Customer profiling
Smart-Way allows companies to obtain information about their customer profiles. This information can be used for data modeling, like trend analyzing, personal advertising, targeted vouchers, individual segmentation, etc. This allows companies to retain their customers with targeted promotions and campaigns. It also enables companies to attract and gain new customers via database or customer profiles from partners or complementary organizations, which are connected to the same loyalty smart card program.

Stéphane Vandervelde, vice president Applications Division of Keyware: “Today’s challenge for organizations active in banking, insurances, health care, marketing, retail or commercial services is to retain their best customers and gain new customers in a fast and cost-effective way. With Smart-Way, these organizations attract their target groups simultaneously through the real, virtual and mobile world and through long-term as well as ad-hoc co-operations with organizations that have complementary customer bases. It’s simple, fast and provides first-hand reliable consumer data.”
