(19 Feb 2015) - Swipii Loyalty card launch in Stirling City Centre as part of Stirling BID trial
Award-winning loyalty company expands to Stirling, bringing their mission of empowering local businesses to the city
Swipii, the award-winning digital loyalty company has begun expanding its list of Stirling locations in collaboration with the Stirling City Centre Business Improvement District. Since launching in summer last year, Swipii has expanded to over 100 locations across London and Central Scotland.
How does it work?
Long Live Local
By earning points through repeat visits, Swipii users can earn anything from free high-fives to coffee upgrades, lunches, pampering sessions and even makeovers. Swipii's aim is to move away from 'points-for-pounds' loyalty concepts and towards crafting loyalty programmes which convey the personality and culture of independent stores, with the ultimate goal of strengthening the connection that people have with their local area, under their mantra of '#LongLiveLocal'.
Expansion into Stirling
Araf Hamid, owner of Urban Bubble said, “We’re looking forward to having Swipii in our shop. Stirling is suffering from a lot of empty shops and we need to give our locally-owned businesses a boost. I’m keen to show local shoppers that independents retailers can keep up with the times and offer something modern and fun and also get rewarded for supporting local shops”.
Swipii CEO and co-founder Chitresh Sharma says; "We are really excited about bringing Swipii to Stirling, our aim is to really empower local shops and help them grow along with their communities. We want to help businesses in Stirling bridge the gap between the physical and digital worlds and help them modernise their business, and Swipii is very easy for both customers and the shop staff to use, which means that it doesn’t intrude on the staff’s time and they can carry on doing what they do best”.

They place a tablet at the point of sale and give customers the ability to use a single card or app at all participating locations. In addition to increasing customer engagement, Swipii allows merchants to give deals to their loyal customers, as well as enter cross-promotional deals with non-competing merchants.
Swipii's mission is to help small and local shops bring their business into the 21st century. Since launching in Glasgow in Summer 2014, it has spread to more than 100 businesses and 30,000 users across Scotland and London.
