ResaleAI’s Loyalty Assist
ResaleAI’s Loyalty Assist function links the FiveStars loyalty program with DRS. Loyalty Assist simplifies the way points are awarded to a customer for a transaction. The store owner decides in advance what dollar amount of sales s a FiveStars point. The store owner also chooses what dollar amount of buys receives a point.Also, the store owner can create information tags to be attached to a customer’s FiveStars account. The information tags show whether the customer purchased merchandise, sold merchandise, or both.Store owners can set the number of points awarded and the information tags by going to the Settings screen and clicking the FiveStars button.
Here is how points are awarded to a sales or buy transaction when using Loyalty Assist: A sales associate attaches a DRS customer record to the transaction.ResaleAI uses the mobile phone number from the DRS customer record to identify the customer to FiveStars. Then ResaleAI awards the appropriate points and sets the appropriate information tags. No action is required by the Sales Associate to calculate or award points.
ResaleAI matches FiveStars customer records with DRS customer records using the mobile number. In the DRS record, the mobile phone number may be the Customer Code or the phone number. If the mobile number is the Customer Code, then the phone number must be blank. It is important to confirm the telephone number with the customer at the time of the transaction.
Currently, Loyalty Assist cannot be used for the redemption of points. Loyalty Assist cannot be used to award points without a sale or buy transaction. The FiveStars app must be used to redeem points or to award points when there is no sale or buy transaction.
Loyalty Assist is available to all ResaleAI customers who have DRS version 7 and above. It is included in the subscription cost. A store must have an active FiveStars account to use Loyalty Assist. Start using Loyalty Assist in your store, by clicking the support button and tell us you want to integrate FiveStars.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does Loyalty Assist work with any other loyalty programs other than FiveStars?
No. Currently, Loyalty Assist only works with FiveStars. ResaleAI will explore integrating with any group that Winmark names a Preferred Vendor.
Can I use Loyalty Assist to award more points than the number appropriate for a transaction? If I want to give extra points to a disappointed customer? Or if I want to convert a customer’s old stamp card to FiveStars points.
Loyalty Assist can only award points based on the dollar amount of a transaction. Anytime you want to add points ad hoc, you must use the FiveStars app.
What happens if Loyalty Assist adds points for a transaction, but the Sales Associate also adds points from the FiveStars interface?
The customer will receive all points added from Loyalty Assist AND all points added from the FiveStars interface. It is important to fully train staff before starting to use Loyalty Assist. That is why ResaleAI offers webinars to help owners prepare before turning on Loyalty Assist.
Can my staff stop using the FiveStars app when we start using Loyalty Assist?
No. You still need the FiveStars app to redeem points.
With Loyalty Assist, the FiveStars app is not needed to award standard points for transactions. If you award points for other reasons, like converting stamp cards, you will need to use the FiveStars interface.
