The acceleration of digital transformation has led to fierce competition, challenging enterprises to stand out and retain customers.

Loyalty is now a business-critical growth strategy that can help enterprises address these challenges, including creating unique one-to-one interactions across every touchpoint. Adweek reports that personalization can reduce acquisition costs by as much as 50 percent, lift revenue up to 15 percent, and increase marketing spend efficiency as much as 30 percent.
