Savings App Named Best Marketing, Branding and Advertising App, Its Second Award This Month
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. May 18, 2017 – Coupons.com, the flagship consumer brand of Quotient Technology Inc. (NYSE: QUOT), today announced that its mobile app has been awarded the marketing, branding and advertising Appy award by MediaPost. The winners are selected by a panel of judges who evaluate apps based on originality, creativity and design across many categories. The newly-refreshed Coupons.com app, which launched in January, was also a finalist in the retail category.
“We are thrilled to win the Appy award for the Coupons.com app,” said Julie Gerdes, Vice President of Product Management at Quotient. “It’s a one-of-kind app that makes it easy for shoppers to save at multiple stores while driving sales for brands and retailers. The app you see today is a result of the hard work and dedication from our entire team.”
In addition, the app earlier this month won the Gold Award for “Best Designed Mobile App” in the lifestyle category by the Best Mobile App Awards organization. Winners were selected by a committee of designers and developers who looked at creativity, originality among other factors. As the panel noted, “Quotient is changing how shoppers save at grocery retailers by making saving money seamless.”
The updated Coupons.com app is a natural extension of Quotient’s platform, Retailer iQ, which connects to point-of-sale systems and, among other features, powers the digital coupon programs of leading grocery, club, dollar, drug and mass retailers. Shoppers participate via the retailer’s apps or websites, or with the Coupons.com app, where they can now manage their savings at multiple stores using a single app.
Shoppers connect their loyalty cards within the app and add digital coupons directly to their accounts for automatic savings at checkout. Shoppers can also save at retailers that don’t yet have paperless coupon programs, such as Walmart and Costco, by using receipt-scanning technology. They simply take a photo of their receipt and, once uploaded, they get cash back directly to their PayPal account.
