    • Pin code creation - we can create hundreds of thousands of unique pin codes based on specific lengths and data formats.

  • Pin code entry - algorithms for tracking provider data can be created based on prefix or sufix. Used in correlation with instant win contests.
  • Print collateral - design and print custom pieces in bulk such as package and product stickers, shelf talkers, booklets, supplier kits, etc.
  • Prize claim automation - hundreds or thousands of prizes? No need to contact them all directly. The process can be automated where a user is provided the claim form online and once filled out can email the appropriate fulfillment department/facility.
  • Reporting - custom tailored reports can be created and run as often as required with specific data gathered from the contest site.
  • Surveys - smart surveys can be created based on specific questions and can adjust based on answers.
