The new online Loyalty Analytics Tool provides subscribers access to Polk’s comprehensive loyalty database containing all light vehicle transactions for all U.S. households for the past 10 years. It also allows clients to retrieve information quickly, so they may query information on loyalty, conquest and defection information from any location with internet access. The Loyalty Analytics Tool contains current year statistics within 60 days of transactions, as well as five years of history of return-to-market transactions in the U.S. market.

“We developed this comprehensive solution in direct response to customer requests for current and easily accessible automotive loyalty data,” said Brad Smith, director of Polk’s loyalty management practice.  “This new solution provides a robust level of access to our loyalty information and allows customers to create flexible and detailed analysis on their schedules.”

The Loyalty Analytics Tool can help customers with their business strategies to retain current owners, mitigate the risk of defection and conquest new customers. Key features of the solution include information on a variety of vehicle characteristics, including manufacturer, make, model and segment information; demographic information, such as age, gender, income or ethnicity; standard geography, including national, state, DMA and ZIP code, along with OEM custom geography; a choice of methodology, either Polk household methodology or disposal methodology; and time period research, by calendar year, industry model year, selected quarters or months.
