By combining sales patterns and customer service interactions with advocacy activity data, you can possess a complete picture on when, where and how your best customers prefer to engage. This allows for the ability to identify and reduce friction while also providing targeted incentives that increase customer advocacy. This detailed level of customer interaction can even extend offline through custom created printed cards.

The adaptive architecture deployed by NextBee is what allows for this finely-tuned approach. NextBee's industry-leading modular software means you only deploy what works. A near unlimited number of tags allows you to create, test and target an equally unlimited number of segments.

NextBee's integrated technology makes it easy.

"Knowing where, when and how your customers engage with your brand is essential," says Ashish Mohole, Founder and CEO of NextBee, "It is what allows for a personalized approach that will get your customer's attention. Demonstrating knowledge of your customer's preferences is part of providing a quality experience. When you provide a consistent, high-quality, experience, customers will advocate on your behalf, especially when a small incentive is offered for doing so."
