Collect points and redeem them for a discount or gift item
Retail Hero's customer loyalty reward system Hero Points 3 for Microsoft Dynamics RMS is the best integrated customer loyalty software for Dynamics RMS that allows customers to collect loyalty points and redeem them for discounts.
The system's functionality is similar to popular mass customer loyalty programs - with the advantage that you can run Hero Points completely in-house, without paying any service charges and fees! And, plus, the merchant is in full control of their loyalty program.
With Hero Points the store owner is given the capability to define both collection and redemption schedules and provide additional points for specific purchases (bonus points) and for the new customers (welcome points).
In Hero Points, the point collection schedule allows to assign how many points-per-dollar the customer will collect for purchasing of a specific item or an item from a specific department/category. The collection schedule lets you define effective date ranges, various exempts, bonus points, welcome points and a minimum purchase value.
As in the previous version of Hero Points, the flexible redemption schedule gives three options for applying the discount: a transaction discount, a reward item, or for a gift item. In addition there is a way to collect points on unavaliable earlier transaction types, such as work orders, back orders and layaways.
At the POS till during a transaction the system detects when the customer has collected the number of redeemable points and automatically prompts the cashier to reward the customer by applying a discount according to the redemption schedule.
Sample Point Collection Scenarios:
1. “Fixed” collection: 1 point per $1 spent for any items (exception apply)
