Global Payments Integrated Solutions Releases CustomerBuilder for Digital Card-Linked Offers

Global Payments Inc. announced that its Integrated Solutions division has released the CustomerBuilder digital card-linked offers product. Businesses using the product will be able to create, distribute and track digital offers through a range of publishers to attract new and returning customers. CustomerBuilder is an integrated offering allowing software developers to provide powerful marketing functionality to their customers. In the card-linked model, the consumer receives an offer and links it to a credit card, and the discount is honored in real time and reflected on the receipt. Most point-of-sale systems do not speak with digital offer programs, therefore, redemptions at time-of-purchase are cumbersome, and businesses are unable to track the results of their promotional programs easily. CustomerBuilder solves this disconnect by synching payments and digital card-linked offers within the software application.
