In an arrangement with Ready Wireless, InComm will be launching its Airfair Lifeline Reload card at more than 7,000 participating 7-Eleven stores.

Lifeline is a public program for low income Americans that helps them gain telephone access, secure employment, and make and stay in contact with health services. The program provides a set number of cell phone minutes but, until now, buying additional minutes has been a complicated process. Lifeline-eligible telecommunications companies (ETCs) typically have no brick and mortar presence, making it difficult for cash-oriented program participants.

InComm_homepage.jpg
This new arrangement makes it easier for those using the program to reload their cards with additional minutes, texts, or data by paying in cash at the point-of-sale at participating 7-Eleven stores. 7-Eleven is the first national retailer to participate in the program. Others are expected to offer the product later in the year.

Fred Haumessert, co-founder and executive vice president of sales for Ready Wireless said, "Lifeline customers want to use their wireless Lifeline phone as their primary phone ... Through our partnership with InComm, we're now able to offer a universal card for all Lifeline ETCs ..."

InComm leverages its state-of-the-art, point-of-sale transaction technology to provide stored-value gift and prepaid products. Founded in 1992 and headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, InComm's CEO and President is Brooks Smith.

InComm supports more than 400,000 points of distribution and has more than 123 global and domestic patents. The company was a part of the FinovateFall 2011 show in New York.

Why waste time wondering if and when e-commerce will make brick-and-mortar retailing obsolete? Why not blend the two instead, blurring the distinction for the benefit of merchants and consumers alike?

That's the message behind InComm's new sales program that encourages customers to make online purchases of items like downloadable music and ebooks while shopping in old-fashioned brick-and-mortar retailers.

The program relies on "point of purchase marketing" and the contemporary consumer's omnipresent mobile device. Customers can use text messaging, an Internet browser, or a QR code scanner to retrieve the barcode of the digital item they are interested in purchasing. The cashier will scan the barcode at checkout, and the item can either be stored directly on the buyer's mobile device, or delivered by e-mail.

Take a look at InComm's In-Store Digital Solutions system at work.

       

The goal of the program is to provide brick-and-mortar merchants with an "expanded catalog" according to InComm In-Store Digital Solutions SVP, Thomas Corneliius. Ideally, the additional range of products available - both those traditionally bought and sold in brick-and-mortar shops and those traditionally bought and sold online - makes it that much harder for customers in a buying mood to leave the store empty-handed.

InComm was also in the news recently with the launch of its Cashtie API. Cashtime uses the merchant's current POS infrastructure to link cash payments to software applications. The company has also been active on the merger and acquisition front, buying digital gift solutions company, Giftango, for an unspecified amount in January.

InComm demonstrated its mobile commerce platform at FinovateFall 2011 in New York. See the presentation here.
