A customer can be rewarded with some benefit (e.g. a small number of bonus points) for just visiting the point of sale. This tool incentivizes the customer to make a purchase.

When the customer’s visit is detected (with the help of iBeacons and other mechanisms), they can receive a special offer (member-only goods, etc), which incentivizes a purchase.

Different types of goods accounts

Each customer can have multiple accounts (similar to bank accounts) with different “currencies”. Currencies are either bonus points or particular products and services.

Prepaid goods and services

Bonus points

Bonus points let the customer get some discount in future. The inCust system supports regular and time-limited (expiring) bonus points, and the customer can have both types of points on account at the same time.
