Looking back on 2013, it’s great to see how far Mobeam has come. With Mobeam, and our new Beep’nGo mobile app, you will never lose that gift card from the holidays again. You don’t have to deal with wallets and purses overstuffed with loyalty cards. And you can say goodbye to those annoying membership cards on your keychain. Because of Mobeam, you can put them all right on your mobile device!
Our revolutionary beaming technology is embedded on not just one, but two of the world’s most popular phones! In March, we launched on the Samsung Galaxy S4, making it the world’s first smartphone able to beam barcodes at millions of checkout registers all over the world. In September, it was announced that Mobeam technology would also be embedded on the new Galaxy Note 3. We took second place in CTIA’s 2013 E-Tech awards for Payments, Banking, Mobile Commerce, Shopping and Rewards. And in September 2013, we launched our Beep’nGo mobile app on Google Play, which lets you keep all of your loyalty, gift and membership cards right on your smartphone. After only a few months, we’ve seen how helpful this technology is for consumers. Beep’nGo is now being used in over 160 countries, and has driven close to a million shopping trips!

While last year was incredible for our company and the thousands of you who have used Beep’nGo, we’re even more excited to see what’s in store for 2014.
Last week, the Mobeam team was at CES in Las Vegas. The 4-day event showcases over 3,000 exhibitors, a conference program with more than 300 sessions; and more than 152,000 attendees from over 150 countries. We were excited to spread the word about both Mobeam and Beep’nGo. We also loved hearing all the great feedback from people at the event and what all of you are saying online as well.
Beep’nGo customers are raving about the app and how it is saving them time and money.
Ann was grocery shopping earlier this month, when she used Beep’nGo and surprised the cashier. According to Ann, “Before the cashier finished saying, ‘what are you doing?’ the register beeped and my [loyalty] card was in.” Not only did the cashier want Beep’nGo for her phone, but so did the customer behind her!
We’ve also converted skeptics with how simple and easy Beep’nGo is to use. “I’ve worked with grocery POS systems for 30 years and I was sure this app wouldn’t work,” said one satisfied customer. “Laser scanners can’t read screen output barcodes. I skeptically entered my card in the app and took it to my office, fired up my test system and barely had my phone in front of the lane and ‘beep.’ My first reaction was ‘holy crap.’ I tried it from a handheld laser scanner and ‘beep.’ All I have to say is amazing. I have the [Samsung Galaxy] S4 and it’s great.”
Folks on social media have also been talking about how much they love Beep’nGo!
