nData New Channel Partner Program: ISVs & Resellers Now Bring 8112 Digital Offers to Every Retailer
Through nData Services’ New Channel Partner Program, ISVs and Resellers Can Now Bring 8112 Digital Offers to Every Retailer, Both Big and Small
Denver, 07/26/23 - nData Services, LLC, a leading provider of Application Identifier (AI) 8112 digital coupon solutions, and clearing and settlement services, announced the launch of its new Channel Partner Program. This program will allow ISVs and resellers to drive residual income by providing retail customers and their shoppers with the convenience of digital coupons.
As budgets continue to be stretched by inflation and time becomes a more precious commodity, paper coupon issuance and redemption have steadily declined, while digital coupons step into the breach. This digitization of couponing is led by 8112 digital offers, being brought to market by The Coupon Bureau, a non-profit collaboration of retailer, manufacturer, and trade association groups.
8112 offers are digital-first, designed to be delivered directly to consumer phones, and virtually fraud-proof, addressing a major weakness in legacy coupon standards. Given these advantages and the ability to better target consumers, leading CPGs like Procter & Gamble, General Mills and Coca-Cola are backing 8112 as a new model in promotions.
nData has built a platform to both create and settle 8112 offers and, after conducting the first end-to-end pilot in the nation, is now deploying its 8112 digital coupon platform into retail locations, both directly and through its new channel partner program.
nData’s 8112 digital coupon platform:
Enables consumers to save money and time by redeeming multiple digital coupons with a single QR code, directly at the point of sale.
Provides retailers with increased revenues, real-time validation, reduced fraud, an automated submission and reconciliation process, rapid payment, and rich data insights.
Allows ISVs and resellers to provide 8112 digital coupon capabilities to their retail customers, while driving residual income.
nData’s leadership team has a wealth of experience in retail markets and transaction processing, and knows the challenges in accessing retail POS systems. Samuel Jonas, nData’s CEO and Co-Founder, said “8112 digital coupons are a revolution in digital promotions, integrating with existing POS systems and allowing all retailers, both big and small, to access the best manufacturer offers available in the market. nData Services is proud to be part of the value chain that increases retailer revenues, while helping consumers stretch their budgets.”
Auto-Star CompuSystems, Inc., a leading point-of-sale and head office solution for retailers, and one of the first ISVs to enter into collaboration with nData, believes that integrating nData’s 8112 digital coupon platform with Auto-Star’s POS software will enhance the consumer shopping experience and allow retailers to leverage this new technology to drive sales.
Ivan Long, Auto-Star’s Vice President, said “8112 coupons set the stage for a more seamless and rewarding shopping experience for both customers and retailers, and provides the opportunity for increased revenues, and reduced overhead.”
In conjunction with the launch of its channel partner program, nData has retained industry veteran Bruce Mann, of Mann and Associates, to assist with the development and implementation of its channel programs. Bruce, a corporate director and marketing expert with 25+ years experience, has broad knowledge of the retail technology and POS industry. When asked about nData’s digital coupon platform and channel partner program, Bruce said ”I am excited to work with nData, to introduce an opportunity for nData channel partners to add another significant income stream to the residual margin stack by empowering merchants to accept 8112 digital coupons, which offer much-needed savings to consumers and provide retailers with the opportunity to attract more customers and increase average ticket size.“
