Customer activation and engagement strategies
We've published a suite of new product documentation to help you take advantage of Galileo's capabilities to drive customer activation and engagement. We have also reorganized much of the card-related content to make it easier for you to find what you're looking for, whether it be business cases or implementation instructions.
- Maximizing Customer Activation Rates — A new guide to help you get your new customers to start spending on your platform and strategies to keep customers engaged
- Choose a Card Strategy — A new guide that explains the card products that Galileo offers and how you can use those products to meet your business goals
