Tagtile provides a free hardware device that customers can tap with their phone at the checkout to receive points, discounts or rewards.
Tagtile is a loyalty and engagement solution that is easy for merchants to set up and helps them reward their best customers and grow their business. The company provides a free kit including a cube-shaped hardware device, which plugs into a USB port or a power outlet, and includes sensors to connect to customers’ mobile phones.
At the checkout, customers simply launch the Tagtile app and tap their phone on the cube. This registers their visit and can provide them with points, discounts, coupons or rewards, depending on what the merchant wants to offer. Facebook and Twitter integration that allows customers to share their experience with others.
Tagtile merchants can also get access to analytics for their business to find out information about who has shopped there, how often, when, etc. The company currently has 35 merchants testing the service and plans to launch publicly next month.
