Protect Your Discounts by Verifying Active Employment
If your organization has or wants to launch a discount program for employees of specific companies, you want to ensure only eligible customers can redeem your offers.
SheerID’s digital verification engine provides this security by instantly confirming your customers are currently employed by the company you’re partnering with. This protects your margins, prevents fraudulent use of coupon codes, and gives you the confidence to offer high-value discounts and promote them broadly.

How SheerID Helps Your Corporate Discount Program
Activate a New Acquisition Channel
A corporate discount program can help you acquire customers by using exclusive offers to reward employees at your corporate partners. Research shows that exclusive offers available to only a targeted group can make up to 80% of consumers try a new brand.
Prevent Revenue Loss
Corporate discount fraud is rampant. Employees can retain a company ID long after they move on to another job, and mass partner coupon codes can easily go viral and be redeemed by ineligible shoppers.
SheerID prevents this fraud by ensuring only customers who are currently employed by your corporate partner can redeem the discount you’re offering. This protects your margins and increases the ROI of your program.
Encourage Word of Mouth
Employees have strong relationships with their colleagues, and when a good thing comes their way, they spread the word. Research shows that more than 90% of teachers, nurses, first responders, and the military would share a personalized offer with others in their profession.
An employee who used a corporate discount to stay in a luxurious hotel or buy a fancy new outfit is going to rave about it at the office. That kind of praise will make your offer go viral, which is exactly what you want.
Eliminate Manual Processes
Many brands verify eligibility for their corporate discount program through a manual process, such as requiring shoppers to show a pay stub in person. But manual verification strains internal resources and consumes valuable time.
With SheerID’s digital verification engine, employees can instantly redeem your promotion online. This increases conversions by eliminating the need for a customer to visit a store to make a purchase, or call your customer service team to have the discount approved.
