Perka Inc., a mobile loyalty solution for merchants, has been recognized by Fast Company as one of the 10 most innovative companies in the "Local" category.

The magazine's annual list highlights businesses whose innovations have made the greatest impacts across their respective industries, including robotics, healthcare, big data and restaurants/retail. Perka shares the 2013 shortlist with companies such as American Express, Target, Yelp and Foursquare.

"We are proud to be recognized by Fast Company as a top contributor of innovation for the local market," said Alan Chung, CEO of Perka. "Perka employs elegant smartphone applications to offer local SMBs the same capabilities and business intelligence that were previously available only to major brands and online retailers. The ubiquity of mobile technology is really leveling the playing field for local merchants."

The Fast Company announcement follows the recent introduction by Perka of an API for solution developers, and the launch of Perka Flexpoints, a more versatile mobile loyalty program designed for all types of retail/restaurant businesses. With its enterprise-class technology platform, Perka enables independent operators and regional chains alike to implement advanced mobile loyalty programs.

Since the launch of its punch card alternative in 2011, Perka has been implemented by hundreds of cafes, retail shops and small businesses across the U.S. and worldwide.
