How can an Oken - Loyalty App make you the king of the world of Shopping Malls

Introduction

Loyalty apps along with the loyalty programs are a great way to drive customer engagement. Loyalty programs, many times, on account of lacking digital-push lack visibility or engagement or both. While it can be emphasized with almost hundred percent certainty that loyalty applications are a prerequisite for the success of your loyalty program, & hence you must have them, business can have one if it fits into their scheme of things. All in all, it can prove to be an effective way to drive customer engagement.  A synergy of the loyalty app & loyalty program is what probably appeals to customers, at least that is what this Gartner report suggests.  We have seen many businesses underestimating the reach of the app stores as brand promoters & not providing complete loyalty-specific feature details in the app store description. 

In our eyes, it’s just a failure on part of brands to utilize an opportunity to promote their multi-functional app. In this blog, we are going to emphasize on how loyalty apps can prove instrumental in underpinning your shopping mall popularity. We at WovVTech have a world-renowned OKEN – a SaaS platform that powers both android and iOS app to drive your loyalty program, which we have implemented at several most-happening places & shopping destinations in the world, & we are best poised to guide you on how it can benefit your shopping mall. So, here’s to the success of your shopping mall. 

Loyalty App benefits for a shopping mall

  • It gives you a competitive advantage in your daily turn over & while attracting tenants.
  • Uncover the mysteries of your customers’ lifestyle by collecting demographic, biographic & other hidden data which can provide valuable insight.

This loyalty app also facilitates smooth, contact-less in-store engagement by offering QR code for checkouts. Here are the benefits which you get with this app.
