Custom Loyalty Programs
A loyalty program from Encore profits your company in three vital ways.
Ease of Development — By leveraging our 30 years of experience, you'll get the right program for your business, deployed smoothly and professionally.
Enhanced Customer Loyalty — Encore provides "premium currency" to your customers that can only be spent on your products. More buying power makes them happy, and more spending pleases you.
Enhanced Profitability — A world-class loyalty program can significantly boost your company's profitability. Let Encore demonstrate how to add 7-8 figures to your bottom line.
Encore has assembled a team of professionals — from four continents and a dozen nations — that is unmatched in our industry for talent, passion and commitment to excellence. You'll feel the "Encore difference" the moment you enter our corporate headquarters, or visit our award winning customer care centers. Encore stresses both a top-down and bottom-up approach to client service that ensures our entire organization is focused on your company's success.
As a new partner company, you will be provided a dedicated client service executive who oversees your entire relationship with Encore.

He or she is supported by a deep bench of specialists within our business development, marketing, catalog and web design, information systems, accounting, customer service and quality assurance departments.
Working together, these dedicated professionals help ensure your experience with Encore is not only profitable, but also smoothly orchestrated. Our Partner Support team members are in-turn supported by Encore's Senior Management team.

Study A: Cautious E-Tailer
Encore "Partner A" is an e-tailer with a highly visible and successful brand. They were naturally cautious about the use of this brand by third parties, and were sensitive to whether their customers' buying habits would be impacted by the additional purchase of a loyalty program. Adhering to Partner A's strict standards for program design, Encore launched its loyalty program on a test basis. The company carefully monitored the program's early economic performance, as well as backend feedback from their customers. Delighted with the test results, "Partner A" accelerated the full rollout of their loyalty program. This company now represents one of Encore's largest clients, budgeting 8 figures of incremental commission revenue from Encore in 2009.
Study B: Well-Known Catalog Merchant
Encore "Partner B" is a well-known catalog merchant employing both offline (inbound telemarketing) and online sales of specialty merchandise. Encore developed a custom loyalty program that extends the "look and feel" of this partner's distinctive branding. A cornerstone of this effort is the printing and fulfilling by Encore of a branded program catalog to each new member. This catalog includes free merchandising content for the partner and "premium currency" for the member that drives future sales of core products. Unlike Encore's competitors, this premium has no "breakage" elements, and can be used within minutes at an Encore-built and hosted partner microsite. Additionally, Encore wrote the scripts to be read by the call center sales reps, and developed all website creative. This program has added high 7 figures of incremental revenue to the partner's offline and online marketing channels.
