Loyalty Membership Management

Enroll and Manage Loyalty Members

Loyalty Managers can review the comprehensive loyalty member records starting from the membership number, tier level, status, point balances and lifetime points. You can easily view members’ past tier levels, transaction history, voucher availability and point items. Simplified and guided points redemptions make it easy to redeem points for rewards.

Membership enrollment, referral and all other membership information is also available through REST API, so you can use the information available on a variety of touchpoints, such as point of sale, web sites, mobile apps, and many others.

Loyalty Program

Create Loyalty Programs

Define one or more loyalty programs or reward schemes as needed for your brand or group of brands. For each loyalty program, you can create point types and define point expiry rules. You can also define different point types to track different member activities. For each program, you can define tier levels for programs, associate any accrual or redemption partners, and define products and services for redemption with their redemption value in points.

You can also create attributes, metadata used in loyalty promotions to evaluate whether a transaction earns rewards, and actions that give rewards. Rules using attributes and actions are very flexible, allowing you to achieve maximum business innovation.

Loyalty Promotions

Create Promotions

Loyalty promotions are at the heart of the loyalty application and allow loyalty managers to set up offers and rewards. You can create loyalty promotions to reward enrollment, referral, purchases,  social behavior or any other activity reported by partners.  Promotions can also move members from one tier to another when they reach milestones based on tenure, points or activity. Oracle Loyalty Cloud also uses loyalty promotions to conduct administrative tasks such as canceling transactions.

Oracle Loyalty Cloud uses a drag-and-drop user interface to make it easy for loyalty program managers to create rules by making all the relevant loyalty program, member and transaction metadata available to them. It leverages Oracle Business Rules to define and execute promotions ranging from simple to complex.

You can setup simple promotions such as point-per-dollar or more complex promotions that use the partner, product, member, date or any other related information. You can also create frequency promotions by tracking member activity of a specific type and giving rewards on reaching specific thresholds, such as number of purchases or amount spent. You can also dynamically change member tier on reaching a threshold.

Loyalty Transaction Processing

Process Loyalty Transactions

Oracle Loyalty Cloud tracks each member activity as a loyalty transaction of the type Enrollment, Referral, Accrual or Redemption. Loyalty transaction can be created and viewed by the Loyalty Manager through the simple and user-friendly user interface or through REST APIs.

All the transactions are processed in real time and the processing results are summarized and presented on the user interface or as API output for consistent multi-channel customer experience.
