Thu, 12 Jan 2017 09:49:06 +0000Most of us would be lost without our mobile phones. We manage our lives with them. Our shopping habits are informed by them, too. We research purchases via mobile, find our nearest store or shop online and even pay using our mobiles. We use them to manage much of our day-to-day lives, from tracking our food and exercise, to ordering and paying for our coffee, or planning our weekly shop. Loyalty schemes that take advantage of the benefits of mobile technology stand a much better chance of creating long-term loyalty in customers.
