"What exactly does Access Development do? Some kind of programming?"

With a name like Access Development, we get that question frequently. But most people quickly catch on that we're an engagement and loyalty company.

But then the followup question to that is, "Well, how exactly do you build engagement and loyalty?"

The answer is low-cost member benefits, employee perks, premium incentives, upsell packages, and so on.

We do our best to explain it, but sometimes these things need to be expressed in a story.

Which is why we've rolled out a new case study section on AccessDevelopment.com.

As 2015 draws to a close, those of us at Access Development wanted to take a moment to say thank you to every one of our clients, partners, and contacts who helped make this year the best one yet. Along with our best wishes to each of you, here’s a brief recap of why 2015 has been so special - and why we think 2016 will be even better.

It was an unprecedented year in our product development, as we introduced five key solutions intended to address specific needs:

 Access turned 30 this year. 

If we were embodied in an individual, we might have spent this year moping around, complaining about how hard it is to recover from parties that end at 2am. Or constantly telling people how 30 "Doesn't really feel all that different."

Instead, we're glad to report that 2014 has been the best in company history.

In keeping with the traditions of the holidays, we wanted to send out an update to our friends and colleagues on what’s been a very eventful 2014. Here are some of our more meaningful highlights from this past year:

It’s holiday shopping season. People have abandoned their families to shop on Thanksgiving, then stood outside in the wee hours of the morning on Black Friday waiting for doors to open.

They’ve dutifully ignored work (on occasion) to browse online retailers. They’ve sharpened their elbows and mobilized through intense crowds at malls, warehouse stores, and big box retailers.

People will go to great lengths to get a great deal. They’ll do things outside their normal scope of behavior, especially this time of year.

In fact, if you browse through our collection of coupon statistics, you’ll see that valuable merchant content inspires people to try a lot of new things.

Even mobile payments.

So you’ve built and launched a loyalty program. Congratulations!

Access is unlike any other place I've ever worked - including startups, massive corporations, agencies, an NBA franchise, among others. I've never seen a place with the unique culture and cohesion that Access has. Maybe it's the hiring process that's as much about learning attitudes as capability, or so many employees hanging around in spandex after biking to work during the summer, but there's a definite comfort level among the ranks here.

One thing is clear though: once the organization sets a goal, we go ALL IN. This competitive drive pays off in our efforts to serve our clients and their customers.It also pays off in our dedication to serving our community and those in need.

Like the last several years, Access staged a food drive that spanned the two weeks following Halloween. Employees were divided into a dozen teams (loosely based on department) and tasked with coming up with as much food as possible, to be donated to the Utah Food Bank.
