If your company is a retailer or bank and you are looking to increase payment, loyalty and customer engagement this article is for you.
With the rise of online shopping in the past years, high street retailers have found themselves sailing through rough waters. In the ever growing shadow of online giants like Amazon, many have struggled to keep their shops open and failed. Even big retail companies like H&M have been affected. Early in 2018, H&M announced it will close 170 shops, the biggest number of store closures since at least 1998 according to bloomberg.com.
The answer to this David and Goliath situation is technology, specifically mobile apps.
What do all high street retailers strive for? Returning customers.
What is their strategy to meet their goal? Loyalty programs.
The challenge? Lack of digital tools to help them know, understand and turn their customers into loyal customers.
That’s where Yoyo comes in.

Referral and sharing

Offer your always-on-the-run customers the VIP experience and remove their need to queue. Let your customers order and pay for food and drink in advance, leaving a simple pick-up of the ordered items.
- Customer feedback
Customer feedback is paramount. With Yoyo you can get instant feedback from users without the typical effort and expense. Choose from an Uber-style star rating or a long form, multi-question format.
Business decisions are taken on valuable and relevant insight. Here is how the Yoyo app can help your company collect and analyze data:
Sales performance tracking
Monitor your every sale and your wider business performance in real-time. Track at a portfolio-wide, regional, outlet or even cashier level, and understand the variables that are influencing the real-time numbers.
Basket Data & Customer Identification With Every Transaction
Receive a deeply insightful snapshot into who your customers are and what they are buying. This is a data set that marketing, operations, buying and CRM decisions can be centred and tracked around.
All customers are not created equal. That’s why it is important to know who is buying what and when. You can also split data around multiple variables including frequency, items purchased, time of day and ATV.
Before, during and after campaign reporting
Track marketing metrics around campaigns, but unlike standard campaign evaluations, Yoyo also compares customer purchasing behaviours for the periods before, during and after the campaign. This provides a clear connection between activity and action, invaluable in assessing ROI.
