Belly, the Chicago-based customer loyalty startup, is expanding its feature set in an attempt to help businesses boost their Yelp ratings. The company works with about 6,000 merchants — the majority of which are small or mid-sized businesses — to help them digitize customer loyalty and rewards programs to make it easier to track loyal customers and analyze which promotions work best.
