Eagle Eye

Eagle Eye is a leading SaaS company that creates digital connections enabling personalised, real-time marketing through coupons, loyalty, apps, subscriptions and gift services. It’s cloud-based platform, Eagle Eye AIR, provides the most flexible and scalable loyalty and promotions capability in the world. It serves some of the world’s best-known retailers, including Asda, Tesco, Morrisons, Waitrose and John Lewis & Partners, JD Sports and Pret a Manger in the UK, Loblaws, Southeastern Grocers and Giant Eagle, in North America, and the Woolworths Group in Australia.

The Company was founded in 2003, with its origins traced back to a simple yet ingenious idea by founder, Steve Rothwell. His challenge of how to buy a round of drinks in the pub while being stuck at home led to the inception of the digital beer coupon concept. Over the years, Eagle Eye has grown significantly, driven by its Golden Rule to treat people as they would like to be treated, whether customers or employees. As Eagle Eye believes that in order to be the best company to work with, you have to be the best company to work for. Today, more than 750 million personalised offers are executed via the platform every week, and it currently hosts over 200 million individual loyalty members for businesses globally.

In January 2023, Eagle Eye acquired a French business, Untie Nots, creating a larger international group. Eagle Eye now benefits from Untie Nots’ technology AI and deep machine learning capabilities. In January 2024, Eagle Eye launched EagleAI, ‘Personalised Promotions’, a next-generation data science solution for hyper-personalisation, already being used by leading retailers worldwide including Carrefour, Auchan and Pattison Food Group. Untie Nots’ AI-powered Challenges solution has since rebranded as ‘EagleAI – Personalised Promotions’, bringing both AI-powered solutions under the EagleAI brand.

Establishing meaningful digital connections with consumers has never been more crucial. Retailers worldwide are evaluating the optimal ways to offer highly targeted, personalised promotions and loyalty programmes to their customer base, in response to changing consumer shopping behaviour, the inflationary crisis and the advances in cloud-native technologies, data science and AI. Eagle Eye remains at the forefront of this digital transformation, helping retailers and grocers increase sales from customers and retain their loyalty. The loyalty market is currently estimated to be worth $10.2 billion worldwide and is projected to reach $22.8 billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR between 2023 and 2028 of 17.5%.
