The 1 Card is also the first loyalty card, which has developed various programs to satisfy customer’s needs and to catch up into their mind. The 1 Card program has been quite successful in attracting an increasing number of members every year.

In 2008, The 1 Card started to enhance its strategic plans utilizing CRM in combination with customer experience management (CEM) aimed to promote Emotional Loyalty, by pooling alliances with more than 150 retail vendors throughout the country.

More than 80 percent of The 1 Card’s holders have made point redemption for cash coupon, premiums and other privileges. Key advantage of The 1 Card program is its ability to know customers better, understand their needs and offer products, promotions, services and privileges tailored-made for its target customers,” said Sawanya.

“This year, The 1 Card has continuously developed new innovative campaigns to build relationship among the members, focused on adding new privileges to them. “Everyday Enjoyment” has been launched as the latest annual campaign for 2010, which will open widely for all The 1 Card members to join and have fun.

Under ‘Movie Preview’ campaign, the card members will have a chance to preview blockbusters before the others every month. Other leisure and edutainment activities will be enhanced to The 1 Card members including eco-tourism, cooking class, artifacts, as well as alliances with business partners, such as food shops and restaurants, educational institutes, beauty salons, hospitals, spa complexes, hotels and resorts, golf courts, amusement parks, and other service operators, in providing special privileges to the members.
