Our testimonials

 

"We don’t have a retail salesforce so epoints helps us gain a presence we’ve not had before. With epoints, we can ensure that focus is given to our brand and that it is a key priority for retailers when creating their shopping list. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with epoints to drive NPD and the core range in the convenience sector.”  


Tom Cornes

National Account Manager Wholesale  

 




“We have field sales callership, but we don’t reward retailers. That’s what we want to do with epoints. It is an important journey for us."


Jennifer Hill

Head of Field Sales   

“Despite being the largest wine company in the UK with a market leading share of the convenience channel, there is still work to be done on maximising the distribution of our portfolio across this sector of the trade. This is vital to the long term growth of the business and by joining with epoints, we can better influence the purchasing decisions of retailers by rewarding them for meeting set criteria.”  


Thomas Joyce-Brown

Senior Customer Marketing Manager     





“Interested to see brands coming together to reward as one... easier to collect as rewarded by multiple suppliers (in many ways)"                S Khman, SP10  


   “epoints has helped me to consider stocking more lines that I had never thought of stocking before." B Nathawani, BS13     

  “We are delighted that suppliers are going down the syndicated reward route. For one well known brand I think I now have 5 loyalty cards and can't access them!”                                     

Rav Garcha, NISA

  “We try to offer 2 ranges in most products and feel its important to give people a choice. Why wouldn't we stock items that sell and making extra money is a great bonus. Really made us try a few new lines we might not have tried other wise."  Nealum, SP10  


  “Really like the simplicity of the scheme."  

J Johny, EX34
