Neutral Universal Positive Offer File connecting the retail landscape creates a platform for innovation grounded in interoperable standards.
GTIN validation allows manufacturers to ensure the coupon is redeemed for the intended purchase requirements. More accurate than the current family code process, manufacturers will see more effective campaign results.
Serialized, Single Use
Universal Single Use Coupons are serialized at the time of distribution, which allows manufacturers and providers to ensure that each coupon is only used once.
Realtime Redemption Data
Transaction data related to coupon issuance and redemption are available to authorized stakeholders in realtime. Manufacturers can see where and when their coupons were redeemed, allowing for more efficient and effective campaign management.
For providers, this will enable innovative universal mobile delivery and redemption for manufacturer distributed coupons.
