The days of coupon cutting and rushing to redeem that “limited time offer” are over. People can now save money anywhere and at any time with the new rewards platform, Plenti. Abundant in savings potential, Plenti offers rewards through a multi-category platform that allows consumers to earn and use Plenti points on a wide-range of products. For instance, points earned on necessary items like groceries can be used toward purchasing something completely unrelated, like a new pair of shoes. Finally broccoli has a grander purpose.
To bring these savings to the U.S., American Express and EffectiveUI partnered in a multi-year engagement. Together, the companies created a fully responsive website that makes it easy to receive and use Plenti points while shopping the digital marketplace.
A user experience like no other, the Plenti program was the perfect project for EffectiveUI to display their UX/UI expertise. Tasked with creating a consistent and cohesive digital environment, EffectiveUI ensured that the Plenti user could effortlessly find what they needed on the site.
The Plenti project required a focus on brand consistency and cohesiveness across all digital channels. As the EffectiveUI team created the consistent design, they also had to combat constantly changing requirements, legal restrictions and development limitations. EffectiveUI was further tasked with clearly communicating Plenti's flexibility and benefits to the end user while driving enrollment and offer activation to the site.
To ensure a successful launch, EffectiveUI provided oversight and leadership across multiple workstreams including:
EffectiveUI delivered industry-leading user experience design for the website. Together with American Express' German development team, EffectiveUI validated and implemented design, user interaction, features and page content across all breakpoints. This allowed for a consistent and effortless user experience for the consumer.
Further deliverables and activities produced by the EffectiveUI team included: workshops, program summits, roadmaps, technical feasibility assessments, functional prototypes, wireframes, visual design and comps, style guides, usability tests and more.
After a successful launch in May 2015, savers came to Plenti by the millions. In the first few weeks alone, the program enrolled roughly 10 million users. In conjunction with Plenti program specific marketing and EffectiveUI's involvement in sponsor promotions from Macy's, AT&T, ExxonMobil, RiteAid, Nationwide, Enterprise, Hulu and Direct Energy digital experiences, the Plenti program has experienced significant brand awareness, enrollment and offer activation in a short period of time. Further, the fully responsive website allows customers to easily shop and save amongst several Plenti partners from the comfort of their home.Work with Us
