This release introduces a promo engine and mobile mode in email editor for Engage+.

Promo Engine - Enable cart & catalog promotions

Promo Engine is designed to change the way modern-day promotions are run & managed in-store.

As one of the newly introduced incentive mechanisms offered by Capillary. It brings together Capillary’s market-leading capabilities like event-driven rule-based engine, AI-powered personalization & propensity models, product and activity-based offers, cross-category upselling, and an array of benefits delivering instant gratification at the time of checkout.


What challenges does it address?

Lack of personalization in POS promotions 

Promotions so far have been a means of mass incentivizing customers on popular products. Modern-day POS’s offer it as a mainstream hook for in-store purchases rather than loyalty building. Customization at scale has become one of the key differentiators to gain customer loyalty and build relationships.


Limitations imposed by technology at hand to optimize discounts

Configuring promotions based on real-time events and customer segments is a luxury few can afford. Even then it is nearly impossible to factor in all variables. 


How does Promo Engine solve the problem?
