iBonus is chosen by of U.S. Army and Joyalukkas Jewelry.
iBonus is a payment & loyalty system for business owners. iBonus Server and Terminal form the body. iBonus Display, a Self-service Reward Redemption kiosk, is an embellishment to the piece. Retailers manage reward schemes and categorize gifts on iBonus Display for automated redemptions. In addition to managing loyalty schemes, it creates a new channel to broadcast advertisements to potential customers.
iBonus Payment and Loyalty System was started in 2001. Instead of using magnetic stripe card, a “Novelty” became the choice for loyalty and gift cards. Merchants have been using magnetic stripes for decades. They are low in cost and suitable for mass distribution. However, this architecture relies on a real time network and server to operate. Unrestricted card data access causes serious fraud problem too.
Recent contactless smart card technology was chosen for iBonus. Prepaid and point balances are encrypted and protected on card’s memory. Authorize, cipher and update; regardless of network status, a transaction completes in 0.5 seconds when a card is waved over. A distinct system design was adapted to suit this offline transaction characteristic.
iBonus presents a simple and easy set up solution. Sophisticated transaction processing, primitive smart card communication and comprehensive card management are encapsulated. A ready-to-go loyalty system is right out of the box. Launching a contactless smart card payment & loyalty system is as easy as turn on a terminal.
