Protect Your Corporate Discount Program With SheerID Verification

Corporate discount programs can be a customer acquisition goldmine. Delivering personalized marketing to a consumer community based on their core identity—such as their occupation —moves them to act.

Co-workers form a powerful consumer community that is deeply connected. The long hours spent at the office and the thrill of sharing successes are intimate experiences that create a unique bond amongst colleagues.

How SheerID Helps Your Corporate Discount Program

Activate a New Acquisition Channel

A corporate discount program can be a powerful customer acquisition tool. It allows you to reward employees at your corporate partners with exclusive discounts or offers that aren’t available to the general public. By backing your offer with SheerID, you ensure your high-value offer is protected from fraud.

Prevent Revenue Loss From Discount Fraud

Employment verification prevents fraudulent use of discounts by using instant digital verification to ensure a person is currently employed at that company. Many companies use coupon codes, but these can easily go viral and are often fraudulently redeemed by shoppers who never earned them.

  • When using coupon codes alone, fraudulent redemption of personalized offers can be as high as 35%.

Encourage Word of Mouth

Consumer communities have strong networks, and when a good thing comes their way, they spread the word. Research shows that 97% of employees who receive a personalized offer will tell a colleague about it.

Corporate discount programs activate the same kind of sharing. An employee who used their 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, and with employment verification, that’s just what you want.

Eliminate Manual Process

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 Employment verification, employees can redeem the promotion online instantly, eliminating the hassle of in-store visits or customer service calls and optimizing conversion.
