Create more incrementality with Human-guided AI.
Kobie’s strategy-led perspective on Machine Learning (ML) is the distinctive factor that differentiates us in the market. We firmly hold that the application of context and strategy to ML is just as pivotal as the mathematical and methodological aspects.
We marry Business Intelligence (BI), loyalty strategy, and deep understanding of our clients’ business to develop ML models that guarantee the success of our clients’ programs. Brands benefit from our existing suite of ML models, which have been meticulously developed across multiple verticals and trained on all types of member behavior to create an exceptionally adaptable foundation for new learnings.
Kobie stays on the leading edge of the rapid advancements in artificial intelligence (AI) which is creating new opportunities for loyalty everywhere. However, we add an important ingredient to the AI toolset – the human factor. Left alone, AI algorithms can mistake correlation with causality so we guide AI for our clients with loyalty-centric, mulit-vertical experts in data and decision science.

Are your campaigns growing customer loyalty?
Our analytical services are powered by what we call Triple Play Data® which includes transactional, behavioral, and emotional data to derive unique insights and differential value. For marketing campaigns, we focus on behavioral data like opens, clicks, and conversion stats of the communications and add loyalty views for members, tiers, changes in liability, and more.
We measure how your campaigns perform across channels with intelligent dashboards and data visualization across triggered, ad-hoc, or lifecycle campaigns. With these insights, you never have to guess if campaigns are resonating with audiences and driving the desired behaviors.
Program Health Analysis
Gain a holistic view of your program.
Every great program is financially viable, operationally feasible, and has a compelling value proposition.
Kobie’s approach to program health considers the financial lens inclusive of financial model, and the member lens for value proposition and experience delivery to holistically assess program health.
Emotional Loyalty Measurement
Understanding your customers’ emotional motivations.
Kobie’s Emotional Loyalty Scoring (ELS®), is the only data-driven measurement in the industry that measures how customers are emotionally connected to a brand and the loyalty strategy. Incremental engagement with a brand implies greater loyalty to it, but in order to sustain that incrementality, brands need to understand how their customers and members are emotionally motivated.
ELS is based on academic research that Kobie developed into a scoring algorithm to help understand, track and trend emotional motivators alongside performance measurement. This analytical view to something many see as subjective, sets Kobie apart in the industry.
