Recognized by the RSPA and VSR Magazine, POS Partners custom designed Beerhead®, a smartphone application, for The Beer Market® to integrate Future POS point-of-sale with brand loyalty.
Kissimmee, FL (RestaurantNews.com) Last night, POS Partners, Inc. received an Innovative Solution Award at Retail Service Providers Association (RSPA)’s RetailNow 2015 awards ceremony. Held again this year at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Conference Center in Kissimmee, Florida, RSPA seeks to recognize and encourage excellence and advancement by providers in the hospitality and retail technology industry. The Innovative Solution Awards honor achievement across several sectors and POS Partners was recognized in the category of ISV/VAR Collaboration with point-of-sale software developer, Future POS.
Specifically, POS Partners and Future POS are acknowledged for the design and build of Beerhead®, a “beer club” loyalty program. Created for The Beer Market®, a fast growing craft beer bar and restaurant concept, the program needed a point-of-sale integrated application to drive brand loyalty and higher sales through and repeat customer engagement. The app utilizes the already extensive functionality of Future POS’s built-in loyalty features, and POS Partners’ programmers layered it with their own cloud-based enterprise solution, ServingIntel. The loyalty program allows customers to earn rewards based not just on the dollars spent in store but also for completing certain tasks or challenges, such as tasting all of a seasonal product line. Additionally, GPS functionality provides Geo-Fencing capability to allow customers to display only taps available at the particular location they are visiting.
The movement from manual registration to smartphone application registration has increased the customer’s program participation by tenfold, and sites with the smartphone application have gained member counts by over 100%. Founder of The Beer Market, Greg Goodrich said: “I was very happy with the initiative that POS Partners took in both proposing this solution for our Beer Club members and for designing the solution. POS Partners understood our business needs which was a great help in creating a solution that works. We expect to roll-out the solution to all of our stores in the near future.”
The Innovative Solution Award is POS Partners first individual RSPA recognition while Future POS will add to its lineage of over 10 years of awards including the prestigious Gold Medallion and multiple Vendor of Excellence.
