About Cimbal:

Cimbal® is a software based transaction system. Cimbal’s software turns a mobile device into a high powered scanner capable of scanning Cimbal’s two-dimensional bar codes from any presentation format including LCD screens, card terminal readers, televisions, and printed materials to expand the point-of-sale to any medium.

Cimbal “transactions” may include (i) secure authentication and login; (ii) loyalty & reward capture; (iii) targeted coupons and discount offers; (iv) payments; (v) e-receipts and much more, all via one easy to use “app.” Best of all, Cimbal can be used in store, online and person to person, in a simple, consistent user experience. Cimbal is entirely software based so no terminal or card reader hardware is required, allowing parties to get more utility out of their existing technology investment, promoting faster consumer adoption and easier deployment by merchants.
