What TCS Provides: TCS provides an end-to-end solution of business consulting, systems integration and a state-of-the-art solution for Relationship Loyalty in collaboration with its alliance partner, SunTec. We have an in-depth understanding and experience in selection and implementation of products to suit the varied needs of global retail and commercial banks.

Business Value: Loyalty management is an emerging trend in the banking industry. It helps banks clinch a larger share of the customers wallet and ensures customer retention by driving customer behavior. This solution helps banks to increase the customers portfolio penetration and cross-selling by creating novel and innovative loyalty programs based on customer/account/product or any transaction attribute. Customers are rewarded for availing multiple products and services, their longevity of relation with the bank, the volume, revenue or margins generated across geographies, usage of channels and others. In new-age banking, the emphasis is on building enterprise-wide relationship-based loyalty programs that reward customers for their entire banking relationship across all financial products and services of the bank. Predictive modeling in this solution ensures banks to run profitable loyalty programs by testing the program against historic customer usage pattern. In being able to provide rewards/commission for and sustain relations with its high return partners/merchants, banks are in turn assured of being able to lure their customers with the showcase of the right rewards.

Alliance: TCS has partnered with SunTec to provide services in the area of Loyalty Management for global banks. SunTec is extending its suite of products for players in the banking and financial services industry by introducing the centralized Relationship Loyalty solution to its existing suite of relationship-based pricing and centralized billing solutions.
