SheerID’s technology allows retailers to offer exclusive discounts, special offers, or memberships to a targeted segment of consumers.
Eugene, Ore.– June 26, 2013 – – Today SheerID, the leading provider of online verification technology, announced the launch of its first responder verification platform. In addition to verifying military, college students, teachers, and associations online, via mobile, or at POS, SheerID can now verify emergency medical technicians, paramedics, firefighters, and federal or local police officers. SheerID’s technology allows retailers to offer exclusive discounts, special offers, or memberships to a targeted segment of consumers.
“AFEyewear.com has been offering an exclusive military discount since 2008 and after the success of the program and feedback from customers, we wanted to extend the discount to additional communities,” explains Dr. Dhavid Cooper, AFEyewear.com co-founder and Doctor of Optometry. “Utilizing the validation services of SheerID, we are now able to provide our discount to all who serve, including our first responders. This is a great opportunity for us to show our support to our military members as well as first responders.”
SheerID’s new verification solution will make it possible for more companies to expand their discount programs to include first responders. “I’m thrilled that businesses like AFEyewear.com can now confidently offer exclusive discounts to all of our hometown heroes,” says Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. “I hope that more businesses will create special offers for first responders now that it’s possible to ensure that only those who truly qualify can take advantage of businesses’ generosity.”
