The Evolving partnership has enabled Orange Belgium to deliver over 4 million targeted rewards to customers, contributing to their becoming number 1 on the Belgian telecom market in terms of customer satisfaction towards loyalty. By offering gifts, Orange Thank You is also an incentive to download the mobile app and has a massive impact on My Orange App adoption.
