We’re excited about our new partnership with Reward4Schools because it helps our agents and merchants connect with their local communities.
Clayton, MO (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Today Clearent, one of the nation’s fastest growing credit card processing companies, proudly announced a new partnership with Reward4Schools, a company that is revolutionizing marketing and loyalty programs by making it easy for small businesses to give back to their local communities and connect them to consumers.
Reward4Schools is a unique community program that offers compelling benefits to consumers, small businesses and local schools and charities. When consumers use their Reward4Schools Community Reward Card for purchases at local businesses, it automatically triggers donations from the businesses to their favorite school or charity.
The Reward4Schools card simplifies the cardholder experience because consumers only need to carry one card that can be used at all participating businesses across the U.S. Consumers who prefer not to carry any card can simply use their mobile phone number. This simple approach sharply contrasts other loyalty programs where consumers are required to have a separate card or mobile application for each local business.
Small business owners adopt the Reward4Schools program because it gives them a unique way to connect with their customers and grow their business. Businesses donate to local schools when cardholders visit their establishments and make purchases. The schools encourage their parents to patronize participating merchants who support them with donations, creating a virtuous cycle that benefits all participants in the program.
The Reward4Schools program also enables merchants to build a customer database to help them deepen their customer relationships and increase repeat business. Plus, Reward4Schools works with leading credit card terminals and POS systems without any special hardware.
“When we first created Reward4Schools, our goal was to develop a program that would truly benefit merchants, as well as schools and charities,” said Sonny Gartin, Founder of Reward4Schools. “There are several rewards programs in the market, but Reward4Schools stands out from the pack because it helps the entire community.”
Reward4Schools also provides an advantage for Clearent’s sales agents. The program gives them a new selling proposition where they can help merchants grow their business with a marketing solution – not just lower their credit card processing rates. The program also helps merchant sales professionals create more loyal merchants, leading to increased lifetime residuals.
“We’re excited about our new partnership with Reward4Schools because it helps our agents and merchants connect with their local communities,” remarked Dan Geraty, CEO of Clearent. “Clearent strives to provide unique benefits not available from other credit card processing companies, and Reward4Schools is a great example of that approach.”
