Engage Incentive Optimization

Recover revenue and improve CX by issuing intelligent return incentives

Maximize margin from every return in any channel.

You have demanding business objectives—increase gross margin, improve conversions, bring online shoppers into your store, build loyalty, sell a wider array of products, etc.

Engage Incentive Optimization helps you achieve these goals by issuing intelligent incentives to the consumers most likely to purchase today—the ones already in your stores or on your sites. Incentive Optimization uses the information available at the time of return or purchase to deliver targeted, personalized incentives that will quickly drive new revenue within hours of a return. It works by itself or with Engage Return Authorization to evaluate and act on each transaction in real-time.

Retailers using the solution often see a 34 percent increase in revenue after a return. Plus, those consumers make 8 percent more shopping trips in the weeks after a return, spending 9 percent more at each visit.
