St. Petersberg, FL, (March 14, 2023) — Kobie, a global leader in loyalty marketing, announced today that it has been named a Leader in “The Forrester Wave™️: Loyalty Technology Solutions, Q1 2023” Report. The Forrester report, which was released today, evaluated 12 companies that offer loyalty technology solutions. The research categorizes these companies as Leaders, Strong Performers and Contenders based on their current offering, approach to the market (strategy), and market presence.
Kobie was cited as one of the three Leaders in the space and scored the highest possible score in eight criteria of the evaluation categories including, Member Preference Management, Program Definition and Structure, Fraud Management, Marketer User Experience, Emotional Loyalty Measurement, and Program KPI Measurement.
Forrester stated in the report that Kobie, “offers loyalty solutions that focus on driving both short-term customer engagement and long-term brand devotion,” and noted that “with a full suite of technical and strategic services, Kobie offers some of the strongest services support in this evaluation.” The report also stated that Kobie has a clear vision grounded in building loyalty across the customer lifecycle, articulates strategic preparedness for emerging trends, and high client retention, as some of the reasons for securing Leader status.
Specific to Kobie’s technology platform, Kobie Alchemy® Loyalty Cloud (KALC), Forrester stated its strength is in the “program structure and loyalty measurement capabilities” and that “KALC also excels at measuring program KPIs” and “it offers benchmarks for loyalty marketers to track performance against.”
