AbstractTitleValue Creation of Mobile CouponsBackgroundCoupons have been around for years in traditional paper form where they have for instance been found in grocery stores located directly by the product they offer a discount on. Lately, mobile phones have come to play a greater part of our lives where they are also getting integrated into activities we conduct. This has been of interest for the fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) industry where integration of the mobile phone has arisen to a new phenomenon: mobile coupons that can be transmitted to the mobile phone instead of using traditional paper coupons.PurposeThe purpose of this paper is to examine if and how mobile coupons can create value for Kuponginlösen and its partners.MethodEmpirical data has been collected through interviews, which in turn have been analyzed with a theoretical framework consisting of the Business Model by Amit and Zott (2001).ResultsMobile coupons provide value, not just for Kuponginlösen, but also to its partners consisting of FMCG manufacturers, convenience store chains, food chains, DLF, Mobilab, and GS1. Mobile coupons are an efficient way of distributing offers and complement traditional coupons. Although the popularity of mobile coupons will continue to increase significantly, as for today, they account for a small part of the total coupon market in Sweden.KeywordsMobile coupons, value creation, Kuponginlösen, FMCG industry, m-commerce

Abstract [sv]

AbstraktTitelMobila kupongers värdeskapandeBakgrundKuponger har funnits i åratal i traditionellt pappersformat där de exempelvis funnits i livsmedelsbutiker vid produkter de ämnar rabattera. På senare tid har mobiltelefoner blivit en viktigare del i våra liv där de även integrerats i de aktiviteter vi utför. Detta har varit av intresse för livsmedelsbranschen där integration av mobiltelefoner har lett till ett nytt fenomen: mobila kuponger som kan skickas till mobiltelefonen istället för att använda sig av traditionella kuponger.SyfteSyftet med denna uppsats är att undersöka om och hur mobila kuponger kan skapa värde för Kuponginlösen och dess partners.MetodEmpirisk data har inhämtats genom intervjuer som i sin tur har analyserats med hjälp av modellen ‘the Business Model‘ av Amit och Zott (2001).ResultatMobila kuponger skapar värde, inte bara för Kuponginlösen, utan även för dess partners som består av livsmedelstillverkare, snabbköpskedjor, livsmedelskedjor, DLF, Mobilab och GS1. Mobila kuponger är ett effektivt sätt att distribuera erbjudanden och de kompletterar traditionella kuponger. Även om populariteten av mobila kuponger kommer att öka signifikant utgör de i dagsläget en liten del av den totala kupongmarknaden i Sverige.NyckelordMobila kuponger, värdeskapande, Kuponginlösen, livsmedelsindustrin, mobil handel
