GameIQ Spins Up Executive Team and Board of Directors
Global Market Opportunity for Spindy Attracts Sleight of Industry Leaders
GameIQ, Inc., the creator and developer of the Spindy app, announced new executive team members and four new appointments to its Board of Directors. Spindy is a unique rewards and loyalty program that uses gamification to make the post-purchase experience fun and exciting. Retailers partner with Spindy to offer instant cashback to their shoppers. Consumers open the app, are enticed by the 1% to 100% cashback offers at participating retailers, make a purchase, upload their receipt, and spin the Spindy wheel to see how much cash they instantly get back.
During this pandemic, building a digital relationship with customers is more important than ever. Not only are consumers looking to stretch their budgets further, but the inability to conduct promotions both in-store and in-person, along with the need for hands-free transactions, has created a market that’s ripe for a rewards and loyalty program like Spindy.
“Prior to the pandemic, we were very excited to see the returns retailers were gaining from adopting Spindy in Southern California”, said GameIQ Founder and CEO Balazs Wellisch, “we are thrilled to be able to attract such a talented team of accomplished executives to guide and execute our growth nationally an eventually internationally”.
Spindy has been successful in driving higher purchase frequency and average purchase for Quick Service Restaurants such as Carl’s Jr. in San Diego.
