A. Customer Loyalty Accelerator (CLA) is suitable for a diverse range of businesses in the retail, service and hospitality sector and creates a win-win-win between the customer, merchant, and customer service employee.

If printed rewards cards are desired, we offer them at no cost to the merchant.  For more information, contact customer support by web help, email or phone at https://customerloyaltyaccelerator.com/contact/help/.
