Our Mission

We believe that digitalisation creates new opportunities for companies to build stronger customer loyalty. Hence, we support companies with the smart use of digital technologies to design their individual customer loyalty program and to establish personal communication with their customers.

In this way, we strengthen businesses’ relationship with their clients and activate loyal customers as brand ambassadors.

Our Story

Founder Franz Tretter has already implemented the first projects in the direction of digital customer cards via contactless customer loyalty cards in 2013.

Together with the co-founders, they moved with development by integrating digital loyalty cards into existing apps. This was followed by the large-scale expansion to have more than 700 satisfied customers in 25 countries.

hello again combines expert knowledge from two companies: Szene1 and Runtastic. Through the community-building at Szene1 it has the know-how to implement emotions in the area of customer loyalty. In addition, it has the technical app-know-how thanks to the experience with the fitness-platform Runtastic.
