BETHESDA, MARYLAND -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp"), an international provider of mobile marketing solutions listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX VENTURE:SPN), is pleased to announce the launch of three new shopper-marketing programs. All three programs leverage SnippCheck, Snipp's unique receipt processing solution and SnippWin, Snipp's comprehensive cross-device promotions tool.
A leading provider of fiber cement siding and backer board is using SnippWin and SnippCheck to run a three-month sweepstakes contest exclusively in 24 Lowe's stores in the Chicago Metropolitan area. Consumers can enter to win a grand prize suite at a Chicago Cubs home game along with other prizes by submitting purchase receipts. The more of the brand's products a consumer purchases at Lowe's, the more entries they get into the sweepstakes. The program launched April 15 and is running until August 15, 2014 with winners chosen monthly. Snipp assisted in media buying, program design, and implementation.
A SnippCheck promotion with a food company gives consumers a free movie ticket to see "How to Train Your Dragon 2" when they purchase 3 qualifying products. To participate, consumers need to send in their receipt via text message to SnippCheck. Once validated, Snipp partner Fandango will fulfill the movie ticket reward. The program launched May 1 and will run through June 30, 2014 and runs nationally across all retailers.
Partnering with a marketing company, SnippCheck is powering a purchase-based sweepstakes program that targets shoppers within a 5-mile radius of a Walmart store. Consumers need to purchase the brand's products at any Walmart and email their receipts for a chance to win one of 5 $100 Walmart gift cards. The sweepstakes launched May 1 and is running through June 15, 2014.
Atul Sabharwal, CEO of Snipp, said, "We have been growing by leaps and bounds. These recent campaigns are all great examples of how different brand categories are leveraging our solutions to increase sales, and really emphasize the fact that our receipt-based solutions and promotions platform appeal to brands across all categories."

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
