Value Exchange International Limited Secures Multi-Year Software as a Service Agreement With One of Asia's Largest Retail Conglomerates

Value Exchange International Ltd, a Retail Technology Company, Has Signed an Agreement With One of Asia's Largest Retail Companies for the Implementation of Their Proprietary Mobile Loyalty Software Solution

HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/10/14 -- Value Exchange International Limited (VEI), a leading technology company incorporated in Hong Kong, providing innovative digital technology solutions primarily for the retail industry, is pleased to announce they have signed a multi-year Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) with a leading Asian retail conglomerate for the implementation of their flagship Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based mobile loyalty solution.

The software is expected to service over 1,000 outlets of the leading retailer in the Hong Kong (SAR) region, which are operated and franchised under some of the world's leading international retail brands. This is the first move before eventually expanding to other associated brands and to the Greater China and the Asia-Pacific market.

Under the terms of the BPA, the services will launch in October 2014 and cover a two-year period, with term of renewal for another one year. The current agreement value of US$ 350,000 is expected to exceed US$ 5.6 million in returns if deployed at the aforementioned brand partners.

VEI's proprietary mobile Stored Value Card (mSVC) solution is an omnichannel mobile loyalty solution designed to help merchants tailor their business in countless ways to reinforce their brand image and philosophy, streamline core business processes, and enable customer-friendly policies. Offered through a SaaS architecture, the solution is easy to deploy and maintain. It further allows the integration of point-of-sale data with data gathered from mobile interactions to provide a more enhanced and valuable inventory of data that the VEI expects will be of great interest to clients, advertisers and brands.

This implementation aims to connect the leading retail conglomerate and its partners to its customers. This latest development symbolizes a key milestone for VEI following the earlier announcement of another strategic partnership with US listed payments processing company, Sino Payments Inc. (OTC Pink: SNPY) (PINKSHEETS: SNPY). With these two new developments, VEI is poised to become a worldwide leader in digital technology services among retailers.

SNPY has a strong customer base in the Point-of-Sale (POS) in the region. The merger of SNPY and VEI will add new value to the SNPY Group's retail solution offerings by enhancing the functionality of the overall retail business model. By integrating VEI's expertise in mSVC and digital technology to the SNPY Group's existing portfolio, this merger offers significant potential to harmonize the operations of all related entities. Furthermore, this new contract would not only contribute to the SNPY Group's business revenue but also to its organizational growth in the ever-evolving digital technology industry.

Kenneth Tan, CEO of VEI, proclaimed, "This deal will be a complete game changer for our mobile marketing company and an evolution in the overall checkout process. With mSVC and the use of digital rewards, we help brands and retailers track customer behavior, enabling them to deliver personalized offers to boost traffic and increase sales. We are confident mSVC will revolutionize the way uses mobile marketing and loyalty rewards for their business and act as an integral piece of their customer retention strategy."
