Global leader in loyalty currency management Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM) announced today that its Points Loyalty Wallet platform has been awarded a 2016 Contactless & Mobile Award in the Mobile Wallet category. Judged based on security, privacy, stability and convenience, Points Loyalty Wallet connects users with their loyalty programs, increasing the utility of their points and miles by transforming them into fully transactionable currencies for everyday use.
Complementing and accelerating the use of mobile wallet technology by working alongside existing mobile wallets and loyalty programs, the Points Loyalty Wallet offers a quick-to-market solution that allows users to track and manage loyalty balances and exchange loyalty currency from one program to another.
"We've long understood the power of loyalty and that it's an important driver of mobile wallet adoption and the technology's long-term success," said Christopher Barnard, President of Points. "And with the Points Loyalty Wallet, we're not only bringing value to consumers, but developing new ways for mobile wallet developers and loyalty programs to engage with new and existing members, while driving incremental revenue from loyalty transactions."
Powered by Points' Loyalty Commerce Platform, the Points Loyalty Wallet is a set of platform capabilities accessible via hosted solution or APIs that allow loyalty programs, merchants and other product partners to embed balance tracking and loyalty commerce transactions into their product offerings whether on the web or in an app. It enables access to an industry-sanctioned global Loyalty Commerce Network that facilitates the ability to distribute loyalty currencies that users already know and love.
