MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Quotient Technology Inc. (NYSE: QUOT), a leading digital promotions, media and analytics company that connects brands, retailers, and shoppers, today announced that its core solution, Quotient Retailer iQ™, has been awarded the Digiday Signal award for Best Retail Technology. The Digiday Signal awards honor technology platforms that bring efficiency, effectiveness and creativity to the media and marketing processes for brands, agencies and publishers. The category Quotient won is in recognition of the technology that best enhances the shopping experience, online or offline.
Quotient launched Retailer iQ three years ago to give retailers and consumer packaged goods brands a way to digitally engage with their customers, primarily through mobile devices. The platform, which connects with point-of-sale systems and analyzes enormous amounts of data in real time, is now used by leading grocery, drug, dollar, club and mass retailers, including Albertsons Companies, Dollar General, Walgreens and Ahold Delhaize. The platform helps Quotient’s partners influence millions of shoppers every day by delivering relevant and targeted promotions, personalized media messages, digital circulars and more — all with a goal of driving profitable sales and building customer loyalty.
“I’m thrilled that Retailer iQ is being recognized as technology that best enhances the shopper experience,” said Mir Aamir, President and Chief Operating Officer of Quotient. “In an increasingly competitive retail environment, Retailer iQ helps brands and retailers build invaluable one-to-one digital relationships with their customers. Our team has worked tirelessly to scale Retailer iQ, and we’re thrilled with the traction we have achieved in the marketplace.”
The platform makes it easy for shoppers to save at their favorite stores from their mobile phones. Shoppers receive personalized offers and more through retailer mobile apps and websites or through Quotient’s Coupons.com app. Quotient uses a mix of proprietary purchase data as well as online behavior data to deliver the right content to the right person at the right time.
Growth on Retailer iQ has been robust, with about 50 million shoppers — roughly 40% of all U.S. households — now registered to digital-savings programs powered by the platform. That’s up from 40 million at the end of 2016.
“This year's group of Digiday Signal Awards winners represent the very best of a vital part of our industry – marketing and advertising technology providers,” says Digiday Media CEO Nick Friese. “The third annual Signal Awards are proud to recognize these companies for their innovative solutions and their contribution to the advancement of our industry as a whole.”
The judging panel is comprised of various marketing and advertising technology experts. Winners will be honored at the Digiday Awards ceremony in New York City in November.
