OfferPipe Simplifies Mobile Card-Linked Offers for Merchants

TranSEND, a provider of infrastructure software to the payments industry, today announced the launch of OfferPipe, a new mobile card-linked offers marketing service. OfferPipe helps small- and medium-sized businesses, known as SMBs, tap into large new audiences through mobile advertising placements and personalized offers on Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and other social media outlets. Business owners can quickly and easily publish digital promotions using their existing point-of-sale (POS) devices. These offers are relayed to digital ad exchanges, which instantly redistribute them to mobile publishers to reach the right consumers at the right times in the right places through geolocation. Consumers link payment cards with OfferPipe to take advantage of instant discounts at the time of purchase.

According to Gloria Colgan, former Discover Network and JP Morgan Chase executive and now managing director for Market Platform Dynamics, in a article titled Defining Real Innovation, “Instant POS rewards usage is a challenge that all the digital wallets, card issuers, networks and everyone in between have been working on for YEARS and YEARS, perhaps decades.” It’s the “Holy Grail,” adds Colgan.

A video demonstration of the creation and redemption of an OfferPipe mobile card-linked promotion is available.

OfferPipe is accessible to merchants through a nationwide network of payment processors and Independent Sales Organizations (ISOs) who provide credit card services and equipment. Processing organizations deploying TranSEND’s RevChip POS software can immediately activate mobile card-linked marketing services across their merchant portfolios. Merchants are able to set up and distribute card-linked marketing promotions in minutes without onsite installation or a help desk call. Once embedded in a merchant portfolio, OfferPipe helps processors and ISOs achieve higher merchant retention rates and increase revenues at a time when industry profits are being seriously impacted by transactional price compression.

“Card-linked marketing programs are the next big revenue opportunity for the payments industry,” said Terrence Crowley, chief executive officer for TranSEND. “It’s interesting that merchant profitability for acquirers and ISOs is often measured in tens of dollars per month, when merchants spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars monthly on marketing. With OfferPipe, merchant sales reps can have a different conversation,” indicates Crowley. “Payment services can now be viewed by business owners as a profit center, adding to top line income, rather than just being looked at as an expense.”

OfferPipe will be showcased at booth #1161 during TRANSACT 14: Powered by ETA on April 8-10, 2014, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino Convention Center in Las Vegas. Crowley will moderate the Card-linked Offers: The Next Big Thing panel session on Tuesday, April 8, 2014 at 11:30 a.m. in salon room Islander B.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting.

Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
