By partnering with retailers, G4L acts as an external rewards program for businesses by introducing new customers and driving traffic to retail outlets where points can be redeemed. Students can also earn points when shopping within the G4L business network.

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.
