As the unifying component across various properties throughout the U.S, the Caesars Entertainment mobile loyalty experience offers a key opportunity to not only extend the brand directly into the hands of its most loyal customers, but also to deliver personalized and contextualized incentives based on rewards data.
The previous version of the loyalty app was in need of modernization and a touch of sophistication to allow for a more tailored feel for each customer, while driving retention across its vast customer base. This repeat engagement with the loyalty program allows Caesars to continuously learn more and more about what customers want and need.
We started by looking at the existing infrastructure in order first to stabilize the foundation. Overall performance issues were then updated by quickly and thoroughly refactoring both iOS and android platforms.
After stabilizing the infrastructure, we overhauled the information architecture and revamped the entire user experience. A new modernized user interface helped to create a sharp, memorable app experience. Multiple rounds of usability research throughout the design and development cycles allowed for quick iterations and delivery of the right experience to end users.
Next, we introduced interactive wayfinding to enhance the on-property experience, partnered with Airship to tighten up the notification deep-linking schema to help drive engagement and conversions, and integrated Adobe Analytics to ensure we are making data-informed product decisions at every turn. We are also able to communicate based on real-time location with targeted events, activities and offers.
The new and improved loyalty app provides the information, utility and convenience that guests desire both on and off property while also offering Caesars additional monetization opportunities, increased revenue and enhanced customer lifetime value. The new and improved app also helps to shift customer behavior from expensive in-bound calls to simple, mobile transactions thus significantly reducing overall costs.
The mobile app hit all-time high KPIs in 2018 and 2019 including enhanced revenue, bookings, new installs and monthly active users, as well as improved App store rankings. The Caesars mobile app was featured as a best-in-class example at the 2019 Dreamforce conference (put on by Salesforce.com) as a premier example of how to best utilize Salesforce.com’s extensive platform alongside a beautifully designed front-end user experience.
