WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2013) - Snipp Interactive Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SPN), an international provider of mobile marketing solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (Trading Symbol SPN), is proud to announce the launch of SnippCheck (http://www.snippcheck.com), the newest solution in its MobilizeMe toolbox.
SnippCheck uses its image recognition technology, sophisticated algorithms and fraud detection to validate the authenticity of pictures submitted by customers through their mobile phone. For the first time, brands can set up programs that enable their customers to simply send a picture of their purchase receipts to receive coupons, participate in contests, collect loyalty points, unlock rewards or receive rebates. No longer does a brand require an army of people manually validating a proof of purchase received by regular mail!
SnippCheck transforms multiple industries. For example the traditional mail-in rebate industry, which returned over $8 billion to American households alone last year, can run smoother as Snipp's solution requires no point-of-sale integration, works across retailers, on all phones and in real time if required.
By creating entirely mobile workflows for product and receipt processing, SnippCheck helps brands lower their costs of such programs by at least 50% and allows for customers to receive their rebates or rewards on a pre-determined schedule versus the industry standard 6-8 weeks.
After great success and press from the pilot campaign with ARM & HAMMER, Snipp looks to continue to grow the solution to meet the needs of its ever-growing client list. The team has a number of exciting campaigns coming through the pipeline.
Snipp CEO and co-founder Atul Sabharwal said, "SnippCheck is a revolutionary new solution that is taking the shopper marketing industry by storm. It not only is more cost-effective for brands given our unique "Pay-Per-Snipp" pricing model based on user participation, but it is easier for consumers to participate in these programs because all it takes is a camera enabled phone. We have leading brands nationwide in discussions with us today to run programs via SnippCheck."
