Long-term activation of Continental Opony Polska Business Partners

The competition on the market of B2B programs is high and usually the biggest challenge is the difficulty in building the expected involvement of Partners.

The ContiPartner loyalty program to support B2B sales has been on the market since 2015, but previous editions were conducted in a dispersed environment, which resulted in prolonged order lead time and little involvement of the Participants. In 2019, together with Continental’s experts, we were faced with a big challenge: rebuild the trust of the Partners, adjust the whole Program to individual needs and expectations that have changed since the beginning of the Program and maximise the activity of the Participants.

The main emphasis was put on the intuitive use of the program, because we know that in the B2B market, time spent on operating the program is one of the biggest challenges.  An important aspect was the preparation of a platform that was equally intuitive and easy to use, also with a smartphone.

Solution:

  • New ContiPartner sales support program in the B2B model was developed on an integrated platform referring to an online store, where the accumulated points are your currency.
  • New ContiPartner sales support program in the B2B model was developed on an integrated platform referring to an online store, where the accumulated points are your currency.
  • To meet the expectations of the Participants, in 2020 the integration of online payment for orders was implemented, which allowed Partners to get the prizes not only in exchange for accumulated points, but also made it possible to pay for them from their own budget. This proves that the prizes are so attractive and well-suited to the Participants’ needs that they are ready to pay for their orders additionally from their own resources.
  • In the process of recruiting new Partners, Continental own sales force was involved, and their task was to ensure that the persons representing a given company in the Program were at the same time the decision-makers and those having the greatest influence on the common business.
  • An important element of the changes was the refreshment of the creative concept and targeted communication activating Participants sent at key moments of the program depending on sales priorities. It also applies to seasonal/special events and information about new products in the prize catalogue, opportunities to earn additional points and occasional greetings.

Results:

A B2B program does not have to be complicated in its mechanics to be effective. On the example of ContiPartner we show that we have achieved the goals that are particularly important for Business Partners: fast and intuitive operation, rewards that meet business needs and trust. The effect of our actions is an increase in the registration to the Program and the activity of existing Partners, as well as a minimum number of the complaints received. The improvements in the program also contributed to a significant increase in the number and value of prizes ordered.

96% of the logged-in Participants placed at least one order. The waiting time for the prize was shortened from 25 working days (edition 2018), to 3 working days after placing an order (edition 2019), with the statutory delivery time declared to 10 working days. Compared to the 2018 edition, the number of complaints was also minimised in 2019 with a 78% decrease.

The success achieved was preceded by a detailed analysis of data, processes and, above all, market needs. We have prepared a dynamic, step-by-step plan to adjust the Program to the current needs of the Partners and its development strategy for the future, which proved to be a great success.

How to build an attractive loyalty program for a brand from the sector where the frequency of purchases among customers is low –
Vision Express

When developing the loyalty program strategy for Vision Express, a leader in its field, the challenge was to achieve as many customer-brand interactions as possible because the optician industry is characterised by low purchase frequency. Creating a comprehensive eye care program for the Members and their families, combined with all Vision Express services, was the goal we wanted to achieve. 

Solution:

  • Given the specifics of the industry in which Vision Express operates, it was important to offer an extensive program benefiting the whole family. It was necessary to ensure that the Members would be in contact with the brand as often as possible. The regular customers were offered a program that combined the complex needs of an optician store customer in one place.
  • We decided to create a program with the tools used so far by Vision Express, gathered under a common communication umbrella. Previously, the brand used many different systems to achieve its sales and marketing goals. We implemented an omnichannel platform, SAP Hybris, which unified the functioning of Vision Express brand with Vision Care.

Results:

Thanks to a reliable analysis, the applied mechanics of the program contributes to the increase in the number of visits of customers to the stores. In April 2020, at a time when online tools became particularly important, Vision Express showed the world its new e-commerce platform, with the fully integrated Vision Care loyalty program, which was a huge success.

How to achieve a 50% increase in sales through selective promotion?

The sale of the promoted products with the use of TV advertising coverage generates great interest, especially during the last days of the offer, but at the same time causes that some potential customers decide not to make the purchase due to the piled up traffic in the stores. In cooperation with one of the leading retailers in the country, we took up the challenge of using customer knowledge to identify those interested in a particular product range and increase conversion by offering personalised deals.

Solution:

  • Implementation of proprietary tool – a targeting engine that collects about websites visited by a loyalty program participant.
  • Recognising what the member is interested in at the moment. This allows us to offer a personalised offer to an identified customer in real time.

Results:

The proposed strategy of action enabled greater identification of customers and recognition of their purchase path, thanks to which it is possible to reach the people potentially most interested in the promoted offer and close the purchasing process.

Taking over the global loyalty program solution and improving it in the polish market – Decathlon

Management of the Decathlon Card loyalty program until April 2019 was carried out globally by the French team. Loyalty Point faced the challenge of taking over program management in Poland. After an earlier data audit and implementation of development systems, we have been handling the CRM system for the Decathlon Card loyalty program since 1 April 2019.

Solution:

At the beginning of the project, an audit of the loyalty program managed by the French team and the segmentation of Decathlon customers using the Card was conducted. On the basis of the analyses carried out, LP proposed to improve some of the processes related to point calculation and voucher generation/sending to the Customers. The basic mechanics of the program did not change – the main goal was to maintain the program based on the CRM activities carried out earlier.

The implementation on our side included:

  • integration of the systems into the French FTP
  • implementation of data exchange processes
  • creation of point calculation and voucher generation processes

Results:

Currently, the team is working on advanced business data analytics, deepened customer segmentation and creation of automatic communication paths, as well as implementation of personalised targeted communication. A new loyalty program strategy has been developed based on the basic mechanics, expanded with additional options, putting the consumer at the centre of attention. The customer decides how the points collected on their Card are to be spent. They can exchange them for any of the services available in the Decathlon ecosystem or take advantage of a well known cash voucher.
