How Does It Work?


The way SmartSlip™ works is as easy as 1, 2, 3…


  1. Purchase a product: Customers buy their favourite items.

  3. Reward in Real-time: SmartSlip™ technology validates whether the purchase was made and, if so, can send out an instant reward.

SmartSlip™ uses patented technology to identify actionable data on your customer's till slip.

If you believe this is solely about running competitions, think again. With features ranging from on-pack codes to comprehensive dashboards, product surveys, and loyalty rewards, SmartSlip™ offers a multifaceted toolkit for marketers.


Its optical character recognition (OCR) technology, once a user opts in, learns more about shoppers by analyzing till slip data, revealing shopping location, items, and spending. This aids in improved campaign targeting and sending users promotions that are relevant to their needs.


Brands can run a promotional campaign via multiple different retailers across the country, verify that the correct purchase was made, and use the dashboard to learn in real-time which products sold well in which store as they watch the entries roll in.


Brands like Megabuild, Heineken, and Spar have already adopted the SmartSlip™ technology with significant success. With thousands of entries in short campaign durations, it's proven to be quite the crowd-pleaser.


V5 Digital recently assisted Heineken in leveraging the SmartSlip™ technology for their UEFA Champions League promotion. Through an intuitive chatbot integration, participants were prompted to simply snap a photo of their till slips, which had to include a purchase of Heineken products from participating stores.


Once uploaded via WhatsApp, the chatbot verified the submission against the competition criteria and automatically entered the participant into a drawing for a chance to win 1 of 10 Home Entertainment Systems.


The campaign was a resounding success, featuring not just an easier entry process but also an interactive and highly engaging experience for Heineken consumers. To further incentivize participation, the chatbot even sent out broadcast messages throughout the promotional period. This modernized approach not only eliminated the need for physical entry slips but also allowed for efficient data collection and disqualification of duplicate entries.
