Reep, an app firm that offers consumers cash-based rewards, is to create 20 new jobs in Dublin over the next 12 months. The company, which claims it can deliver annual cash rewards worth €750 to the average family, is eyeing a European expansion.

REEP’s Rewards app reads receipts and allocates a cash reward to the consumer’s account based on the products they have purchased.

Using the REEP Rewards app could deliver an annual cash reward of up to €750 for families in Ireland.

The company is bringing together leading Irish and international brands into one loyalty programme – early adopters include Kellogg’s, Brennan’s, Heinz and Esso. The app allows consumers and client companies to interact in a convenient, cost-efficient and seamless way.

“REEP Rewards is an Irish-owned, Irish-developed platform that has taken over two years to develop,” said CEO James Lenehan.

“The global loyalty market is worth in excess of €1bn annually and we are really excited about launching the app first in Ireland.

“We are launching to the Irish market now, with a view to bringing the REEP Rewards platform to the European market within the next 12 to 18 months.

“Our business strategy is very much focused on the global market. REEP Rewards already employs 10 people and we hope to employ a further 20 staff over the next 12 months, with recruitment to begin before Christmas,” Lenehan said.
