RMS + nData Services: AI 8112 Digital Couponing for Pharmacies
Retail Management Solutions announces the deployment of new capabilities that will enable their retail customers to accept AI 8112 digital coupons.
For Immediate Release:
Retail Management Solutions Announces Partnership with nData Services, Enabling AI 8112 Digital Couponing for Pharmacies
Lacey, WA, June 23rd, 2023 – Retail Management Solutions (RMS), point-of-sale provider for independent, independently-owned chain, outpatient, and community pharmacies, announced the deployment of new capabilities that will enable their retail customers to accept AI 8112 digital coupons.
Utilizing delivery, clearing and settlement technologies supported by nData Services, pharmacies using RMS point-of-sale solutions can offer digital promotions in-store or online that can be redeemed through Coupon24, a digital couponing application. Pharmacy customers simply download the app, register, and scan QR codes with the cameras on their smartphones. Multiple coupons can be selected for redemption and the app will generate a single QR code for use at the register.
For retailers utilizing 8112 digital couponing through RMS and nData, benefits include real-time validation of coupons at the point-of-sale, electronic tracking of redemption, automatic transfer of files for reconciliation, and faster payment of monies due. nData’s technologies also enable independent retailers to access promotions, through product managers, to which they may not have traditionally had access.
Hartig Drug, an independently-owned chain, headquartered in Dubuque, IA, recently piloted RMS’ integration with nData’s 8112 digital couponing technology. Director of Business Operations and Analytics, John Freund, said of the program,
“We are thrilled to introduce this cutting-edge 8112 digital coupon technology, enabling our customers to discover savings on new and familiar products.”
Samuel Jonas, nData’s CEO and Co-Founder, said,
“8112 digital coupons are a revolution in digital promotions and are especially valuable for independent retailers, allowing them to access the best manufacturer offers available in the market.”
RMS CEO, Brad Jones, echoed these sentiments, stating,
“8112 digital couponing is a great way for independent retailers to gain a competitive edge over corporate chains. Using this program there is a great opportunity to increase average ticket size, attract more customers and improve revenue overall.“
About 8112 Digital Coupons
In 2020, the Application Interface (AI) 8112 standard was introduced with the goal of replacing paper coupons with serialized digital coupons in a mobile-first, direct-to-consumer format. 8112 digital offers can be scanned with a smartphone’s camera, sent to consumers by text, or pushed to mobile apps through product managers. Coupons can then be redeemed by any retailer connected to the centralized offer database hosted by The Coupon Bureau, with a simple scan of a QR code from the consumer’s smartphone.
8112 digital coupons provide consumers with convenient access to greater savings, while providing retailers with real-time validation, an automated submission and reconciliation process, reduced fraud, increased revenue, and rapid payment.
nData Services is committed to supporting the delivery, clearing and settlement of AI 8112 digital offers with the newest promotional technologies, providing rapid retailer funding, expanded data insights, and a superior consumer experience with the Coupon24 digital wallet. Founded by payment professionals with an understanding of settlement at scale and the needs of independent retailers, nData provides a new option for retailers by acting as a ‘Service Bureau’ assisting thousands of independent retailers to participate and reap the benefits of 8112 technology.
