Local Newry entrepreneur, Cormac Quinn, has officially launched the loyalBe app in Newry this week, to support local businesses through data-driven loyalty.
This exciting launch aims to drive local recovery by encouraging the public to support local businesses within Newry, as restrictions ease and businesses continue to trade.
To celebrate the Newry launch, the loyalBe team visited the streets of Newry to encourage the ‘shop local’ message, speak with local business owners and welcome new businesses onto the loyalBe app.
The loyalBe platform improves customer engagement between retailers and their customers, by replacing outdated loyalty tools (for example, inconvenient paper cards and QR codes) with an easy-to-use mobile app.
The loyalBe app uses bank-linking technology, allowing customers to automatically earn rewards with their favourite retailers, simply by paying with their debit card. This technology removes the need for any Point of Sale integrations or equipment in-store, allowing for a rapid and straightforward set-up.
The loyalBe app has onboarded a number of local businesses in the Newry area, including: La Dolce Vita, Finegan and Son, Grounded Espresso, Donut Face, Maya Café, Friscos and many more.
loyalBe Founder and CEO, Cormac Quinn, who is from Newry, is a champion of supporting local businesses and is delighted to launch the loyalBe app in the area: “It’s important that we celebrate local businesses and show our support by spending our money where it matters most. When you buy from a small business, you’re supporting the local community and ensuring that your favourite café or restaurant survives. Supporting local businesses within Newry and ensuring that they have the necessary tools they need to thrive in this economy is our main priority at loyalBe – and I am thrilled to launch the loyalBe app within Newry.”
Cormac believes that loyalBe’s innovative loyalty platform will help businesses in Newry to drive customer footfall: “With loyalBe, SMEs can feel confident in increasing customer footfall by utilising promotions and campaigns sent through push notifications, reminding customers of their offering and encouraging customers to visit again.”
As part of its launch in Newry, and to celebrate businesses reopening alongside its #WelcomeBackNI campaign, loyalBe is offering the tool to SMEs free until the end of 2021, with access to the business dashboard and customer insights. This is a limited-time offer for Newry businesses.
Businesses in Newry that are interested in discovering how loyalBe can help drive customer footfall, are encouraged to visit the loyalBe website to book a free demo and avail of this limited-time offer.
