Pollard Banknote to Showcase Interactive Loyalty Experience at NASPL Annual Conference

WINNIPEG, Sept. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Pollard Banknote Limited (TSX: PBL) ("Pollard Banknote") is excited to present a compelling demonstration of its PlayOn® player engagement solution with its partner, Stellar Loyalty, at the North American Association of State and Provincial Lotteries ("NASPL") Business Development and Product Innovations Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, from October 4 to 6, 2016.  

Pollard Banknote's approach to player loyalty is much more than a rewards/points system. Our PlayOn® player engagement solution is designed to generate unprecedented omni-channel engagement, targeted loyalty marketing and sophisticated analytics to inspire the next generation of results-oriented customer loyalty programs. PlayOn® leverages state-of-the-art technology and a 'mobile-best' development approach that will give lotteries an opportunity to engage players—particularly a younger, tech-savvy demographic—in new, meaningful ways.

The solution delivers actionable insights by leveraging the Stellar Consumer Relationship Cloud applications and platform. Its modular design makes it easy to set up the platform to meet the specific needs of today, as well as configure additional functionality as program requirements evolve. Ultimately, PlayOn® is the most functionally-rich loyalty and engagement platform on the market, built to help lotteries reward, engage and interact with players like never before.

The immediate, real-time nature of the solution makes it an easily customizable, future-proof product that grows with the lottery and changes with advances in technology and consumer expectations. The PlayOn® player engagement solution doesn't just store big data, but acts upon it and evolves in response to that wealth of information. This flexibility and ease of scalability makes for a dynamic program that will always be robust and relevant.

To fully experience the capabilities of Pollard Banknote's PlayOn® player engagement solution, powered by Stellar Loyalty, delegates can visit the Pollard Banknote booth for a demo of the PlayOn® mobile app.  Keeping with this year's conference's theme, "E is for Experiential!", the demonstration will offer a hands-on augmented reality experience which will allow attendees to engage with fun selfie filters and enter for a chance to win exciting prizes!

Pollard Banknote's relationship with Stellar Loyalty—the world's most technologically advanced loyalty software company—brings lotteries an industry-best player engagement solution that is designed to enrich the way lotteries interact with players. The PlayOn® solution leverages the latest advancements in mobile-best, big data computing to streamline the way lotteries engage with players in the digital space–creating effective, personalized and timely communications and incentives to support lotteries in their efforts to acquire and retain loyal players.
