Introduction to Open Loyalty

Open Loyalty is a headless, API-first loyalty platform. Unlike old-fashioned and monolithic software, it is easy to integrate with and ensures complete flexibility, speed, and efficiency at all levels.
The core of Open Loyalty is REST API, and on top of that - there is an Admin UI (Admin Panel) designed with top loyalty professionals around the globe to help you access Members' data, launch targeted Campaigns, and manage Rewards.
There is a variety of applications for Open Loyalty: from building omnichannel loyalty programs through managing complex loyalty modules to extending your SaaS products and mobile applications. It's a set of flexible tools that we call building blocks - so you can cherry-pick the mechanisms that support your unique customer loyalty journeys.

Admin Panel overview

Open Loyalty, due to the wide range of capabilities it offers, has been divided into several main sections so that you can easily and freely navigate through the system.
Below you can find a brief description of each of the sections to help you get to know our system and take your first steps as quickly as possible.
The main sections of Open Loyalty are:
  • Dashboard - contains metrics, statistics, trends, and charts that give you a quick overview of the Members' activity
  • Members - access Members' data and activities, create Segments and Custom Events
  • Campaigns - launch targeted Campaigns; build Rules composed of Conditions and Effects
  • Tiers - create and manage Tiers according to your preferred structure
  • Wallets - access units ledger, configure expiry and pending settings
  • Rewards - manage redemption options available to Members
