NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lyoness America today announced the successful integration of its Lyoness iPhone 5 App, available as a free download in the Apple Store. (Previous versions of the iPhone App 3 through 4s continue to be supported by the iPhone App, and a free Android App also is available.) The iPhone and Android Apps provide a rich shopping environment for Lyoness Members to locate and shop with Lyoness North American Loyalty Merchants.
The Lyoness iPhone 5 and Android Apps give Members location-based assistance finding Lyoness Loyalty Merchants throughout the U.S. and Canada. Members also have 24/7 access to the robust Lyoness Web Portal, empowering Mobile Shopping and giving Lyoness Members access to redeem Mobile Vouchers and Bonus Discounts.
"We recognize mobility to be the future of retail consumerism," said Lyoness Chief Executive Officer Mario Hoffmann from the Lyoness New York City offices. "Lyoness was an early adopter of online portals when we entered the European market nearly a decade ago, but our commitment to online resources has more to do with empowering consumerism than it does our commitment to technology. We want to provide the opportunity for our Members to enjoy our Cashback savings while at the same time increasing the value of Lyoness to our more than 20,000 Loyalty Merchants worldwide. A lot of people seem to agree we've accomplished our goal: Users give the Lyoness App their highest rating of '5 Stars.' We are committed to providing our Members the opportunity to shop simply and conveniently, regardless of the platform they choose," Mr. Hoffmann said.
Lyoness Director of Marketing and Communications Myrna Vaca says the Lyoness iPhone App was expected to migrate seamlessly to the iPhone 5 platform. "When the Lyoness App was first submitted to Apple for review, it was designed to adapt effectively with future iPhone models. Nevertheless, we retest the App with each generation of the iPhone, and it performs beautifully on the new retina display!"
Lyoness America Chief Operating officer Angela Schadl says, "We like to think of the Apps as a cockpit for our Members. They are out there, flying around in their busy lives, and we want Lyoness to be at their fingertips. For instance, if they are on a trip and need to find a Lyoness Loyalty Merchant quickly, it's a cinch with their smart phone."
Mario Hoffmann agrees, saying, "The Apps represent more than Lyoness' commitment to Member Satisfaction. The Apps help them manage their busy lives, getting more done in less time. Members tell us they love being able to shop from their phone with Lyoness!"
Lyoness America is a member of the worldwide family of Lyoness international. Already successful in Europe—Lyoness International is headquartered in Austria—and more than 37 countries worldwide, Lyoness America launched U.S. operations at its 6,000 sq. ft. offices in New York City's Empire State Building more than two years ago, and Lyoness Management Americas (the support arm for Lyoness America) recently opened its new 15,000 sq. ft. facility on Brickell Avenue in Miami.
