Furthering the understanding of how a consumer’s motivations and preferences drive lifetime value, Kobie is modernizing how brands acquire loyal members and co-brand cardholders

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA. AND PRINCETON, N.J. (PRWEB) MAY 27, 2021 — Kobie, a recognized global leader in driving enterprise value through loyalty, has acquired an exclusive license for the loyalty and co-branded credit card space to Rosemark’s Quantitative Persona™ (QP) Method. The QP Method identifies the most valuable customers in a given market based on how their motivations and preferences drive their economic value. The Rosemark team has been building and commercializing personality and persona-based tools for the last 20 years and have proven their approach consistently delivers up to a 300% increase in marketing impact over client’s standard models. Rosemark’s leaders founded, scaled and sold Rosetta, their last business, to the Publicis Groupe.

Marti Beller, President of Kobie, explained, “As consumers begin to shop, dine and travel again, brands are in desperate need of finding reliable solutions to effectively and profitably identify and reactivate their best customers.” Announcing today, Kobie addresses that need by adding the QP Method to its arsenal of loyalty solutions available in the industry leading Kobie Alchemy® Loyalty Cloud. Now brands can more effectively target and acquire the most valuable customers into their co-branded card and/or loyalty program.

“As brands emerge from COVID-19, they are asking us to help them re-identify their most valuable customers. This exclusive license from Rosemark allows us to help guarantee profitable acquisition at a time when consumer profiles have radically changed,” Wendy Culpepper, Chief Customer Officer of Kobie commented. “We already help clients understand customer’s emotional preferences through Kobie’s Emotional Loyalty Scoring (ELS®) tool, and Rosemark’s Quantitative Persona Method is an excellent complement to our toolset.”

Chris Kuenne, CEO of Rosemark added, “We have developed a deep working relationship with Kobie over the past few years and are excited to exclusively partner with a recognized leader in loyalty to apply our model and help optimize the loyalty and co-branded space.”

The new, innovative partnership fully leverages Kobie’s 31-years of loyalty experience of delivering impact to a brand’s bottom line. This acquisition comes on the heels of Kobie’s recent announcement as a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Loyalty Solutions, Q2 2021, the highest distinction in the loyalty solution evaluation process. Strategically, this license creates compelling value for Kobie’s clients and future clients, which is especially powerful at a time where customer preferences are shifting and loyalty is being re-established. Kobie is ready to help co-branded credit card issuers and loyalty marketers drive improved acquisition, utilization and economic impact. If you would like to learn more email info@Kobie.com.
