Elavon, a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Bancorp (NYSE: USB) and a leading global payment solutions provider, is bringing to market Fanfare, an easy-to-use loyalty program that delivers rewards to patrons of small to mid-sized businesses right at the point-of-sale. With Fanfare, businesses can build deeper relationships with their customers by providing meaningful rewards via integrated technology. With Fanfare it is easy for consumers to sign up and track loyalty rewards via a customized website. The program automatically tracks loyalty points, rewards and offers that can be redeemed at any time. Once rewards are earned, consumers see them right at the time of purchase, eliminating the need to print coupons, carry a loyalty card or wait for a credit card statement. Businesses utilize a custom dashboard that enables them to create offers and track the success of their Fanfare loyalty program. “Fanfare is an exciting launch for us because it positions us to celebrate our customers and helps them celebrate theirs,” said Marianne Johnson, Elavon’s Executive Vice President of Global Product & Innovation. “By rewarding loyal customers, keeping them coming back and offering attractive offers to prospects, our customers can provide a rewards program that competes with their competitors.” Fanfare enables our customers to personalize and brand their own rewards and loyalty programs, putting the power in the hands of our customers. It is a secure, turnkey loyalty solution that conforms to industry standards for payment data security. Focused on innovation and celebrating customers, Fanfare is one of Elavon’s groundbreaking solutions helping to enable commerce for businesses globally. Though its initial launch is U.S. specific, plans to expand the solution into Europe are slated for later this year. Learn more about Fanfare at www.elavon.com/fanfare.
