  • Retail Voucher Redemption (TikTap)
Solutions

Sharp has partnered with TikTap to use innovative mobile technology to proactively increase the footfall of participating outlets in the UK by introducing a local offer and voucher incentive scheme.

Utilising mobile technology supplied by TikTap, which has been developed by the company behind Orange Wednesdays, local retailers/outlets in the town centre will be able to provide shoppers with instant offers and exclusive promotions redeemable in store via their mobile phones.

The TikTap technology is enabled via a unique pod, which is plugged into a retailer’s EPOS electronic till system. Consumers download the TikTap app, which stores details of all live offers in the area – users ‘Tik’ the ones that appeal.  When they are in the outlet, they simply tap their mobile phones over the pod to redeem the offer, bridging the gap between online, mobile and High Street shopping.

With almost 15% of shops currently standing empty, due to the difficult economic climate and the rise of the online retailer, this new initiative will be launched to businesses over the coming months and aims to be a major part of the strategy to reverse decline in High Street shopping.

TikTap will help small retailers with lower marketing budgets market themselves to a wider audience, as well as larger businesses who already promote traditional offers via bonus card schemes, print vouchers and other more traditional communication channels like direct mailings. It harnesses the use of smartphones, which people carry with them all the time, enabling more effective, targeted offers tailored to new and existing customers.
