Maritz is going mobile with the addition of a new Deal of the Day application to the Maritz AwardHQ Collection. Through a reduced-price daily reward, the new mobile app increases excitement and engagement for participants and keeps rewards programs top of mind – leading to better program results. The app is available on select smartphones, including the iPhone, Android, Nexus and Blackberry.
“Adding this new app to our existing lineup of world-class incentive, recognition and reward solutions gives our clients more ways to involve participants wherever they are,” said Julia Bailey, vice president, solution development, Maritz Loyalty & Motivation. “As the leader in the incentive and loyalty rewards industry, Maritz recognizes that the market is evolving and businesses today need accessible options. Ultimately, this new offering provides more convenience and on-demand access to services and benefits any time.”
Deal of the Day is both a mobile application that is downloaded to smartphones by program participants and a website that can be accessed via AwardHQ. The app and website have the same functionality and daily deals. Participants have access to deals ranging from 10 to 50 percent off for popular brands such as Apple®, Canon, Cuisinart, Nike, Sony®, Bose® and Michael Kors. Functionality is similar to other social discount programs such as Groupon in that each discount is only available for a limited time, to enrolled members.
The mobile app also allows program participants to spread the word on deals of the day through social media integration on Facebook and Twitter, creating instant viral marketing campaigns.
“Clients want programs that yield engagement, mindshare and differentiation of products and services from their competition,” said Bailey. “The Deal of the Day provides our clients with an offering that creates a sense of urgency, driving spontaneous redemption and increasing engagement through daily, limited time offers on desirable products. It’s a win-win for everybody.”
