WeWIN's API based platform is the Rewards Program of the future for brands, fans and causes.
New York City, NY (December 04, 2014) – WeWIN, a division of New York City based commerce leader Axle Digital, has been named a bronze winner in Most Innovative Service of the Year category in Best in Biz Awards 2014, the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.
In September 2014, WeWIN introduced its innovative service that enables retailers and nonprofits to easily incorporate tangible retail rewards into cause marketing programs. WeWIN has developed the first API-based (Application Programming Interface) rewards program integrated into a mobile application.
The cause commerce platform opens doors for retailers and brands of all sizes to connect with their fans and the causes they care about. By directly integrating with retailer ecommerce systems, WeWIN provides a completely unique way for nonprofits to thank their donors and for retailers, big and small, to utilize today’s technology and partake in cause marketing efforts. It can be easily scaled and tailored to meet individual organization needs. WeWIN’s platform features geolocation capabilities allowing “mom & pop” stores and small brands to participate in major charity campaigns alongside national retailers.
The WeWIN Platform powers the rewards portion of the new American Red Cross Blood Donor App. With the successful launch of the Red Cross project under its belt, WeWIN will now roll out this service to pair more nonprofits and retailers. “We're excited that WeWIN's collaboration on the Red Cross Blood Donor app resulted in the recognition of the Rewards Platform as Most Innovative Service, Bronze Award by Best in Biz Awards,” said Matt Goldfeder, senior director, Mobile Product Development for the American Red Cross. “We look forward to new and innovative projects with WeWIN in 2015.”
Best in Biz Awards’ fourth annual North American program was its most competitive yet. As in previous years, the fourth annual program in North America featured a large and distinguished judging panel comprised of members of the media who reviewed and scored the hundreds of award nominations. More than 550 award nominations were received this year in a variety of company, executive, team, and product focused categories. Nominations were fielded from public and private companies of all sizes, from virtually every major industry and region in the U.S. and Canada.
“It is an honor to be recognized as a Best in Biz Winner alongside such esteemed technology leaders as PayPal, Toshiba, Dell, Blackberry, AT&T and Vonage,” said Syd Dufton, President & CEO of WeWIN. “We are going for the gold in 2015 with our new projects slated for this year.”
Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2014 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 53 judges from highly recognized newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, radio outlets, and analyst firms. In addition to the numerous judges returning from previous panels, this year’s 53-person judging panel included several worthy additions to this high-profile group.
