The pilot trial, initially organized by nData Services, IT Retail, SMS Promotions and Qples by Fobi, was conducted at 3 LaGrees Food Stores in Colorado. Coupons for LaGrees customers of Blue Bunny ice cream created in Qples are sent by the Fobi platform to their mobile phones. Alternatively, customers can also use the Qples QR code on the in-store banners offered by SMS offers to download the voucher directly to their phone.

Once TCB validates the coupon and the customer receives their discount, it is sent to nData Services who settles the coupon, ensuring LaGrees receives the coupon much more quickly than older coupon programs. Finally, Qples by Fobi provides referral data through its online portal, helping Wells Enterprises understand how the campaign is performing in real time, and allowing them to make changes to improve the campaign mid-journey.

For me, the lamp went off—finally a single point of truth for voucher data; I realized that this solution would provide improved validation. Validates coupons and solves coupon fraud in the U.S. Prior to 8112 by TCB, POS systems had little means to validate coupons with hashed data sources for family codes and non-compliance with 8110 standards to ensure correctly coded coupons with no way to prevent Duplicate CPG Offers.

This will tighten controls, reduce fraud and give brands more direct contact with consumers. Both digital and print will benefit from the personalization of coupons.”
