- Separate systems: Organizations often use multiple solutions to track their loyalty members’ activities and maintain their loyalty programs.
- Program tracking: Separate systems make it hard, if not impossible, to track customer lifetime value.
- Personalization: Loyalty programs are most effective when they provide the customer with personalized experiences that are based on the customer’s interactions with the organization.
- Audience targeting: Benefits, promotions, and discount vouchers are all time-tested strategies to keep the customer engaged.
- Timeliness: Organizations also struggle to engage loyalty program members at the right time. A benefit or a promotion is only useful if the customer receives it when they need it.
- Points management: Also, organizations find it difficult to debit, credit, or expire points based on the millions of customer transactions every day.
- Salesforce Loyalty Management features:
- Loyalty Foundation: Create multiple loyalty programs, each with its own set of tier groups, tiers, and currencies. Associate loyalty program member records with existing Contact or Account records.

- Partner Management: Give customers more choices by incorporating partners in your loyalty program ecosystem. With partners, customers can earn or redeem points when they purchase a partner’s products or use their services.

- When initializing a tier group you define three attributes:
- Tier period is the period after which tier assessment takes place or, to put it another way, the duration for which a newly allotted tier can be retained by a member.
- Qualifying period is the period after which a member’s qualifying points balance resets to zero.
- Tier model is an attribute that influences the start date of the qualifying period.
- Program Currencies:
- Non-Qualifying Points are based on the traditional currency system and hence can be financially quantified.
- Qualifying Points count toward a member’s tier status.
- Qualifying points can be associated with only one tier group. Though, you can have different types of qualifying points in a tier group.
- Expiration models:
- Fixed model: Each non-qualifying point in a member’s balance expires after a fixed period as specified for this point type.
- Activity model: A member’s entire non-qualifying points balance expires if there’s no member activity for the duration specified for this point type.
- Types of vouchers:
- Fixed Value: Members can use this type of voucher to receive a specific discount amount on a product or service.
- Discount Percentage: Members can use this type of voucher to receive a specific discount percentage on a product or service.
- Product or Service: Members can use this type of voucher to purchase a specific product or service.
- Types of promotions:
- Standard promotions: These reward customers immediately after they complete an activity.
- Cumulative promotions: These reward customers after they complete multiple purchases that add up to a certain amount during a specific time period.
