Clutch Partners with RetailNext to Take Consumer Loyalty and Engagement to Next Level

Clutch, a leading platform powering loyalty, rewards, gifting and mobile commerce for consumer-focused retailers and brands, today announced its partnership with RetailNext, the in-store analytics market leader. The partnership coincides with the release by RetailNext of its Enterprise APIs, particularly its Personalization API, which is being used to integrate its respective platforms.

The Clutch suite of modular customer lifecycle success solutions for loyalty, rewards, consumer analytics, gift, social and promotional engagement, and mobility capabilities is utilized by more than 350 retailers, including well-known brands such as Godiva Chocolatier, Atlanta Bread, Swatch, Dooney & Bourke, Ruum, Life is Good, Pandora Jewelry and The Body Shop. RetailNext is the most comprehensive in-store analytics platform for retailers. The integration of the two platforms will deliver a completely integrated and personalized in-store experience.

“Data has been around for online shopping since inception,” said Ned Moore, CEO of Clutch. “With the combination of Clutch and RetailNext, we can bring to bear a multitude of data elements such as spending, shopping comparison, demographic, mobile and social graph information in real-time to create an extremely rich and personal experience to in-store shoppers in way that was not possible before.”

How Integration Could Work: An Example

Retailers use the opt-in based products of RetailNext to understand in-store behavior of their most valuable customers: path followed, areas of interest and engagement with the products and the brand, etc. Retailers use the Clutch platform to power loyalty and engagement programs and provide them with real-time and historical data that gives insights on how a customer responds to promotions across channels: in-store, online, mobile, and social.

The integration allows a retailer to know that if a consumer looks at a blue shirt online or in a mobile app, it can send an offer for a blue shirt to that consumer’s phone when they are near the store or as they enter it. A retailer also can know that if a consumer was engaged in the shirt department in a store, but didn’t make a shirt purchase, it can send them an offer online or through a mobile phone with relevant content on shirts.

“By marrying the in-store behavior data with data about how customers respond to loyalty program promotions, retailers can engage consumers in a hyper-relevant, contextually sensitive manner while consumers are actively browsing in-store,” said Maria Fernandez Guajardo, VP of Product Management at RetailNext. “This real-time, personalized communication takes loyalty and engagement programs to the next level and blurs the line between in-store, online and social experiences. Our partnership with Clutch is a perfect example of how our API enables such a powerful solution.”
