LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Annex Cloud, a technical solutions provider of advanced personalized and experiential customer retention and loyalty solutions to businesses in both B2B and B2C, announced their inclusion in the 2020 Gartner Market Guide for Loyalty Management. The report shows that CMO’s are increasing budgets for loyalty and that 64% plan to increase their investment in the next fiscal year. This is significant in that loyalty has been a modest marketing budget item in terms of overall marketing spend according to Gartner.
