NEW YORK, NY, September 11, 2013 -- Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. (OTCQB: SRCO) announced today that its subsidiary, Specialty Reports, Inc. (SRI), has entered into a strategic partnership with More Than Rewards, LLC, a leading provider of web-based customer loyalty and rewards programs for over 1,900 motorcycle and powersports dealers. Through the new partnership, current Specialty Mobile App dealers will get the competitive advantage of having a loyalty program integrated with their mobile solution.
The relationship enables SRI's Specialty Mobile Apps division, already the preeminent provider of custom mobile apps for Harley-Davidson dealerships and other brands, to offer their dealer's customers access to the More Than Rewards loyalty program technology via their smart phones. Consumers will benefit greatly because they will be able to check their reward accounts through their mobile device any time, and receive instant rewards for products they are looking to purchase.
Anthony Havens, CEO of Sparta, explained, "When a consumer visits a dealer, and uses the dealer's Specialty Mobile App, they'll be able to select any product they're interested in buying on their smart phone or tablet. Then, the customer will be able to view what discounts or other rewards are available, and receive those rewards as the purchase is made."
"Another advantage of this 'in the palm of your hands' benefit to the consumer," Havens added, "is that the rewards or discounts are apparent before the purchase is made. Your mobile app can now become a marketing vehicle inside your store for every customer with a smart phone."
"Given the explosive growth of mobile technology among consumers, more retailers in the powersports industry are adopting mobile apps to communicate with their customers," Havens said, "and we are excited to offer even more value for our dealers using our proven mobile platform."
