Sponsored Category: Use of Interactive Technology in Promotions 

Snipp’s promotions and loyalty platform utilises the latest OCR (Optical Character Recognition) technology to allow brands to run promotions tied to purchase without using on-pack codes or involving the retailer and their systems. We help deliver brand activations and reward consumers based on a value of spend; a number of products purchased; or a sum of purchases over time – be it retailer specific or across the market.

Snipp is a mobile-first, app free solution that allows consumers to engage and enter a promotion by simply snapping a picture of their receipt after shopping and sending it in via any channel (text, email, mobile web, desktop or in-app).  The system validates purchase(s) and determines qualification based on promotion requirements and delivers the reward.

In summary, we help brands, agency partners and service providers increase sales, basket size, engagement and loyalty members by leveraging our Receipt Validation technology for ease of entry and participation.
