The technology has the power to customize the loyalty experience rather than forcing companies to offer generic "one size fits all" approach. This platform also delivers relevant content within the right context so that the program and the technology are enhancing a customer's experience – not getting in the way. They believe that a loyalty program must be a factor that "eases one's life".
"Loyalty programs could be pivoted to the B2B circuit where enterprises can engage better. Having run multiple loyalty programs for enterprises, I wanted to build a more sophisticated platform for enterprises to better engage with customers. The new platform is a cloud-based solution and is fully ML-powered giving enterprises a seamless engagement by rewarding customers." says Amit

"Epic One is bootstrapped. We plan to use the cash coming in from the first sales and existing resources to build the company further. Epic's business model will be based on a SaaS model as we will be managing the loyalty and rewards programs of several businesses. On the B2C side, we stand to benefit when the customer redeems points between different brands. We are gearing up for launch by the end of this year. Epic is an offshoot of Rewards 360 with clients including Axis Bank, HDFC Bank, Standard Chartered, Emirate NBD to name a few. These become a default part of Epic, giving it scale from Day 1. Some of the brands that are already part of Epic include Cleartrip, Qwikcilver, Booking.com, Asos, Bharat bill pay system etc. powering our Travel and Lifestyle/ Gift Cards/ Bill Payments categories." says Amit Chawla, Co-Founder, MD & CEO of EPIC ONE
The rewards ecosystem is fragmented and is operating in silos. The customer has so many brands to go individually. But with EPIC ONE, they have all these brands under one platform.
