Spindle Reports Significant Increase in Mobile Commerce Consumer and Merchant Activity

Mobile Commerce Provider Sees Rapid Increase in Software Downloads; 25 Percent Increase in Merchant Acceptance Outlets

SCOTTSDALE, AZ -- (Marketwired) -- 06/30/14 -- Spindle, Inc. (OTCQB: SPDL), a leading provider of mobile commerce solutions, reported that it is experiencing considerable growth in both the consumer- and merchant-facing aspects of its mobile commerce services. According to the company, the rate of new downloads of Spindle's Yowza!! mobile couponing application increased 81 percent in the second quarter, compared to first quarter when the company began investing resources in the Yowza!! line after the close of its acquisition on January 3, 2014. Spindle also noted that the Yowza!! app now presents in-store offers at some 120,000 merchant outlets around the country, representing an approximate 25 percent increase since the acquisition. Among the nationwide retailers working with Spindle include Big 5 Sporting Goods, Guitar Center, and the Intercontinental Hotel Group, which includes popular brands like Holiday Inn, Intercontinental and Crowne Plaza properties.

Yowza!! is a comprehensive, location-based mobile marketing platform that allows merchants to deliver coupons and offers directly to the consumer's mobile device.

"We are pleased with the growth of the Yowza!! platform on both the consumer and merchant sides of our business, particularly in this short span," said Bill Clark, chief executive officer at Spindle. "We believe these figures validate the growing appeal of mobile commerce, and demonstrate the viability of our approach in providing a value-added solution that serves the distinctive needs of merchants and consumers. We expect to see continued favorable results for Yowza!!, particularly as we look to roll out a number of new services -- such as in-store location-triggered offers that leverages our beaconing system, and integrated marketing and payment services through Yowza!! branded cloud-based point-of-sale technology."

According to Clark, Spindle is also completing a rebranding process aimed at further accelerating growth.

"When we acquired the Yowza!! property, we recognized that this brand already had a solid consumer base in the market. We made the decision to leverage this identity, and have now completed the first of several planned customer-facing initiatives, beginning with a refreshed Yowza!! logo and color scheme for the mobile apps and GetYowza.com portal. When combined with our traditional and viral marketing programs, we expect to see accelerated acquisition of both merchants and consumers to our platform. We also believe Spindle has reached the point where we should see our investment in our payments and Yowza!! platforms begin to generate a return on investment in the form of revenue growth, commencing in quarters three and four."

"Spindle continues to show tremendous strength in a rapidly evolving sector," explained Vikrant Gandhi, senior analyst with the market research firm Frost & Sullivan. "The fact that they added a significant number of consumers and merchants to the Yowza!! platform indicates that the company's strategy is sound and viable. As businesses become more aware of mobile commerce, Spindle will be in a strong position to convert this interest into revenue."

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
Organizations from small to large are increasingly adopting cloud solutions to deliver essential business services at a much lower cost. According to cyber security experts, the frequency and severity of cyber-attacks are on the rise, causing alarm to businesses and customers across a variety of industries. To defend against exploits like these, a company must adopt a comprehensive security defense strategy that is designed for their business. In 2015, organizations such as United Airlines, Sony...
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
