Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
SparkBase, Inc. (http://www.sparkbase.com) a Cleveland-based loyalty marketing company is launching Paycloud, their mobile rewards application for iPhones and Android smartphones, to Cleveland businesses.
Paycloud is a mobile app that allows businesses to extend the reach of their existing reward program and delivers discounts and deals directly to customers on the one thing they’re most likely to eat, sleep, work and most importantly, shop with: their phone.
Paycloud is a free app for customers, downloaded through the iPhone or Android app store on their smartphone. Once registered with Paycloud, customers can locate area businesses, enroll in their Paycloud program in a single touch, and instantly gain access to discounts and rewards.
Unlike traditional discount and reward programs, customers earn points and redeem rewards and discounts in store through a low-cost Paycloud sensor without ever printing an email or cutting coupons.
Paycloud was developed specifically for small, local businesses, which have the greatest need for the benefits of reward programs, but can’t afford to dramatically cut prices with typical daily-deal programs.
“Small businesses can’t afford to slash prices to attract one-time shoppers looking for the best deal,” said Doug Hardman, CEO of SparkBase. “What they need is a program to help them build a loyal customer base of frequent shoppers to increase sales for the long run. Paycloud helps them do that. And, by doing it through a mobile program, merchants gain deeper customer insights and are keeping pace with chain stores, who are already communicating with customers through their mobile devices.”
The Paycloud team will be visiting Cleveland businesses January 16-27, 2012 to demo Paycloud and help them sign up for the service, which includes a free trial.
Businesses can also contact Paycloud directly through paycloud.com.
