WHAT IS CORTEX ENGAGE?
It’s a powerful platform that collates diverse strands of data to provide the foundation for company-wide employee recognition, reward, sales incentivisation and workplace engagement.
Data blending promotes brand health by encouraging staff to adapt behaviours to compete among themselves, and to monitor their own progress toward reaching the required levels of proficiency. All backed-up by a series of core recognition, redemption, learning and community tools.
Cortex Engage connects business and people.

Volvo First Class
Having run cash-based sales incentives for a number of years, Volvo had inadvertently engendered a sales team’s focus on hitting targets only for the reward that was on offer. Which in turn had created an imbalanced sales-only focus across the dealer network – ignoring the delivery of key brand behaviours.
In 2013, Volvo had major growth and brand development aspiration – all of which required a modern engagement and incentive platform as part of a new strategy.
An advanced and expansive Cortex Loyalty plus Cortex Synapse data solution that is run as a full-service solution with RLA agency full account management, creative, analysis and marcomms activity.
Run in collaboration with Volvo’s Sales, Aftersales, Operations, Marketing and Academy teams, Volvo First Class is a whole-business programme targeting a broad variation of soft and hard behaviours - with 1,500 unique users, 8 regions and unique personalised logins enabling gamification, leagues, quizzes, badges, spot prizes, Hall of Fame, Amazon access and a series of exclusive dinners and international events from Rome to Japan.
With 145% growth and the coveted ‘Franchise of the Year’ accolade in 2018, Volvo are one of the biggest successes of the last 4 years.
