What is Emergo’s contactless loyalty?
The customer loyalty solution we offer converts customer payment cards and devices into loyalty cards, eliminating the need for separate loyalty cards or paper stamp cards. It is contactless. This means there’s no need to shell out to create a fancy app that your customer has to download and you have to keep upgrading. In fact, there’s not much effort required on your part at all. You just have to decide whether you want to install it and once you’ve done that, we do the rest.
Our loyalty programme also has a gamification feature. This is where you set games to appear for customers that offer the chance of a reward. This creates excitement for the customer and can offer a discount for repeat visits prompting increased return rates.
With Emergo contactless loyalty, you can decide what incentive to give and when to give it. You can run as many brand loyalty campaigns as you want, whenever you want. Features also include access to invaluable insights to analyse which loyalty campaign is working best and customer loyalty campaigns can be customised to match your branding.
How much does your contactless customer loyalty solution cost?
Our contactless loyalty programme comes as a free add-on with our payment systems. We simply take a percentage of any discount you apply.
How do I set up Emergo’s contactless loyalty solution?
