PassHound Serves Up Apple Passbook Passes and Streamlines the Entire Process
PassHound has today announced the availability of dedicated enterprise server solutions for businesses hoping to take advantage of Apple's iOS Passbook feature.

PLEASANTON, Calif., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Online Sources (PRWEB) 14, January 2013 – PassHound, an innovative service provider in the technology industry, has today announced the debut of dedicated enterprise server solutions vital to any company hoping to make use of Apple's Passbook.


PassHound is a comprehensive set of building blocks to enable the rapid creation and deployment of Apple Passbooks. Passbook users can design their passes using the PassHound graphical interface designer to visually design the end Passbook product with no programming needed. The enterprise server solution from PassHound offers companies their own cloud-based server stored in the PassHound cloud, a subdomain, necessary certificates and a custom-branded version of the web services. For clients who aren't technology-oriented, all the servers are completely managed by PassHound.

Enterprise servers come in four configurations, with prices starting at $399.99 (plus a user charge):

  • Small 1GB (1 CPU)
  • Medium 8GB (2 CPUs)
  • Large 16GB (3 CPUs)
  • Extra Large 32 GB (4 CPUs)

Mark Reid, Software Director for PassHound, said, "Developing the platform to deploy a single pass is months of work. For companies that don't have the time or budget, PassHound offers a turnkey solution that will have you distributing loyalty cards to your customers in days, not months."

PassHound software offers a complete suite of tools to get customers up and running quickly. These include:

  • Template Share – Share templates with the community by simply clicking the Share button in the template designer. Once shared, others can use the work as a basis for their Passbook templates.
  • Template Designer – Clients can use the WYSIWYG Template Designer to lay out their design. Once done, they can use the template to create personal passes for mass distribution.
  • Pass Designer – Pass Designer is another WYSIWYG tool used to populate templates with information. After completing a pass, users can click Send Pass to send the pass via email or SMS.
  • Email Designer – Email Designer allows users to send customized email messages along with passes. As an added touch, users also have the option to send an image of the pass to view before installation.

What Is Passbook?

The role of Passbook is to organize coupons, e-tickets, promotions and gift cards right on an individual's mobile device. Passbook is a convenient alternative to plastic cards, with a built-in management system that includes location and time-based alerts, so when users walk by their local mall, passes automatically appear on their phone when needed. This shift in engagement between the merchant and the consumer has the potential to significantly increase business opportunities for merchants and engage their customers.
