As a result of this partnership, merchants using the Yowza!! national marketing platform will be able to deliver relevant coupons and offers based on consumer preferences, location and other analytics factors.
IQvantage is a market leader in the delivery of next generation technology that allows merchants to identify and act upon optimal marketing opportunities based on real-time and historical predictive data analytics. Through this technology, businesses can leverage "big data," real-time situational intelligence derived from a number of sources that include location, proximity, weather, point of sale, social media, web-based interactions, and other metrics. This access to real-time information allows merchants to deliver customized engagements that are personalized, immediate and relevant.
"The strategic relationship with IQvantage represents a significant step for Spindle in terms of redefining the merchant-consumer dynamic," said Bill Clark, Spindle's chief executive officer. "The ability to harness and act upon the information residing in consumer data is seen as the 'holy grail' among merchants. It is a vital component in terms of understanding customer propensities, and then enabling relevant marketing and selling strategies that are built upon this information. The combination of Yowza and IQvantage will be unprecedented in terms of integrating actionable data into real-time marketing campaigns. It is clearly the type of comprehensive solution the market has been calling for, and we are pleased to be among the first in this space to introduce this unified commerce solution into the market."
"Spindle has assembled the essential mobile marketing platform with Yowza!!," said Mike Corbisiero, chief executive officer for IQvantage. "Through its integration of the consumer shopping app, point-of-sale technology, marketing services, location-based beaconing services, and now IQvantage for connecting to these and other data sources of the consumer, we have the ability to generate an 'in the moment' engagement model that has long been talked about in the marketplace.
