Currency Alliance operates the Loyalty Ecosystem – which is a cloud-based platform enabling existing and new loyalty programs to rapidly connect with other businesses to issue, redeem, and exchange popular loyalty currencies.
The next wave of innovation in loyalty marketing involves broader collaborations among business partners to offer common loyalty currencies – or enable greater liquidity – so customers can more rapidly accumulate value and realize greater freedom in using that value for redemptions that are really motivating. More motivated customers buy more frequently and identify themselves during the sale – which generates much better data to enable our partners to personalize engagement.
Our objective is to increase the utility of loyalty currencies for consumers, thereby increasing value to our merchant or travel partners issuing those loyalty currencies. Greater utility drives more customer interaction, which in turn generates better data. We help make that data actionable via marketing campaign management tools, or through triggers that drive actions in your own CRM, Loyalty, or Marketing Campaign Management systems.
The Currency Alliance platform is designed to extend functionality for existing loyalty programs by enabling easy connectivity between trading partners, assembling rich customer profiles, and facilitating more automated customer engagement. To achieve this, we offer a single API with multiple endpoints through which any type of loyalty transaction can be completed. Some partners have integrated and completed testing in as little as 3 days.
Currency Alliance also offers a Loyalty Rules Engine to enable partners to easily set up earning and redemption rules. Because the modern technology runs in the Amazon Web Services Cloud, all partners benefit from a robust architecture and scalability, as well as shared operating cost. And best of all, the platform is free to use. We only charge a nominal fee for actual transactions completed.
Owners of a loyalty currency can easily network with issuing and redemption partners while retaining full control over marketing campaigns and how the currency is used. We also enable loyalty currency exchange at the wholesale level between collaborating programs, as well as at the retail level so customers can shift value between collaborating programs. Partners retain full control over each trading partner as well as the price at which their currency is exchanged – to enable proactive liability reduction at a profitable cost.
Providing greater freedom to customers will generate increased customer value that can significantly grow active engagement with your program.
The Currency Alliance platform can be used as an extension of existing loyalty programs created over the past 30 years in a very flexible way to meet new business requirements (that would be cost-prohibitive to retrofit into existing architectures), or as a one-stop, Plug & Play solution that replaces the need for high-cost systems. And, the architecture is designed specifically to ensure compliance with rapidly evolving data protection legislation and to store data in a way to virtually eliminate cyber-security threats.
We also welcome the opportunity to work with loyalty solutions providers to help them deliver greater functionality, easier partner connectivity, and new currencies to their clients.

Employment is changing. Fast.
Despite employers’ best efforts, disruption caused by staff turnover is on the rise, and loyalty is increasingly scarce. Generational attitudes towards careers are shifting, while the importance of a stable, motivated and unified workforce has never been greater. As well as seeking a progressive and supportive culture, a sense of purpose, and flexible working, today’s employees demand tangible appreciation.
It is the age of the ‘employer proposition’. The age of epoints.
We’ll admit it, it’s a bold claim. But with 250% growth last year, and half a billion epoints issued to date, our clients – BUPA, Virgin Active, Café Rouge to name but a few – seem to agree. In fact, since we began working with the NHS our impact on morale has been cited in no fewer than three Care Quality Commission reports. No surprise then that in 2019 we were the UK’s fastest growing Reward and Recognition provider.
Epoints is an easy and effective way to say thank you, with everything from a simple message of appreciation, to the latest iPad. Our partners include some of the best known names in retail, so the breadth of rewards available is almost limitless, and at significantly more competitive prices than sourcing rewards direct. We know that in today’s business environment reward and recognition budgets must work hard. And nothing works harder, or smarter, than epoints.
As well as reward and recognition, with epoints employees can access huge on-line savings on tens of thousands of products across dozens of categories. With the simplicity of a single check-out, and savings of at least 10% on retailers’ standard pricing plus up to 5% back in bonus epoints, we can stand confidently by our founding principle of ‘always better off’.
Working with epoints is simplicity itself, quick to implement, easy to use and with a suite of customisable reporting tools to help you stay on top of things.
Eco-points. Putting our beliefs into practice.
As a successful enterprise we believe it is our responsibility to give back.Few can deny that one of the greatest challenges faced by our world today is climate change. The relentless call for urgent action grows ever louder, and has become the drum-beat which is uniting generations.
At epoints we believe that responsibility for our planet rests with everyone, and that small changes can make huge differences. That’s why we give employees the opportunity to donate a portion of their savings to help tackle climate change. We offer a simple way to make a difference through voluntary micro-donations in the form of epoints, which help to fund environmental projects including the replanting of trees. It is an easy way to help employers to make a material difference to climate change using their reward and recognition budgets. And to reflect our own commitment to this vital initiative, we also donate 5% of our profits to the scheme.
Eco-points is a simple and powerful way for members to make a difference in the fight for a cleaner, greener, and lower carbon future.www.epoints.com
