How we built Open Loyalty

We invented Open Loyalty in 2016 and have been continuously developing the solution since then.

Open Loyalty is a customer loyalty software with the API-first approach. Customizable, scalable and secure framework for building loyalty solutions for any eCommerce business.

  • Challenge - Years ago while we're working with our partners on global eCommerce implementations we've noticed that there are some challenges they have in common. All of them had problems with a high number of one-time buyers (in retail reaching over 70%), never-ending price competition, losing clients to their competitors and the omnichannel gap in which they struggled to include offline data in building users loyalty.
  • Solution -  The idea of building our own solution came in 2016 and grew in our heads for several months. In the end, we knew that in order to deliver top-notch loyalty solutions, we have to build our own product. 
  • Starting point -  We needed to create a solid base devoted to scalable and customizable loyalty implementations for eCommerce. Additionally, we had our internal drive to enrich the open-source community and developers-friendly solution.

Project scope

Rock-solid process

Research

The project started off with four months long market research during which we investigated over 40 existing solutions and interviewed 50 eCommerce companies. We indetified the strong and weak points of other loyalty solutions and match them with customers needs. Then we moved to gather requirements for the future solution solution.

MVP

Having market-oriented requirements, we started to build the MVP version of what in the future would become Open Loyalty. At that time, the project was on the side track, and development prolonged from planned 3 months to over half a year. By the end of 2017, we released MVP version and tested it out with our first customers.

First implementation

The first implementations were crucial, they unveiled many areas to improve, but what's important they proved that our concept meets markets needs. During the next few months, we significantly improved our solution, added various features and integrated it with Magento 1.9. We reached the moment when Open Loyalty could be presented to a wider audience.

Product release

In April'18, we opened our solution to the community. That was an important milestone and one of the best decisions we've made. Open Loyalty leverages modern tech stack, like Symphony, Angular, Elasticseach, Docker or Kubernetes, which attracts developers across the world. With the community engagement push our product forward.
