Are you fed up of rooting through your purse to find the tatty piece of card with the stamps in order to get that much needed cup of coffee? Or do you like me, have several half-used ones which have fallen down the back of a cupboard?
Local entrepreneurs at B-Spoke IT might have just the answer to those bulging purses and forgotten cards. A first in the UK, a new app called ALLIOP (literally All In One Place) can be downloaded for free from the App store (Android and iOS) and you can collect your favourite loyalty points on your phone.
By the magic of something a bit techy and very clever called beacon technology, the shops can add your loyalty points on in a jiffy. So far some of our favourite shops in town are taking part. Illustrated Living are offering their loyalty scheme on the App, as are The Cornish Food Box, Mustard and Rye, Xen Noodle Bar and Plum Boutique. More shops are being added as well.
I couldn’t resist being part of this new technological brain-wave so, you’ll find Secret Truro on there too. I might not have a loyalty scheme, but who knows what possibilities this might open up!
At the moment it’s only available in Truro, so let’s lead the way and show the rest of the UK that we’re ahead of the curve!
Its easy to download and use – so why not support the local retailers and give it a whirl!
If you are a retailer, cafe or restaurant and want more information go to the Alliop Website where there is a contact button, or use social media.
