Mobivity's SmartReceipt Technology Powers "Treats on Receipts" at Baskin-Robbins
PHOENIX, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 12/16/14 -- Mobivity Holdings Corp. (OTCQB: MFON), an award-winning provider of proprietary smart receipt marketing solutions and patented mobile marketing technologies, announced today that Baskin-Robbins, the world's largest chain of ice cream specialty shops, has selected Mobivity's SmartReceipt technology to deliver targeted "treats on receipts" to Baskin-Robbins customers.
Guests at Baskin-Robbins shops will now receive targeted offers and promotions printed on their purchase receipt thanks to Mobivity's SmartReceipt technology.
SmartReceipt, which can be installed on practically any point-of-sale (POS) system, reads purchase data in real-time when generating a printed receipt, which enables Baskin-Robbins to enhance the customer experience by ensuring that coupons and offers are relevant and personalized given what the consumer actually purchased, rather than generic non-targeted offers. For example, knowing in real-time that a consumer has purchased a beverage results in a dynamically generated offer for a beverage on the consumer's receipt, made possible through the SmartReceipt's patented technology.
"The ability to deliver personalized, valuable consumer offers and promotions via receipt content will allow us to provide a better guest experience and drive more business for our franchisees," said Bill Mitchell, President, Baskin-Robbins U.S. and Canada, and Dunkin' Donuts & Baskin-Robbins China, Japan and Korea. "Our field tests with SmartReceipt have shown that the right offer at the right time, delivered at the point-of-sale, adds great value for our customers. We look forward to launching this technology at Baskin-Robbins shops nationwide."
"We are elated that Baskin-Robbins has chosen our SmartReceipt technology to power timely, relevant offers and promotions to their consumers," stated Dennis Becker, Chief Executive Officer of Mobivity. "We look forward to working closely with Baskin-Robbins to shape the future of their consumer experience at the point-of-sale and improving performance for their brand and franchisees."
Following the successful results from trials at select Baskin-Robbins shops, the brand plans to begin deploying the SmartReceipt technology at its U.S. restaurants by the end of the year.
