Knowing your customer is key for any business endeavour. This is especially true when releasing a banking card open to the masses. How do you know who your good client are? How do you know who to target for campaigns, where to advertise your brand, how to build trust and loyalty, if you don't know much about your clients and their behaviour? Each month you will receive a complex report about the behaviour of your clients, so you can better understand your client. This is where we can help - our concierge technology and Artificial Intelligence is the most advanced on the market, giving an insight into where your clients holiday, what they do in their spare time, where they eat, drink and stay overnight. We can identify key brands that traits and identify those clients that are key to your brand, and identify the best ways to both attract new clients and reward the current ones. We can look at your members' as a whole, or an individual member.. We can quickly tell history of each member, the number of requests they make, how many they actually complete on, and their spend levels (ie are they booking the Ritz or the Holiday Inn). It allows us to really quickly understand the client and tailor our responses to them

best concierge app on the market

December 2019 sees the launch of our concierge app which is set to be the most advanced concierge app on the market. All credit card clients will have a version of this app, rebranded for them, for their members' use.

The Sincura Concierge app has been in development for 9 months now and will be released in December 2019. When developing our app we looked at our competitor apps and ran months of analysis and tests through them. We don't believe they work correctly or efficiently. For example, we enlisted the help of 5 premium banking clients who all had vastly different profiles - from their wealth, to their likes, to their age, to their localities. The app should have known this and presented answers, offers and promotions tuned to them. But it didn't. Our app is different, it comes with in-built reporting, behaviour monitors, and watches the clients using the app to understand what they are reading, what they are engaging with, and build us a profile from their eyes.

read the review of sincura ten lifestyle quintessentially amex concierges

While other concierges boasted that they will acknowledge a request within 3 hours – we didn’t believe that’s was good enough. On average it took less than 2 minutes for a client to receive an email acknowledging that their request has been received, viewed, loaded and allocated to an expert to start working on. We closed over 50% of requests within 10 minutes, 80% within 3 hours and 99% within 1 business day. In fact, in the same time that other concierge services would take to reply to your message we would have the clients sat in their restaurant enjoying their meal organised by us. We openly publish the Revolut feedback as we are so proud of what our clients are saying about us. We are the only concierge confident enough to do this and be judged by our clients. You can read the comments people leave for us - click below to see more.
