Capillary helps Colorplus bag Asia Retail Congress Award

Capillary Technologies congratulates ColorPlus on winning the Asia Retail Congress award in the Customer Loyalty segment. The awards recognise retail excellence in different verticals, retail marketing spanning social media and campaigns, visual merchandising, customer loyalty and retail logistics. This year, the awards ceremony took place on February 13 and 14, in Mumbai.
 
In 1993, ColorPlus introduced Indian men to a new dress code “Smart Casual.” Since then, the brand has created a niche for itself in the Indian men’s ready-to-wear apparel segment. In redefining prevailing perceptions about cotton and linen apparel, and extending the scope for these fabrics at the workplace, ColorPlus has opened up a whole new prêt segment.
 
Customers have repeatedly given the thumbs up to its innovations like wrinkle-free chinos, golf ball wash, wrinkle-free linen, stain free shirts and other product lines.
 
Product enhancements are not all that ColorPlus’s customers have given the nod to. ColorPlus has emerged a winner because it has closely aligned product development with the evolution of customer services, with an exceptionally strong emphasis in the last year or so.
 
In October 2012, ColorPlus rolled out a new avatar of Spectrum, its card-based loyalty programme, powered by Capillary Consumer CRM, Loyalty Manager and Customer Engagement solutions. To send customers a clear message of being committed to improving engagement and appreciation for their patronage, the brand upped the point earning rate for both of Spectrum’s tiers—1.0 Silver and 2.0 Gold. Silver members now earn 3% of their spending while occupants of Gold, the top slot, earn 5% points.
 
Members of both tiers get exclusive previews to sales, latest collections, store and product launches. But clear differentiators demarcate Gold from Silver membership. Gold members are entitled to additionally receive special offers on their birthdays and other special occasions, free home delivery of altered garments, longer validity of earned loyalty points (3 years versus 2 years for Silver members) and lifetime membership to Spectrum (versus 5 years for Silver members).
 
The numbers show customers appreciation for these innovations. Since October 2012, member enrolments have increased by 254%. Pointredemption percentage has increased by 8%.
 
A new initiative which can be described as a stepping stone to loyalty has gone down very well with customers. ColorPlus gives non members of Spectrum the option of signing up to receive offers. Customers must simply share their mobile numbers with the cashier using Capillary’s inTouch solution, which is a breeze—a move that is especially aimed at bringing tech savvy non members into the fold.
