Engage is a cloud-based consumer engagement platform that enables brands and retailers to deliver discount rewards and voucher driven customer incentives that are fully controlled by the platform's gamification engine. Its cloud-based infrastructure, which is driven by API's, enables it to easily connect with 3rd party voucher and coupon system providers to offer a seamless consumer experience when issuing coupons, vouchers and cashback rewards from partner systems.
Games range from instant win mechanics and skill-based games to gamified digital loyalty cards. Using gamification to offer higher value prizes and incentives, brands and retailers can attract more consumers to their incentives and drive more product sales through a seamless digital consumer experience offer via the Engage platform.
Engage's cloud-based infrastructure enables third party digital voucher, coupon and cashback partners to connect seamlessly via API to the platform, which allows gamification to be implemented within brand and retail strategies at scale with minimal integration.

This partnership is the culmination of over 12 months of working closely with Valassis to define our joint commercial proposition and I'm delighted to announce this official partnership which significantly extends the reach of our platform to new customers and territories. The scope and scale of the brands our partners can give us access to could be transformational for Dev Clever as we enter an exciting and busy period for the business.
