Enkronos has just released its Loyalty Venue platform that allows companies to easily create their own loyalty campaigns to reward their most loyal customers.

Loyalty Venue has developed a powerful integrated application technology for the management of loyalty programs (loyalty card, loyalty campaigns etc).

Brands will be able to attach their loyalty promotions and their loyalty card to the Loyalty Venue System and secure “virtual” scores, which give the right to prizes, based on a catalog.

Loyalty Venue therefore configures a system of creation and maintenance of the digital catalog that enables the realization of product cards and points needed to receive them. The catalog may be managed directly by the loyalty program manager, or we can fill it in through an optional service.

Thanks to the responsive online technology your customers can easily sign up, redeem their points and check their current point balance in your Loyalty Venue program from anywhere on every device with web connection. They can order their desired prizes directly from the Web Catalog and receive them at home.

Our user friendly loyalty solutions can be fully customized with your company’s corporate image and graphic layout.

Your employees can rapidly enter transactions using a simple dashboard at point of sale, retail and online shop or let customers to sign-in and upload their earned points themselves. They can easily manage prize orders and deliveries from 1 single dashboard.

You can create, or upload your own unique codes directly from your admin dashboard, setting their validity dates and monitoring their usage for customer care and support activities.

Loyalty programs are very likely to increase visits to your business, thanks of customer membership effect. Successfully retaining even only a small part of the customer base can increase a lot of business revenue.

Loyalty Venue is based on an architecture that includes an integration component with functional modules and internal and external services, based on RESTful API technology, for users with SSO authentication (single sign-on).

The technology also allows extensive customization that may be required by the existence of particular constraints or systems used by customers. Loyalty Venue is natively multi-language and multi-country compliant.

A future, indeed a present increasingly Artificial Intelligence enhanced

The interest around the artificial intelligence applications has grown tremendously in recent times, so as to collect, according to CB Insight, more than $ 6 billion of venture capital funding in the past 5 years with 1098 with deals concluded. From 2011 to 2015 AI equity funding grew by 746% with $ 2.4 billion. The growth trend has continued in 2016, so much so that in the first quarter closed deals were 143, 36% more than in the previous quarter.

There are many sectors of industrial application of artificial intelligence, such as for example:

  • Conversational AI / Bots
  • Vision
  • Auto
  • Robotics
  • Cybersecurity
  • Business Intelligence & Analytics
  • AD, Sales, CRM
  • Core AI
  • Healthcare
  • Text Analysis / Generation
  • IOT / IIOT
  • Commerce
  • Fintech & Insurance
  • Other (agriculture, climatology, education, HR etc.).

Within a few years most of the companies can no longer easily ignore the integration of their business processes with AI technologies enabling the maintenance of its competitive potential in the market.

The sectors that have most invested in AI and cognitive systems in 2016 were banking and retail, followed by health care and manufacturing. Together, these industries we will generate more than half of the revenue in 2016, with the banking and retail that each generate $ 1.5 billion. In the four years 2016-2020 will be healthcare and manufacturing to grow at the highest rate, which will be annually respectively by 69.3% and 61.4%.

Most of the revenue, almost half of the total, will be realized by the software, which includes both the cognitive applications (for example, analysis of texts and multimedia, tagging, search, machine learning, categorization, clustering, hypothesis generation, answers to questions, vision, filtering, alerting and navigation) that the cognitive software platforms that facilitate the development of intelligent, consulting and cognitive enhanced solutions.

Developing digital strategies and platforms – both own (such as Contest Dream and Loyalty Venue) and for third parties – Enkronos is increasingly integrating artificial intelligence services and applications. Here are some areas of most interest for the development of artificial intelligence enhanced digital platforms to which we are working:

  • machine learning
    • deep learning
    • predictive analysis
  • natural language processing (NLP)
    • translation
    • classification, clustering
    • information extraction
  • speech
    • speech recognition
    • text to speech
  • expert systems
  • planning, scheduling, optimization
  • robotics
  • vision
    • image recognition
    • machine vision
    • face recognition
    • gesture recognition
    • emotion recognition
    • pose estimation

In conclusion, although perhaps appears to many futuristic the prediction of Elon Musk that human beings will become a sort of cyborg to compete with artificial intelligence, it is rather clear to most that companies in every industry cannot afford to watch passively to the growth of this technology.
