NEW YORK, NY–(Marketwired – May 6, 2015) – SmartCard Marketing Systems Inc. (OTC PINK: SMKG) announces today that UBC-TV has taken the next step in its rollout by forming a joint venture with SmartCard Marketing Systems Inc., a Canadian-based technology company that has several technologies that allow companies to create, issue, activate, validate and redeem coupons and other offers in real-time on smart phones and tablets. SmartCard Marketing Systems Inc. also has location-based technology and payment systems that allow for payments via smart phones and other methods.
Max Barone, CEO of SmartCard Marketing Systems Inc., and Peggy Dodson, CEO and Founder of UBC-TV, felt this would be a great partnership for both companies.
Peggy Dodson, CEO, states, “I have always wanted a UBC VIP Club Platform where UBC viewers, subscribers and customers could earn points via social media sharing, redeem them for prizes, gifts, and trips and have the opportunity to be involved in the evolution of the network’s shows and all the UBC goodies that we are going to be giving away in the process. It’s about treating our viewers and supporters like family. The added benefit to what makes Max’s company so great is the ability to add in location-based technology and the integrated payment and real-time management system. It gives UBC the opportunity to step out not only as a media brand but a media and technology brand and that’s right in line with my vision of being futuristic and a trendsetter, in not only the entertainment industry but the technology industry as well.”
Max Barone, CEO of SmartCard Systems, states, “We are constantly searching for great opportunities and Entrepreneurs like Peggy who are dynamic and take charge. The UBC VIP Club is a great example of her vision and the opportunity it is bringing SmartCard as well as the opportunity to develop a payment and incentive combination through a media channel. The soon to be released platform will take advantage of incentivizing social networking, proximity notifications, members’ wish-lists and wallets creating great value. We look forward to a great relationship with Peggy.”
