Editors Note: There are two photos and a video associated with this press release.
SnipSnap, a division of visual search leader Slyce Inc. (TSX VENTURE:SLC), today announced an exclusive partnership with leading proximity marketing company Signal360. As part of this agreement, the Signal360 SDK will be the exclusive proximity marketing SDK integrated in the SnipSnap mobile application which has over 4 million active users. As part of the agreement, Signal360 will exclusively utilize SnipSnap’s proprietary Coupon Author platform to run all of their future, coupon-based client campaigns.
Signal360 will now be able to offer shoppers the ability to snap a picture of any item they like in the real-world and the next time they walk into a store, be notified via their smartphone where the item is and be provided with a digital coupon to instantly purchase it. This, along with numerous other use cases, is made possible through integrating the Slyce technologies.
The deal will see Slyce derive revenue in line with its current business model from the proximity marketing partnership and the parties will also share additional revenues derived from all proximity marketing campaigns delivered through the partnership.
“With over 4 million users already utilizing our App in stores, we provide an exceptionally rare and valuable asset for brands and retailers looking to engage with customers directly as they come into contact with their products,” said Slyce CEO, Mark Elfenbein.
New York based Signal360 is the leader in the proximity marketing industry and supports multiple Fortune 100 & 500 customers via its platform of proprietary beacons, an SDK that supports both patented audio and BLE signals, and a comprehensive CMS.
“Signal360 was the first beacon partner integrated into the SnipSnap app and after developing a wonderful working relationship with them over the last year and having great visibility to their superior offering in the market, forming an exclusive relationship was a natural next step,” said SnipSnap President Ted Mann. “This type of targeted marketing allows brands to engage with consumers in a highly-meaningful and valuable way and this leads to extremely high transaction rates on offers. In test campaigns, we have commonly seen double the conversion rates when beacon-based targeting and messaging is employed. We’re very excited to continue innovating in what is a new and thriving area for brand marketers and to be deepening our relationship with an industry-leading provider in Signal360.”
Signal360 CEO Alex Bell said, “We are constantly looking for ways to reimagine the space. While native Apps are appropriate in many instances, we have found that offering a turnkey solution that does not require native app integration is necessary in the marketplace. Ted and the SnipSnap team have been strong partners for Signal360 for over a year and we are excited to evolve this partnership in such a meaningful way.”
