PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - Sep 29, 2016) - Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: MFON), the award-winning, mobile marketing and customer engagement platform, announced today that the United States Patent Office (USPTO) has allowed Mobivity's application for patent protection covering a process for printing dynamic image content on receipts to be granted.
The patent, the Company's seventh, invents a system to generate value added messages on receipts printed by point-of-sale (POS) systems based on various rules determined by information conveyed on the purchase receipt such as location, time of day, or other purchase data. The patent application claims priority to a patent application filed in 2006.

"We believe that achieving patent protection around this key component of our technology offering will play a key role in protecting our competitive advantage and yield additional revenue opportunities in the future. It is our intent to continue to build and expand upon this area of intellectual property through further continuation of the invention."
