uKoo (“uku”, Hawaiian for Gift or Reward) is an NFC application for a Digital Loyalty Rewards Card. You can’t get any closer to an actual Punch Card than this.
Only 2 things needed for uKoo… An Android Phone and an NFC Tag (Very Cheap, you can get 20 (NTAG213) for $20.00 on Amazon) You can download a Free NFC Tag Writer like NFC Tools (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wakdev.wdnfc) and write the text to the tag. No expensive hardware or Internet based tracking software required. You can’t get any closer to an actual Punch Card than this.
As a Store Owner you would program a Tag with your Store Name. Here is a quick video that demonstrates how to Write an NFC Tag, they are showing how to Write a URL to the tag, but doing Text is the same concept. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtzMie4U8RM FYI, this is not my video.
As a Customer, you would download the App and Tap the Tag to register it with the app and get your first Credit.
Each Tap on the paired NFC Tag earns 1 credit. Once the “FREE” item is redeemed, the card clears to start over.
Only 3 icons needed to customize for your store. Not Punched, Punched and Punched Free. You could use a Coffee cup, Sandwich, Ice Cream Cone, Car Washes, Oil Change, Muffins, Haircut, … You get the idea; the possibilities are endless.
Store Owner – Program NFC tag with your Store Name – It would be best to write another TAG that has a link to the uKoo App on Google Play ( https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.soboapps.punchcard ) as well to make it easy for your customers.
Do you want it personalized? Please contact me to discuss.
The customer would install the app and Tap the NFC tag. The Store Name will automatically be displayed.
