In a market full of schemes and programs developed with the objective to magnetizing customers towards a brand or increase foot falls towards the super store, an initiative that could genuinely offer tangible benefits to the public with no strings attached would be the real winner.Loyalty Cards, Privilege Memberships and so on are two of the most worn-out customer relations rollouts that we have seen in the recent past. The net result is that customer ends up with stacks of plastic cards in their already bulging wallet or purse without any clue as to who offers what.Therefore identifying your customer or a specific sector or group, to know his or her preference or choice and most importantly to understand their spending capacity are foremost in building a genuine customer relations platform. You got to reward them, offer
them something that could they reap the benefits then and there.

Nucleus Privilege is just about that!

Upfront discounts on purchases that will give the holder a price advantage could drive customers towards the brand by compulsion and by choice. In other words it is a “Members Only” loyalty scheme.Nucleus Privilege is a two-tier program that promises the Member Merchant a guaranteed footfall while assuring the Card member a definite price benefit. This is what the market was looking for.CH17’s association with the apparel sector of Sri Lanka which has a massive workforce of 350,000 with a further one million plus as extended family members was the launch-pad for this focused group loyalty cum privilege program.This iconic program has attracted some of the top brands in the market today who have identified the potential to truly build a loyal base of Customers with the least effort and minimal budgets. We’ve won the day!
