributed to MeNetwork's nationwide consumer user base with a click of a mouse. Merchants can also quickly enroll consumers into self-designed loyalty programs that track progress and deliver rewards directly to the user's mobile device, and can then "close the loop" by facilitating both card-based and stored value payments via direct interaction between the two apps. These comprehensive services help merchants identify, engage, and retain local customers, while conducting payment-processing activities on the same platform.
Consumers can download the free MeNetwork application for iOS and Android mobile devices, delivering offers and information from area merchants right to the consumer's phone or tablet. The app provides timely and relevant offers based on the customer's current location and self-reported preferences. Consumers can also join loyalty programs, redeem rewards, share merchant and offer discoveries through social media, and pay for products and services using the app's seamlessly integrated MeNetwork MobileWallet.
"We're thrilled to make this initial presentation of the MeNetwork360 platform at Money2020," said Bill Clark, chief executive officer for Spindle. "The event gives us a dynamic forum to preview the sophisticated features of this integrated mobile commerce ecosystem. The MeNetwork360 platform is an example of the true potential of the mobile commerce paradigm, allowing retailers and consumers to engage and interact through a single convenient, frictionless mobile platform."
Spindle will be located at booth 640 throughout the Money2020 exhibition.
