NEW YORK, May 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --
According to data compiled by Allied Market Research, the Loyalty Management Market is expected to grow to $6.95 billion at a CAGR of 20.8 percent. The main driver for the market is the continuous effort by companies to improve customer satisfaction. Methods to achieve this goal include pushing out initiatives that offer loyalty rewards for discounted products. North America generated the highest revenue in the global loyalty management market in 2016 due to adequate infrastructural development for the adoption of loyalty management. Loyalty Management is relevant in many industries including BFSI, Travel & Hospitality, Media & Entertainment, Healthcare, Retail, Telecom & IT, Manufacturing, and Others. Snipp Interactive Inc.

Recently Fortune has reported that Marriott announced its new loyalty program, integrated with Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Inc, unveiling a benefits package that allows customers to keep lifetime status earned under the old programs, and increases the rate at which they earn points through hotel stays by an average of 20 percent. According to Fortune, Members had "a lot of anxiety around what's going to happen when you merge the programs," David Flueck, Marriott's senior vice president in charge of loyalty, said in an interview. "What will be welcome news, and almost surprising, is that we didn't use this as a time to make the programs less rich - we're actually investing more in our members."
