From the Paper:

"Gripping Stuff Entertainment (GSE) is an entertainment service provider specialising in movie rentals. Traditionally distribution of videos and DVDs was accomplished via the GSE stores from which they were rented. Senior management has recently decided to migrate from the traditional distribution system to an online version in order to reduce costs resulting from physical storefront rentals and maintenance and also in order expand the customer base. A very real risk is that existing customers will be drawn over to competing home entertainment providers while GSE implements this migration. In order to mitigate this risk and also to increase general customer loyalty to the GSE brand, a loyalty programme will be launched and integrated with the new internet distribution channel. Offering loyalty incentives to those customers who choose to utilise the internet mode of distribution will increase internet sales penetration of the market while increasing overall loyalty to GSE."
