BOCA RATON, Fla., June 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- springbig, a leading provider in cannabis CRM and loyalty marketing technology, today announced a new integration with Dutchie, the world's largest and fastest growing online cannabis marketplace. For dispensaries that use Dutchie and springbig, this new integration allows customers who are enrolled in a dispensary's loyalty program to access their available points and rewards available and redeem them directly in Dutchie, which will help businesses increase sales and improve customer retention.
Springbig and Dutchie users will now be able to redeem their loyalty points at eligible dispensaries through delivery and pick-up orders, nullifying the need to physically visit the store in order to use rewards. Consumers no longer have to transition between apps or visit the store to check the status of their rewards - all of that information will be conveniently located directly in the Dutchie app and platform.
"With delivery and pick-up gaining popularity due to our nation's new normal, the ability to view loyalty points in the delivery app is a significant advantage for both the user and the dispensary, improving user's ease of use as well as the dispensary's competitive edge," said Jeffrey Harris, springbig CEO. "Our integration with Dutchie couldn't have been settled at a more appropriate time, and we look forward to improving the relationships between dispensaries and consumers."
