According to Angad Singh, a procurement specialist at Technavio for research on category spend intelligence,There is a shift in preference among consumers toward the use of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to obtain information about the products rather than point-of-purchase human interactions.

The new procurement market intelligence report analyzes some of the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

Availability of tiered reward programs that encourage customer participation

A tiered loyalty program is a form of gamification that rewards customers based on the tier and allows customers to move on to next tier by achieving pre-fixed program milestones. Tiered loyalty programs make customers feel valued and encourage customer participation, driving the program growth. 40%–45% of the loyalty programs worldwide follow a tier-based system.

Growing need for high customer relevancy of loyalty program benefits

Customers that enroll in a loyalty program expect the entire program to be relevant to their values, right from signing up to receiving communications and availing benefits. Customers also expect sellers’ communication to be one-to-one as opposed to mass messaging. A loyalty program with relevant benefits to customers can effectively increase the program membership.

Higher availability of enhanced customer data management systems

Core components of customer data management include data collection, integration of data from various sources, cleansing, and analysis to obtain the complete detail about customer interactions with the brand. Data-driven loyalty programs allow companies to provide the right message or offer to the right customer at the right time, thereby improving customer loyalty and projecting a positive brand image.
