In addition to the new loyalty programme Future Platforms collaborated with new providers of membership management services to ensure that they deliver a terrific experience for key journeys like class booking, introducing a friend, and finding a new trainer. The app has become the focal point for driving a larger digital change within Virgin Active.
After a successful introduction in South Africa, the new experience will soon be made available in another 8 global markets.
