Cardlytics, the pioneer of Card-Linked Marketing, announced today that its Transaction-Driven™ Marketing solution received a Best-in-Class distinction in a CEB TowerGroup report after an evaluation of card loyalty technology vendors. The CEB TowerGroup analyst cited Cardlytics’ flexible interface, abundant security and control options, and robust operational metrics as key reasons for naming the provider a Best-in-Class offering in all four categories, including Customer Interface, Management & Operations, Security & Control and Enterprise Support.
