MoSoCo Poland Chooses Sequent to Provide NFC Mobile Technology Platform and ServiceDecember 12th, 2012
Redwood City, CA– Sequent, a leading provider of Near Field Communications (NFC) Trusted Service Manager (TSM) software and services, announced today that MoSoCo Sp. z o.o has chosen Sequent’s NFC technology and products for its cloud-based mobile loyalty, marketing and prepaid card processing services for Polish retailers. Sequent’s secure technology will allow customers to use their loyalty and prepaid accounts on their current mobile phones using an RFID sticker. In the near future, customers will be able to use their accounts on NFC-enabled mobile phones.
MoSoCo’s innovative service, branded MoSivo, enables a single MoSoCo account to function as a loyalty card for multiple retailers, so consumers no longer have to carry multiple retailer loyalty cards or stamped paper points. Consumers simply tap their phones against the MoSoCo contactless reader at participating retailers to earn loyalty points or redeem coupons – all enabled by Sequent technology. The MoSoCo system is available to retailers in Poland and other neighboring countries, providing an alternative to in-house mobile marketing and loyalty programs.
“MoSoCo has chosen Sequent because of their experience in NFC, mobile and loyalty technologies. Our goal is to provide exciting new services through real-time and location-based loyalty and marketing programs using NFC technology,” said Tomasz Zieliński, Chairman of MoSoCo. “With the ability to support multiple retailer programs in one customer account on an NFC phone, we expect to have great adoption for our program.”
Innovative services like MoSoCo’s NFC initiative are driving tremendous growth in mobile loyalty and marketing programs. Retailers are expected to send mobile users over $43 billion worth of mobile coupons by 2016 according to Juniper Research,” said Robb Duffield, CEO of Sequent. “Targeted mobile marketing and loyalty programs using NFC phones can be powerful revenue growth tools for retailers, producing a much higher usage and redemption rate than paper-based coupons. Equally important, these programs bring increased value to consumers on a wide range of goods and services.”
