Cartera Commerce Selected as Top 250 Global Company by AlwaysOn

Card-Linked Marketing Innovator Makes AlwaysOn Global 250 List for Leadership and 'Game-Changing' Technology

LEXINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 15, 2013) - Cartera Commerce, the leader in card-linked marketing solutions, today announced that it has been selected as a 2013 AlwaysOn Global 250 winner.

The Boston-based company, whose card-linked marketing platform connects the nation's leading merchants to more than 150 million top-spending consumers through offers linked to their preferred payment and loyalty cards, was recognized for the second year for its leadership and "game-changing" technology in the "B2B - SaaS and enterprise" category. Cartera Commerce is honored for its potential to "disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the Global Silicon Valley" and is listed among companies like HubSpot, Eventbrite and Shopify.

"Card-linked marketing drives new shopping behaviors and builds loyalty. For participating merchants, card-linked offers can lift customer acquisition, total spend, and lifetime value. For banks, airlines and loyalty programs, it expands cardmember engagement, maximizes spend and creates new revenue streams," said Tom Beecher, president and CEO of Cartera Commerce. "Consumers are rapidly redeeming card-linked offers to accrue more of their favorite rewards like cashback, miles and points. We're pleased that AlwaysOn has recognized the power of our game-changing marketing platform once again in 2013."

AlwaysOn leaders said Cartera Commerce was selected by its editorial team and global, industry experts based on five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz. The winners were selected from thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2013 list.

Cartera Commerce and the other companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's 11th annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., on July 23, 2013.
