A team of UPEI students and Timeless Technologies announced the launch of an exciting new smartphone application this week aimed at solving the problem of managing a wallet full of loyalty cards. Quipin is a mobile loyalty app that instantly offers customers a new way to store their loyalty cards, collect points at participating businesses and trade those points in for rewards. These rewards can include discounts, privileges, free products or services, and much more.
Quipin also provides businesses with a tool to create their own custom loyalty program and establish interesting partnership opportunities with other businesses in their community. The first business partnership to implement Quipin is Charlottetown’s T3 Transit and Shoppers Drug Mart. Downloading the Quipin app will provide riders of T3 Transit with a way to collect points for riding the bus and trade them in for rewards at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Quipin is excited to team up with T3 Transit and Shoppers Drug Mart to offer rewards to passengers of the transit system. Mike Cassidy, owner of T3 Transit, said “The opportunity provided by the Quipin software technology allows both Shoppers Drug Mart, located at 403 University Ave., and T3 Transit to build a joint customer loyalty program and pass on tremendous savings to the customer.” In a unique cross-promotional effort, the two businesses are working together to provide an incentive for riders to go green. By riding the bus and leaving their vehicles at home, customers are given the chance to save money on their everyday purchases.
Using Quipin, riders can collect points when riding the T3 transit system by scanning a code available on each bus. Once points have been accumulated, commuters can then exchange them for discounts at Shoppers Drug Mart on certain products and brands (such as Life Brand). This applies to the location on the corner of University Avenue and Kirkwood Drive only.
This past spring, Timeless Technologies collaborated with UPEI to host The Big Pitch, a contest aimed at pairing computer science students and business students in teams of four to compete in a Dragons Den style contest. The groups were asked to pitch ideas for mobile apps and the prize included paid internships for the summer to develop the app, a $50,000 marketing budget, and the opportunity to be Quipin shareholders. Seven teams took part and the winning group comprised of students Kris Gay, John Williams and Nikkie Gallant. John Rowe, president of Timeless Technologies believes Quipin has great potential, “Quipin started off as just an idea. We’ve since been working with these students to bring this idea to life and to ensure that this app is as useful to the businesses as it is to the consumers.”
