Comarch was among the few selected companies that Forrester invited to participate in “The Forrester Wave™: Customer Loyalty Solutions For Large Organisations, Q1 2016” evaluation.
Forrester evaluated vendors against forty different criteria, grouped into three broad categories: Current Offering, Strategy and Market Presence. Comarch received its highest scores for loyalty management, pricing structure and average deal size. In the latter two cases, this was also the maximum score possible.
'Consider Comarch if technology discipline is your top priority' – says the Forrester Wave Q1 2016 Report. We believe this recommendation emphasises Comarch’s main advantage: a strong technical background and expertise. Comarch was placed in the category of the end-to-end solutions providers for large organisations. In the report, Comarch was cited as a strong performer, and a vendor that offers competitive options.
Comarch certainly brings strong loyalty management capabilities to the market through its products and experience managing large partner programmes for airlines, travel and oil and gas companies. Clients are very satisfied with Comarch’s value and appreciate the ease of technology implementation and industry expertise. As one client said: ‘We really liked that they could... adapt to the uniqueness of our business.’ – stated the Forrester report.
Forrester also included Comarch among vendors who are expanding into new markets: Comarch’s recent investment in Thanks Again enhances its offering for clients in the travel vertical, and it is in the process of launching a smart city solution that will enable municipalities to leverage its loyalty management product across government, business and community stakeholders.
Comarch’s solution was also recently mentioned by Gartner, another leading research firm, in two reports entitled “Hype Cycle for Digital Commerce” and “The Gartner CRM Vendor Guide”.
This is great news. In our opinion, our advanced solutions, international experience, fast product development and the strategic business decisions of our Board allowed Comarch to to be named a “Strong Performer.” Our work with over eighty clients, including FMCG companies, telecoms, financial institutions and travel companies, was worth it – says Radoslaw Zep, CRM&Marketing Product Manager, Comarch.
