DENVER — Loyalty Methods (LM) and Western Union (NYSE: WU) recently completed the large-scale and complex project of migrating WU’s MyWU loyalty program to LM’s ReactorCX loyalty cloud platform. The project was delivered in a record eight months from start to finish and with zero downtime, parallel cutover deployment.
ReactorCX is now the system of record for the MyWU program spanning 35 countries and processing all WU loyalty transactions across the globe 24x7x365. The new system will improve customer and marketer experience for the existing program, and it will empower WU marketers to deliver fundamentally new types of initiatives at scale, in a seamless and efficient manner.
“This great success story was a testament to the strong partnership between LM and WU teams, the proven scalability and flexibility of the ReactorCX platform, and 15 years of LM’s multi-industry experience in the loyalty space.” said Emil Sarkissian, Loyalty Methods CEO, “with our innovative zero-downtime parallel cutover method, we have set a new standard of how smoothly these migrations should go.”
WU required that the project be done without any system outage or impact to their customers during the rollout. By utilizing its proven Threadsync delivery methodology, LM was able to deliver on this and many other requirements and ensure a completely seamless switch into the new platform with no downtime. The new system also contains all of the required and necessary historical and current transactional data, which was moved safely without any errors or data loss.
