Testimonial

“This innovative cashback loyalty scheme by CRM.COM allowed us to grow our cardholder base which subsequently increased cards spending at our partners’ premises while at the same time delivering tangible rewards at the point of sale. Additionally, through the functionalities offered, the loyalty scheme enabled us to make the right proposition each time to our customers and boost spending at partner companies via promotional activities. Furthermore, it allowed us to expand our merchant business and enhance our relationships with our business partners who benefit from increased sales and a loyal customer base.”

Challenge

Fierce competition in the Greek banking sector fueled by a growing number of financial institutions offering a wide range of attractive products and services, posed a serious customer acquisition and retention problem for Eurobank. The bank felt that they were no longer as efficient at increasing and retaining their share of customers’ wallets as in the past.

Solution

CRM.COM designed and implemented a modern cashback-based solution to achieve the following:

  • Retain existing cardholders
  • Increase the number of new cardholders
  • Increase the bank’s share of customers’ wallets
  • Develop relationships with business partners / merchants
  • Become the most people-centric bank in Greece

Results

Today, Eurobank uses CRM.COM to manage a cashback-based loyalty scheme called Eurobank Epistrofi with 6+ million cards, 20+ million award transactions per year and 8,500+ participating merchants. All this without having to employ expensive IT resources or multiple different software.

Unlike traditional bank-funded loyalty schemes that typically offer low cash returns, Eurobank Epistrofi has the ability to offer much higher cashback, often double digit, as merchants drive more and more traffic to their outlets.

Since the implementation, Eurobank has seen an increase in cardholder spending and new customer acquisition. Thus, Eurobank was able to save on the investment required to operate a traditional, card issuer-funded loyalty scheme by passing the cost of rewarding cardholders to the merchants.

Banking Bliss!
