Abierto Networks’ Mobile Coupon Center Receives VeriFone Ruby Sapphire Certification

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Our industry-leading platform for creating, distributing and redeeming Mobile Coupons is accepted as a supported solution for use with Sapphire Mini Server in VeriFone POS applications.

Eliot, ME – May 21st, 2012 – Abierto Networks announced today that Mobile Coupon CenterTM has been certified by VeriFone for use with its Ruby Sapphire POS in the convenience store industry.

“Achieving VeriFone certification for Mobile Coupon CenterTM is a significant milestone for Abierto” said Rick Sales, President of Abierto Networks.  “A key component of our new Digital Marketing Platform, Mobile Coupon CenterTM allows retailers to create, manage, target, distribute, redeem and measure Mobile Coupon offers, promotions and contests.”

A cloud-hosted solution, Mobile Coupon CenterTM delivers its powerful functionality via a secure, browser-based user interface that allows retailers to plan and track promotional activities.  VeriFone Sapphire Retailers can deploy Abierto’s LCU device to connect their POS to Abierto’s Mobile Coupon Redemption Host and electronically redeem their mobile coupon offers, controlling promotional costs, reducing fraud and providing real-time measurement and tracking of mobile coupon promotions.  In addition to providing coupon redemption control, Abierto’s Mobile Coupon Redemption Host collects valuable consumer, site and tender data that can be used for targeting future promotional offers.

Rick Sales added “While many companies can distribute coupons to mobile devices, most convenience store retailers want to limit their financial exposure by controlling the redemption rules associated with the promotions offered via mobile coupons.  Of equal importance is the retailers’ desire to collect buying behavior information that can be used to target consumers with future promotional offers.  Abierto’s Mobile Coupon CenterTM delivers this functionality in a cost effective and easy to use offering, that is now VeriFone Certified.  We are very proud of this achievement!”
