Swych co-founders showcase simplicity, unique user experience with new mobile gifting platform
PLANO, TEXAS — SEPTEMBER 19, 2016: The Swych Mobile Gifting Platform, along with the newly unveiled Swych GiftBotTM , won the prestigious Best of Show award at the Finovate Fall 2016 conference in New York. Swych was among 71 Fintech companies selected to present at this year’s conference held September 8 and 9.
Finovate attendees previewed Swych’s new patent-pending GiftBot, a first-of-its-kind personal gifting assistant that makes gifting possible from the apps that consumers use most often such as Facebook, Skype and iMessage. The GiftBot is yet another compelling addition to the unique user experience offered by the Swych mobile gift card app currently available for both iOS and Android operating systems.
Swych co-founders Deepak Jain and Robert Sabella showcased the simplicity of mobile gift card transactions using both GiftBot™ as well as the mobile app along with the unique experiences offered by the service such as cash bonuses and instant “swyching” of a received gift to any merchant brand.
“We are honored and delighted at the appreciation for the Swych Mobile Gifting Platform from Finovate’s discerning audience and our peer innovators in the Fintech industry,” said Deepak Jain, CEO and co-founder. “This Best of Show recognition makes us even more motivated to continue innovating in our quest to reinvent the gifting experience for both consumers and businesses.”
The Swych Artificial Intelligence-enabled GiftBot provides personable conversations with users while using information from their social and professional networks to complete digital gift transactions in a simple chat session. All gift cards received from the app or GiftBot, can be redeemed, saved, or “swyched” with more than 100 popular brands offered. Discounted gift cards are also available for sale within the app so users can save on their favorite retailers and brands. Users can purchase gift cards securely using Apple Pay, Android Pay, and PayPal directly within the app and save gift cards to their Apple Wallet or Google Wallet. Plus, every purchase earns users rewards points that can be used to buy additional gift cards.
“We set out to modernize the gifting experience, making it intelligent, simple, elegant and powerful,” said Robert Sabella, co-founder and Chief Revenue Officer. “Stay tuned for even more exciting additions to our GiftBot technology, coming soon to a messaging app near you.”
