Nudges might include discounts, digital or in-person conversations, follow-ups, reminders, or rewards points that users can redeem in local stores.

A relevant journey for the user, created around her needs, which simultaneously strengthens local economies How? Using the Triggerise platform. We are a digital platform. Imagine Netflix.
