Mobile Community Platform
July 31, 2012: Chinook Book now has the ability to publish custom-branded mobile coupons for partners looking to offer the convenience and power of mobile without incurring the cost of building their own app.
The Chinook Book Mobile Community Platform can host exclusive offers, resources and branding for partners and provide back-end data at a fraction of the cost of a stand-alone system.
Chinook Book is a pioneer in mobile coupons. Chinook Book for iPhone launched in 2010 and the Android version in 2011. Chinook Book now has mobile offers from over 2,000 merchants in five cities, along with more than 45,000 mobile users who have redeemed over 100,000 mobile coupons.
The Community Platform offers simple offer staging, flexible branding and robust usage reporting.
Ease with security
Chinook Book mobile coupons are both extremely easy to use while providing usage limit controls for merchants and partners. Chinook Book uses a non-reversible visual recognition process for controlling single uses of mobile coupons without requiring devices to have a wireless signal. This means Chinook Book mobile coupons can be used anywhere, with or without a wireless signal, and on almost any iOS or Android device (including devices without wireless contracts, such as the iPod touch and iPad).
Innovative rewards, benefits & incentives
The Chinook Book Mobile Community Platform lets a community partner provide flexible rewards, benefits or incentives. Want to reward community members for a certain behavior? Want to add a cool new benefit? The Chinook Book Mobile Community Platform can do it all.
While each Community Platform implementation is customized, all we need are branding elements and a set of offers. Provide your own offers, or we can provide them for you from our more than 2,000 in inventory.
How it works
The first two partners using the Chinook Book Mobile Community Platform are Portland General Electric's green power program in Oregon, and Xcel Energy's Windsource program in Colorado and Minnesota. Both programs combined will offer mobile coupon rewards to over 120,000 residential purchasers of renewable energy. The mobile coupons are redeemable at local businesses that also purchase green power, and they will include customized branding for the respective green power program.
