Program Technology Refresh Boosts Engagement

Reward Program in Need of an Upgrade

Launched in 2006, the original Forward Rewards Program required customers to identify themselves via a key fob and time-consuming manual entry of registration forms. Paper coupon printers took up valuable real estate at check-out counter, and continuous IT maintenance was required to ensure hardware on fuel pumps and in store was working.


Cashiers and Customers Enjoy Ease of Use

Built on the Paytronix Rewards platform, the new user-friendly Forward Rewards program is integrated directly with Forward’s Verifone Commander POS system. Cashiers are heroes in the transaction – “you have a reward!” – which they can quickly redeem for the member. Members are IDed at the POS via a rewards card or their telephone number. Paytronix technology scans the transaction for current, redeemable rewards, while automatically accruing value for the next reward to the member’s account.

New technology makes joining Forward Rewards easier. The brand is capturing twice as much customer purchase behavior data, more customers are joining and remaining active in the program.
