Fostering customer engagement with flexible rewards & loyalty programs
About the client
Headquartered in Europe, the client is a global retail market leader with a strong presence across continents. It is revered as a people-centric organization committed to maximizing customer value through innovation. Since its inception, the business has diversified into various retail formats with a commitment to play an affirmative role in regional economic development.
The client is a customer-focused organization determined to foster favorable brand perception through innovative engagement channels and improved user experience. To this end, the business has pursued a policy of running diversified customer loyalty and rewards initiatives to incentivize attachment with the brand. However, to keep up with shifting customer expectations, the company must find the right expertise to revamp the technology landscape powering its loyalty and rewards program, making it more flexible, expansive, and secure
The company has leveraged its broad presence, quality commitments, and customer-centric approach to score wins in the highly competitive retail marketplace. To adapt up with the existing business realities, the client wanted to elevate its customer loyalty and rewards program, improving retention and delivering a better user experience. The retailer wished to offer more frequent promotions tailored to specific loyalty program levels.
Nevertheless, the company’s existing IT backend capabilities were coming short in meeting the objective. Therefore, to transform, the client’s decision-makers must resolve issues like:
- Rolling out new offers, promotions, features, and functionalities with minimal downtime
- Giving customers complete visibility and easy access to their reward point balances
- Maintaining the security of promotional voucher codes delivered via the cloud
- Achieving easy scalability that can support the internationalization of the program as required
The quest for a solution led the client to PiServe, trusted across industries for its deep technical acumen, domain expertise, and business understanding.
