Connexions Loyalty, an Affinion Group company and leading global full-service provider of loyalty programs, had a strong year in 2017, driven by over 50% year over year growth in gross loyalty redemption transactional volume, which grew from $2.1 billion to $3.2 billion. The momentum has continued, as 2018 is already setting up to be a breakthrough year for the company.

In February 2018, Affinion Group, through its Connexions Loyalty subsidiary, acquired one of its top technology partners, Tavisca Solutions Pvt. Ltd, an India-based travel technology solutions company that works with leisure travel companies to support and grow their online travel business. The acquisition aims to help Connexions Loyalty fully leverage their high quality technology platforms, which will cater to specific customer requests and promote healthy customer retention, acquisition, and loyalty.

For future growth, Connexions Loyalty understands the need to adapt to frictionless omni-channel interactions at every phase of the customer journey and deliver on personalization with a human touch. To do this, Tavisca Solutions is concentrating on talent acquisition and plans to double their workforce before the end of 2019 by recruiting individuals with proven proficiency and multi-disciplinary expertise in domains like Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, chatbot developments, mobile technology and omni-channel delivery.

Tavisca Solutions will be the primary hub for the company's loyalty platform and cloud technology development. This will not only create new job opportunities in the region, but will also help establish Pune as a key travel technology hub in India. 

Tavisca Solutions and Connexions Loyalty partnership will create the premier online travel loyalty programs. The impact of this development will raise standards all across the online travel sector in terms of both customer satisfaction and efficient technology.
