RewardStream Provides Update on Financial Services Market Segment

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Oct. 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RewardStream Solutions Inc., (“RewardStream” or the “Company”), (TSX-V:REW) (Frankfurt:JL4L) (WKN Number A2APX1) a world leader in referral marketing solutions is pleased to provide an update on the growth of their financial services market segment. RewardStream is proud to be the leading provider of referral marketing solutions to this emerging market segment.

Building off of the success of early referral programs with large brands including Envision Financial, the Company is pleased to report that is now working with over 16 different credit unions, with over a third of those companies coming on board in the last quarter. The Company now counts 3 of the largest credit unions in North America as clients. There are over 6,000 credit unions in North America, with over 1,500 in the direct target market for the Company.

“Credit unions have long counted referrals as their number one method of acquiring new customers,” said Rob Goehring, Chief Executive Officer of RewardStream. “Word of mouth and recommendations are extremely powerful factors when someone is seeking new or additional financial services. As more credit unions make the switch to online digital marketing that appeals to a broader and often younger consumer base, we are leading the transition away from their paper based referral programs into a modern, hosted software solution.”

“We are seeing an increase and acceleration in the interest levels amongst our credit union prospects and clients, which is evident through our 30% growth rate in customers over the previous quarter,” stated Buzz Hemphill, Vice President of Sales for RewardStream. “Our platform offers extensive and powerful capabilities for any sized credit union, and we have quickly become the go-to leading solution in the market. We are excited to be engaged in the sales process with well over 100 credit unions to continue to drive growth.”

Credit unions enjoy a 93% satisfaction rating amongst existing members according to a 2015 Consumer Reports article1. As a result, members are generally very happy to refer their credit union to friends and family, but have not had an easy way to do this outside of the branch. The RewardStream referral marketing solution makes it easy for a member to instantly share the credit union with friends or family via a wide range of channels from email and chat to Facebook and Twitter, from their web or mobile device.

The platform includes easy to use tools for credit union marketers to set up and manage their program, run multiple campaigns and manage the branding of the program to their specification. For each referral, the program can be configured with a variety of reward types and amounts, while maintaining strict data security, CASL and CAN-SPAM compliance.
