WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - Sept. 27, 2016) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp" or the "Company") (OTCQX:SNIPF)(TSX VENTURE:SPN), a global provider of digital marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions, today announced that it has signed a three-month pilot agreement with the European corporate headquarters of the world leader in beauty products - makeup, cosmetics, haircare and perfume (the "Customer"). Under this agreement Snipp will roll out SnippCheck, its proprietary receipt processing technology solution to validate purchases and drive engagement and sales for the Customer's brands in the European Union. The Customer has a presence in 130 countries and owns over 30 different brands across the luxury, consumer products and professional products sectors.
The Customer signed this pilot based on the success of multiple programs previously run on the Snipp platform in the U.S. market. Snipp has run a number of programs across their portfolio of brands on the SnippCheck and SnippRewards platforms in the U.S. These programs have included gift-with-purchase, sweepstakes and retailer specific promotions.
"This is another strong vote of confidence from an existing Fortune 500 customer based on the value of our technology platform and marketing solutions," commented Atul Sabharwal, Snipp Chief Executive Officer. "We look forward to implementing our solutions for this cosmetics giant in the European market and eventually beyond. Europe is virtually untapped territory for us and we see tremendous potential for growth as our programs become more familiar in the European marketplace. As more of our global multinational clients recognize the global applicability of our platform, we are confident that we can replicate in other markets for these same clients, the success that our U.S. programs have experienced in driving improvements in sales and customer engagement."
