FISHKILL, N.Y., May 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Virtual Incentives, an industry pioneer in digital reward fulfillment for leading global brands, today launched its innovative Application Programming Interface (API) for rewards and incentives. The new scalable API builds on the company's commitment to constant innovation and nimble use of their end-to-end reward platform technology. The API offers greater efficiencies from initial implementation all the way to instant, personalized reward delivery.
"Everything we do is based not only our depth of experience in the incentives industry, but also on direct feedback we receive by listening to our customers," said Jonathan Price, CEO of Virtual Incentives. "In fact, one thing we hear from clients again and again is that they love the seamless and turnkey integration of the Virtual Incentives API into existing systems. This newest technology is designed to take that solution to the next level."
Virtual Incentives client and Manager of Client Services at AutoHook, Logan Dybdahl, said, "The flexibility of the ordering API has allowed our incentive-based business to grow exponentially."
The new Virtual Incentives API is part of the company's complete rewards platform, which provides a complete solution from company-side program development all the way to private, secure, instant reward delivery. The latest release of the API helps companies implement their application, loyalty platform or procurement system directly with Virtual Incentives.
