NCR and Matthias MoneyBoard Partner to Offer On-Demand Couponing
High-tech innovation in on-site coupon dispensing provides advantages to manufacturers and retailers, convenience to consumers
April 18, 2006, ATLANTA – NCR Corporation (NYSE: NCR) and Matthias MoneyBoard Inc. today announced they have signed an agreement to offer a self-service coupon dispensing solution using NCR EasyPoint™ touch-screen kiosks. The Matthias MoneyBoard Coupons On Demand solution will be exhibited in NCR’s booth at the 2006 Food Marketing Institute Show, May 7-9 in Chicago.
With the solution, product manufacturers and retailers can benefit from a streamlined coupon marketing, redemption and reconciliation program. The device is also designed to save consumers time and money without having to clip and carry coupons into the store. Placed at the entrance of the store, the device allows shoppers to select from a preprogrammed list of 72 brand-name items and print coupons in seconds.
“The coupons are placed at consumers’ fingertips where purchasing decisions are made,” said John T. Matthias, founder, president and chief executive officer, Matthias MoneyBoard Inc. “Advantages for manufacturers and retailers include gaining market share on new and existing products, selling overstocked items, influencing multiple purchases, softening the impact of price increases and increasing brand awareness and customer loyalty.”
Manufacturers lease squares on the system, and control the maximum number of coupons redeemed and the savings amount. Up-to-date reports of redemption activity are available to manufacturers at all times on a Web account, allowing them to change, add or discontinue programs within 48 hours.
There is no charge to retailers to install or maintain the Matthias MoneyBoard device. Instead, retailers receive a weekly payment per redeemed Matthias MoneyBoard coupon.
“Combining Matthias MoneyBoard’s comprehensive marketing package with the intuitive and manageable NCR EasyPoint kiosk creates an innovative solution designed to provide a unique customer service, as well as promotional opportunities for retailers and manufacturers,” said Nelson Gomez, vice president, NCR Retail Self-Service Sales.
