JICC, ACP Academy Holding a Webinar :  Update on the Development of the New Industry Standard for Paperless Couponing


Coupon industry organizations (including the JICC, Association of Coupon Professionals and GS1 US, supported by agents and others in the coupon business) are currently collaborating to outline new standards and best practices.
