First Data Introduces Perka(TM) Mobile Loyalty Solution for SMB Merchants

First Data Corporation announced the commercial integration of its Perka(TM) Mobile Loyalty Solution. Its apps are now available through First Data distribution systems. Extending far beyond traditional couponing, newspaper and yellow page ads, or old-fashioned paper loyalty cards, Perka, the most recent offering from First Data Small Business Solutions, is a cloud-based customer loyalty solution that connects businesses to their customers using location-based apps and mobile phones. It helps SMB owners maintain profitable and long-term relationships with their customers by providing a sustainable and highly personalized incentive program. How it works: Merchants sign up, activate their welcome kit and then work with a Perka customer service representative to design a customized loyalty program. Customers participate by downloading the Perka app on any smart phone, where they instantly see a list of participating merchants nearby and what loyalty promotions they are offering. When entering the store, customers launch the app and check in, which signals their presence to the merchant, who then greets them by name and validates their purchases. Making a personal connection with customers is a key factor in building loyalty, which often results in repeat visits. One of the newest specialty apps introduced to the platform, Perka is now available for the Clover(TM) Station, First Data's elegant touchscreen point-of-sale solution. The Clover solution helps merchants track inventory, manage employees, build lasting customer relationships, and accept payments with ease - all on one dynamic system. Merchants may customize and grow their system's capabilities with the ever-expanding Clover App Market, available only through the Clover Station.
