Travel industry leader Global Connections, Inc. (GCI), a vacation and leisure benefits service and fulfillment provider based in Overland Park, KS, is sharing good news about one of its products.  Branded as Global Perks Plus (GPP),  the easy to use addition to GCI’s suite of travel and leisure related programs is a uniquely transparent interface.  It is designed to engage and reward new and existing customers and to inspire employee loyalty.

Easy to customize

GPP allows qualified companies to provide reasonably priced vacation options and a variety of leisure benefits to both employees and customers.  Fully scalable, and easy to customize, Global Perks Plus is designed to support multiple goals including increasing sales, promoting customer loyalty and driving employee motivation.

“The current business environment heightens awareness for the importance of employee appreciation.  Our GPP platform can be white-labeled to both promote internal team loyalty and customer engagement,” said Melanie Gring, GCI’s Chief Strategic Alliances and Brand Officer.  “We are discovering that the more perks employees and customers receive, the more they connect to the brand or the business.”

Some of the industries that can utilize GPP’s robust platform include automobile dealerships, financial institutions, insurance companies, manufacturers, retail operations, health care organizations, timeshare developers, HOAs and management companies, to name a few. GCI emphasizes that no matter the number of employees or customers a company may have,  Global Perks Plus assists in realizing loyalty.

Customer and employee loyalty

According to Tom Lyons, President and CEO of Global Connections, Inc.,  “Building customer loyalty is a fundamental goal for any company. Today, more than ever, recognizing employees and helping them feel positively allied to their organizations is of primary importance. These basic connections can be shored up by using our user-friendly Global Perks Plus.”

Easy to reserve, book and buy

About two years ago GCI began offering the hub of loyalty benefits to employers who were searching for added benefits to attract and retain employees. The benefits available include vacation resort condominiums, cruises, shopping discounts, hotel accommodations, air travel, and car rentals.  Companies using GPP do not pay for the basic robust menu of perks.  The employees or customers who want to travel or enjoy the ease of purchasing a variety of items and travel opportunities via GPP find user-friendly navigation and reasonable prices.

Global Perks Plus demonstrates a commitment to providing added value to support internal team members and retain customers. Those companies choosing to use Global Perks Plus may offer the entire suite of GPP components or select specific benefits to fit their program. One company may opt to solely offer the rebates and shopping discounts to their team members.  Another may select cruise options and/or lodging accommodations in popular vacation destinations. And still another may take advantage of all the travel and leisure benefits GPP includes. Additionally, the  GPP website may also be branded with a  company logo to ensure external and internal users identify the perks with the organization making them available.
