Scanbuy Partners with GS1 Spain and GS1 Hungary to Offer Mobile Engagement Platform to Brands

Scanbuy, Inc. today announced a partnership with GS1 Spain and GS1 Hungary to provide brands a mobile engagement platform that creates opportunities for real-world, real-time interaction with consumers via their mobile phones.

With the platform, managed and branded by the GS1 member countries, companies can deliver product information, offer promotions, collect consumer feedback, create automated dialogues, and enable other innovative consumer interactions through mobile barcode scanning of product packaging. The platform also gives brands powerful consumer marketing data, such as location, demographic profiles, response to marketing campaigns, and more.

Mike Wehrs, CEO and president of Scanbuy, is set to deliver the Industry Keynote Plenary speech at the GS1 Global Forum in Brussels tomorrow, Feb. 19 at 15:00 Central European Time (CET) on how product barcode mobile scanning can help brands better engage with consumers. In addition, Scanbuy will be showcasing its ScanLife mobile engagement platform in the Market Place, Booth 12, at the event today.

“Since the kick-off of our pilot program, we have seen an overwhelming number of brands registered with thousands of consumers already using the mobile app to scan products for more information,” said Dávid Ketszeri, partnership director, GS1 Hungary, which markets the scanning platform to consumers as SafeBrand. “The Scanbuy service opens a completely new channel for brands to reach consumers directly with the right message, at the right time and at the right place. We believe the scanning of barcodes will become a normal part of the shopping experience.”

In Spain, the service is called eScan with hundreds of companies already registered and thousands of products available featuring the informational barcodes. More than 2.5 million mobile consumers in Spain are active ScanLife app users who can access the eScan service.

“We are very satisfied with the Scanbuy partnership,” said Jordi Mur, director in charge of Mobile Services at GS1 Spain. “They have demonstrated advanced marketing services, powerful technical capabilities, and most of all, a strategic vision, which without doubt will make GS1 a global reference in the B2C landscape.”

“We are gratified to be working with our initial GS1 partners in Hungary and Spain and look forward to creating additional partnerships with members who want companies and consumers to connect on the shopping aisle,” Wehrs said.
