ViVOtag Sticker Technology Increases Customer Loyalty, Usage and Redemption of Promotions and Wallet Share of Payment Cards

ViVOtag ™ is a new contactless device that allows consumers to “tag” existing mobile phones with contactless functionality. Marketing, loyalty and payment providers can easily “tag” their products onto existing mobile phones to increase usage, deliver next generation mobile loyalty programs and increase revenue and differentiation. The "wallet share" war is won by offering customers a fun and easy way to pay!

Using ViVOtag consumers are able to tap their ViVOtag-enabled phones onto contactless-enabled kiosks, digital signage or price checkers to join promotion programs and receive personalized and location-based coupons. Acknowledgement of the promotion can be sent via text message to the consumer’s mobile phone, but to redeem the coupon consumers only need to tap their phone onto the contactless POS at the checkout. The same ViVOtag can also function as the payment card for the purchase and as a loyalty card accumulating points for the consumers at every transaction.

ViVOtag can be enabled by multiple chip technologies for different functionality and security levels. Most of all, ViVOtag can be branded and customized for any consumer loyalty, promotion or prepaid payment program by retailers, banks and other corporations.
