DOVER, N.H. – RewardsNOW is partnering with Zavee to offer what the companies claim is a new type of merchant-funded program tailored to the needs of community financial institutions and local merchants.
The focus, according to Ron Stack, COO of Boca Raton, Fla.-based Zavee, is on creating a community rewards program. “This partnership’s combined offering is a fundamental advance over other available merchant-funded programs for community financial institutions and local merchants.”
The keys, according to Stack, are easy on-boarding of merchants that can be handled online in 15 minutes, and flexibility, in that the program offers merchants more than 20 different types of rewards in which to participate. There also is a social media element that allows merchants to easily advertise their deals on platforms such as Facebook and Twitter, and to gain feedback from consumers on the deals they use via the same forums.
