SAP CRM Loyalty Management is a comprehensive loyalty management solution to help companies manage their increasingly complex customer loyalty programs, such as an airline’s frequent flyer program or a retail company’s customer rewards program.


More often then not complex Loyalty Management applications requires constant access to back-end financial systems to get complete end-2-end view of customer’s expenditure and then based on complex set of rules the reward points would be calculated and accrued.

This solution will help reduce costs in managing loyalty programs, reduce errors in administration, and give customers and companies greater transparency to the program.

      Loyalty Management is nicely explained.

      In today's highly competetive environment, the customer relationship enhancement applications like Loyalty Management definitely improves the customer rapport and in turn the business opportunities. With this even we can retain and associate the customer for longer time
