Saint Petersburg, FL (PRWEB) February 14, 2011
Kobie Marketing, a leading loyalty marketing and customer retention agency, today announced it was selected as a Top Business in America by DiversityBusiness.com. Despite the tough economy, Kobie achieved a three-year growth rate of 63% and more than doubled in size to secure the award. Kobie was selected from over 750,000 businesses in the United States based on its sales and innovative business model.
“The award is targeted at the most important segment of the United States economy – America’s privately held companies. It has become the most recognized and respected compilation of companies that truly differentiate themselves in the market place in a time when doing so has never been more important,” said Kenton Clarke, President and CEO of DiversityBusiness.com. “The award distinguishes Kobie as one of America’s top private companies.”
While many organizations shrank in size during the recent recession, Kobie led the loyalty marketing industry by delivering a superior customer experience on behalf of its clients. And Kobie more than doubled the number of its employees and landed significant new contracts with top brands in the retail, travel, financial service, telecommunication, and hospitality industries.
“Kobie Marketing has exceeded our wildest expectations, charting a new direction for the loyalty marketing industry,” said Michael Hemsey, Kobie’s President. “Being acknowledged as one of America’s Top Businesses and helping our clients deliver the best customer experience possible is an honor and a privilege.”
The award-winning agency plans to maintain its high growth rate through continuous technology innovation, as well as an ongoing focus on improving the customer experience. Alchemy, the latest version of Kobie’s market leading loyalty technology platform, gives retailers instant access at the Point-of-Sale (POS) and a new mobile loyalty solution allows clients to reach their customers with real-time offers. Other plans include a redesign of the customer experience at the point of redemption.
