COLLOQUY is a leader in Enterprise Loyalty with its new journal ’Enterprise Loyalty in Practice.’ This journal is the first and only publication dedicated to the innovations and people behind the game-changing strategy of Enterprise Loyalty.
"By transforming the customer experience through analytical insights, Enterprise Loyalty is traditional loyalty with a big ’L,’" said COLLOQUY Managing Partner Kelly Hlavinka. "It means going beyond traditional loyalty marketing strategies to use data in a far more holistic way — as a means towards aligning behind the unique purpose of service."
The NCDM conference is dedicated exclusively to the database marketing industry. It brings database marketing suppliers and decision makers together to find practical approaches to today’s direct marketing challenges using customer data and technology.
COLLOQUY will be leading part one of Enterprise Loyalty Day along with Precima and Best Buy’s Matt Smith. The session will begin at 9 a.m. and will discuss the opportunities presented by Enterprise Loyalty to create a better customer experience based on advanced analytics and customer insights.
Beginning at 1:45 p.m. on Dec. 13, COLLOQUY and Precima will join Delta’s Jeff Robertson for the second part of Monday’s loyalty marketing sessions. The session will include a case study and question-and-answer session by Delta Air Lines that will detail how daily interpretation of customer needs has made its loyalty plan both resilient and relevant.
After Enterprise Loyalty Day wraps up at NCDM 2010 on Monday, LoyaltyOne’s Ian Di Tullio will present, "Power of One: One Program Wins Sales, Shoppers in Multiples," on Dec. 14 at 3:30 p.m. This Sobeys’ case study presentation will detail the challenges of designing a highly targeted and vendor-supported multi-channel promotion geared to drive both sales and return on consumer investment.
