Modules that seamlessly integrate in your Marketing Stack
Marketing Technology to make your life easier: choose which modules you need.
It’s VEMT’s mission to help clients persuade their customers to increase turnover. We do that by providing subtle nudges (strategies) at all touch points along the customer journey, so our clients can achieve their commercial goals. Combinations of strategies form a Persuasion Program.
Because you can mix and match strategies in any combination, the result will always be a truly unique Persuasion Program. Every VEMT client uses a different set of strategies, selected in consultation with VEMT, to get the best results considering the specific sector, target group and your objectives. All persuasion strategies are aimed at engaging and influencing customers by combining rewards and incentives for actions such as purchases, as well as social media brand interactions.
Our strategies are implemented through various modules which our clients can use, connect and integrate in whatever combination they prefer.

Welcome your customers through the fully customizable MyAccountPages

Members can find information about saved/redeemed points, earned /spent vouchers, benefits/discounts/special offers, team members and other integrated services. Information from the client (loyalty) Helpdesk can be integrated here as well.
Using the MyAccountPages saves time and enables you to be up and running without the need for integrations, site design, building, testing and update procedures.

All layout is fully customizable and extendable. An unlimited number of static and personalized pages can be added without needing VEMT support, either using preset templates or fully customizable HTML/CSS.
Personalized offers with My Deals
From the Persuaders that marketers create in the PersuasionPlanner, specific offers or deals can be created for specific customers. These highly personalized offers are connected with other elements in the VEMT Loyalty Marketing Cloud, forming a mechanism to automatically and dynamically present personalized offers to customers. This (virtual) module is often used by our clients presenting offers in the MyAccountPages, their own website/webshop, mail campaigns and in SMS messages.
Robust Campaign Management
Campaign creation (e-mail, SMS, LandingPages) is a user friendly module with real-time, extensive reports, including behavioral details of recipients such as tracking of individually clicked links.
The Campaign module is highly configurable and has a multi-level user authorization. Retail chains can allow individual stores to manage their local mailing list through the VEMT Marketing Cloud and let them send out campaigns about local events and discounts (within carefully crafted mandated templates to enforce brand consistency).
All Persuasive strategies are integrated with the Campiagn Module.
Access and Identity Module
We allow to provide for various authorizations for different departments/users and to hide information that should not be accessed. Default roles are designed for marketers, Customer Service agents and supervisors, program management and store personnel. If our client should desire additional roles: they can be easily added.
The Identity module handles the validation of logins and registrations, for both customers and clients. To facilitate programs that are easy to use in all channels, we offer various default validation procedures based on:
- email – password combination
- card number – security code combination
- account number – postal code combination
- account number – telephone number combination
- third party validation services / ActiveDirectory services
Scalable Data Management Platform
The basis for the VEMT Loyalty Marketing Cloud is the very scalable Data Management Platform. At this moment, more than 11 million accounts are serviced through this very robust and secure module. The amazingly flexible VEMT data model connects with many types of clients, not requiring any customization, but certainly capable of offering custom settings and data. This ranges from anything as:
- Favorites, like brands, sports, styles, etc
- Membership types and statuses, all to be used simultaneously
- Newsletter preferences, date of registration
- Metrics (like RFM scoring and other benchmarks) to measure customer potential and attractiveness
- Social Media Activities
- Persuasion Profiling scoring (sensitivity to various persuasive strategies)
The module enables the creation of (behavioral and demographic) segmentations. These segmentations can be used in the Persuasion Planner or the Campaign Module.
Data from external parties can be added to enrich the profile information that is saved in the CDP module.
Uniquely, VEMT offers connected accounts. They can be used to share accrued points within clubs, sport teams, families or departments within a company, listed as ‘My Team’ or ‘My Family’. Together they can accumulate larger amounts, and thus redeem for larger amounts, which can be valuable in several persuasive strategies.
Connected accounts can be used with gamification strategies within a program by increasing the competitive element between the groups. Depending on client objectives, it can be effective to increase the ‘community feeling’ between the members of the group, since they work towards a goal all together.
The CDP module contains the calculation tool of the platform. It executes all calculations within a program. Mostly, in loyalty and gamification programs, clients use a baseline proposition (e.g. 5 points per euro spend) which applies throughout the whole program. Rules like these are executed in real-time, even if millions of transactions are involved and input arrives from multiple sources at the same time.
Points/rewards can earned for various events, like for example:
- Birthday events
- Sharing of content on social media
- Posting on social media
- Member get member actions
- Participating in questionnaires
- Writing of reviews
The CDP module contains sector specific configurations, which are important for VEMT’s effectiveness throughout market segments. The retail sector requires a different definition of what a transaction, order and return is, for example, than the travel sector, in which returns after consumption are not possible. These sector specific configurations enable VEMT to deploy the platform throughout various markets, being a specialist in each of them. To this date, we have prepared and deployed sector specific configurations for Online Retail, Offline Retail, Omni-channel Retail, Retail Fashion, Travel, B2B, Gifting and Shopping malls.
Synchronize everything with the Converter Module; all is API-based
The link between the outside world is the Converter Module. This module converts data from our client’s systems and the VEMT Eco-system to the internally used VEMT Universal Format (VUF). The Converter is a high-performance, robust environment in which data from all types of sources can be combined and processed. Even distributed Big Data sources can be connected and used throughout the platform.
The VEMT Loyalty Marketing Cloud is completely API-based. For the Converter, extensive API-documentation is online available for client and partner engineers to be able to connect to the VEMT Loyalty Marketing Cloud quickly.
Import Module; add members and subscribers from external sources
We include many ways for members and subscribers to add their data to the program. Sometimes however, you have lists and new groups of members from external sources that you want to add in bulk to your program quick and clean. The VEMT Import Module facilitates this, including automated welcome mails, password settings, individual status updates and custom fields.
