Victor Onassis Roque, President/CEO of Provida Mortgage & Realty, Inc., commented: "We were looking for a multi-functional program that would promote loyalty to our clients and to our employees. The platform had to be private branded, expansive and act as an exciting value added benefit. The BSP Rewards program brought together over 700 national merchants and over 7,000 national restaurants that provide rebate reward points of up to 15% to everyone involved with Provida who participate in the program."

Provida will be offering its private branded rewards mall as a value added benefit and bonus program to employees, clients and their families. Programs allow for easy admission of new members, with fast and simple access to discount shopping and a points reward program for additional purchasing power. The convenience of e-commerce, value pricing for everyday products and services, and the added benefits of a loyalty program are the cornerstones of the BSP Rewards web mall experience.

Based on a unique, technologically enhanced Internet platform, MediaNet Group's BSP Rewards unit during the past six months has attracted an increasing number of member organizations and merchant partners for its web mall concept. Provida is the latest member organization, among a current total of nearly 70 outstanding organizations, to engage BSP Rewards for the creation of an online shopping mall with a comprehensive loyalty program.
