Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) November 04, 2013

Omnego Inc., an innovative white-label mobile app platform provider, today announced a partnership with CashStar, the digital gifting company preferred by the world’s leading brands, that leverages CashStar’s platform to integrate eGift card purchase functionality within branded apps.

More than 300 brands leverage CashStar’s on-demand B2C and B2B gifting technology to drive customer acquisition, engagement and loyalty, and achieve greater returns from their eGift offerings. The eGift category is rapidly growing and is expected to reach $11 billion by 2014, according to CEB Tower Group. Studies reveal that, while mobile apps are an efficient way to connect with brands, 80 – 90 percent of all apps are only used once before they are deleted by users (source: Compuware). This puts increasing pressure on brands to deliver apps that provide convenience, meaningful engagement, and positive user experiences. Offering eGift cards for sale within an app creates a different type of engagement strategy that gives users reason to come back to the app. App users have the ability to personalize eGift cards, pay for them in-app, and have them delivered to the recipient of their choice via email.

"We are thrilled to partner with CashStar and offer Omnego’s clients our combined solutions. Adding CashStar’s eGift capability to our advanced white-label app platform provides another engagement tool and demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing innovative mobile engagement strategies to our partners," says Omnego CEO David Thomas. "The explosive growth in eGifting provides another way to acquire, retain, and re-engage with app users in the mobile channel."

"In addition to providing Omnego’s clients with access to eGift cards from the most desirable retail and restaurant brands, this partnership enables CashStar to give our clients exposure to a new group of potential customers," said Alex Brutin, CashStar Vice President of Business Development.
