Loyalty Database Hosting
Loyalty Database Hosting (LDH) centralizes the management of loyalty program data and makes it available in real time. It integrates all the customer contact points, enabling call center and web users to rapidly and efficiently manage redemption, fulfillment, and reconciliation transactions with internal and external partners and systems.
Existing loyalty programs and databases increase in complexity over time causing loyalty data to be stored in multiple databases on legacy systems as new capabilities are added. Ernex offers Loyalty Database Hosting as a managed service, so that you do not have to continually spend valuable resources to retrofit and maintain the existing legacy systems and databases.
Benefits of outsourcing loyalty database management with LDH include:
- Shorter implementation times
- Elimination of capital investments in hardware and software
- Full cycle application services
- Predictable fees for simplified budgeting & planning
- Reduced time spent on administrative and operational duties, which can be spent on other strategic initiatives
