Kangaroo overview

What is Kangaroo?

Kangaroo is a loyalty marketing platform designed to serve businesses of all types and sizes, within any industry. The solution offers a collection of features that help organizations engage, retain, and reward customers through custom loyalty programs, automated marketing, digital gift cards, rewards, and more. Organizations are able to enroll clients to programs, send relevant offers to targeted customers, and get performance insights.

Kangaroo allows users to create custom loyalty programs and personalize them to match their organization’s brand identity. Users can choose to reward customers by “visit” or by “spend” and using the QuickScan feature, customers are able to earn and redeem their points by scanning a QR code via the Kangaroo mobile app. The auto-marketing engine helps target customers with relevant offers via SMS, email and push campaigns. Using the geo-location feature, users can attract nearby customers, while the traffic booster helps boost off-peak times sales.

Organizations are able to create custom branded digital gift cards as well as promote products using the à la carte rewards feature to award customers for purchasing a specific product or service. Kangaroo’s ‘one tap’ feature helps keep customers engaged by sending promotions to customers with a single tap on a smartphone. Built-in CRM tools allow organizations to learn more about their customers and build stronger relationships.

Users can receive weekly performance analytics either by email or SMS as well as measure and monitor campaign success in real time via the dashboard. Kangaroo provides users with insights about customers’ shopping behavior and trends, and programs can be adjusted from any device, anywhere.

Helped to reward my repeat customers :)

Used weekly for 6-12 months

Review Source: Capterra

Overall, Kangaroo has proved a success for myself and my business, and my customers are very satisfied that I am now able to give them a loyalty rewards program.

Pros
I run a small scale business but we have fantastic profits and a lot of repeat customers, and Kangaroo was able to help me develop my own rewards program for my loyal & dedicated customers/clients. Kangaroo was very easy to learn and to navigate, which reduced the time it took to be able to achieve the rewards system that I wanted to great. When you're running a business with a close-knit team but have high production demands, time is very important, and I praise Kangaroo for helping me develop my rewards system without forcing me into spending too much time trying to learn how to navigate the software.

Cons
I don't have any cons; I still use Kangaroo on my site!

Best option for Lightspeed

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-12-31
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
The biggest advantage is that it is fully integrated with Lightspeed POS and E-comm. So, it helps us to create a seamless customer experience. The basic features, such as tracking customer purchase history in analytics and being able to send offers to all of the customers, works at least as well as other loyalty programs.

Cons
A lot of the additional features promised, such as being able to do targeted campaigns based on purchase history and promotions based on category, don't work as promised. The software doesn't capture the information necessary to do targeted campaigns. And, when you try to do a promotion based on a category, you can't select the category from Lightspeed. You have to tag all of the products, which is a lot of extra work.

Our Choice for Rewards and Loyalty

Review Source: Capterra

We're still in pre-launch, but so far so good. Once we get a critical number of players signed up I'll be able to begin using the marketing features resident within Kangaroo.

Pros
The Kangaroo team has been a joy to work with as we required some customization to their standard platform. Everyone has been super responsive and helpful and the customers are excited to roll this new technology out beginning March 1.

Cons
Getting the payment customization is taking more time and effort than I planned for, but I believe that it will get implemented as planned shortly.

A Rewards System that Grows with Your Business

Used daily for 1-2 years
Reviewed 2019-12-18
Review Source: Capterra

Customer retention is very vital to several businesses. Many people hate how cell phone service companies always try to market to get new customers into contracts while neglecting their long time customers and not providing the best service/deals/etc. I see the majority of my sales from 80% as returning customers. So it's important to me to keep reminding them that I should be a destination for their shopping. The rewards does a great deal to keep bringing people back to me while I utilize social media to attract new customers.

Pros
I love how Kangaroo Rewards integrates with my Lightspeed POS system. It is very straightforward and easy to use. I can customize how my customers receive points/rewards/bonuses and more! It feature automatic campaigns that reach out to my at-risk customers that reminds them that I still should be part of their shopping experience/reminders. I like the support the company gives to the users. They are always willing to improve the rewards system and also willing to listen to make changes that I find not useful/difficult/confusing. We are part of the top 5 users of Kangaroo Rewards in the franchise that I am in and it's been a great experience so far!

Cons
My major complaint to the company was the layout on the administrator's website. I find it very difficult to navigate and find exactly what I need. Some of the self-service FAQ's have been down for a bit but they are finally back up. At a conference I attended, Kangaroo Rewards assured to me that there is an update coming and will be available soon that addresses all my concerns! So it's exciting to see that they are listening to user feedback.
