RWU Students Bring Mobile App to Bristol Businesses

Bristol, RI February 12, 2014- Popular Bristol establishments are participating in a local Twitter scavenger hunt hosted by students at Roger Williams University. The scavenger hunt is part of a month-long campaign organized by five RWU students to promote the personal payment service, Popmoney.

Fiserv’s Popmoney*, a digital social person-to-person (P2P) payment service that allows people to securely send, request and receive money from their existing bank account using an email address 
or mobile phone number. Throughout the Bristol area and the RWU campus, there are stickers that read, “Pay People with Popmoney” in the windows of participating stores. In order to participate in the Twitter scavenger hunt, one must find the locations with the Popmoney sticker via hints from the RWU_PRSSA Twitter account, take a picture with the logo and tweet it with the hashtag, #popmoneyRI. Whoever locates all of the stickers and tweets them with the hashtag, #popmoneyRI will win the competition. 

The students hosting this scavenger hunt to inform people of the locations where the mobile app can be used. “We really would like the RWU community to know how beneficial this app for college students. If I went out to eat in Bristol, I could pay my friend for my half of the dinner with Popmoney. It’s completely secure!” says team member Jamie Warner. 

The Bateman Competition is a national case study competition hosted by the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). Each year, schools across the country create public relations campaigns during the month of February for the same client. This scavenger hunt is just one of the many events that the RWU Bateman Team is hosting.
