Antavo Empowers BMW Inside Edge Rewards Program

March 8, 2022

Antavo has been working together with BMW (UK) Ltd on Inside Edge, a highly innovative, industry-first, B2B loyalty program. 

Powered by Antavo’s loyalty technology, Inside Edge offers company drivers a revolving selection of rewards to help them save time, save money, and enjoy the ride, including free coffee, complimentary skincare, access to apps and thought leadership content that facilitates their work, and more.

The loyalty program also serves to help build a better relationship with drivers and keep the BMW brand top-of-mind when the key moment arrives for drivers to consider their next vehicle for professional or personal use.

“BMW Inside Edge is the first of its kind in the car industry. So, we’re one step ahead in trying to become more than just a manufacturer to our customers. It’s about helping BMW Company Car Drivers get more from their car. And as we get to know them better through the programme, we can tailor the benefits.” – Michelle Roberts, Marketing Director, BMW UK

The program is a collaboration between the premium automobile brand and multiple agencies, with the technology provided by Antavo’s Loyalty Management Platform. The result is a loyalty program that is the first of its kind in the luxury automobile space, which has made it possible for BMW to connect with company car drivers — an audience which has traditionally been more difficult to reach.

Knowing that this audience has a unique set of needs, Inside Edge offers exciting work-related benefits, such as free access to Expensify so drivers can track and manage receipts, as well as Peptalk, an app that lets drivers listen to motivational speakers on their way to and from the office.

“It’s an amazing opportunity to work with BMW UK on a truly innovative loyalty program. Inside Edge demonstrates the power of community-centric, reward-driven loyalty systems that build true connection with the brand. Luckily, loyalty technologies, like Antavo, are rapidly advancing, and they enable more and more creative loyalty concepts for brand and retailers.” – Attila Kecsmar, CEO & Co-founder of Antavo
