eGift Card solution allows businesses to extend their gift card programs
OTTAWA, Nov. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Ackroo Inc. (TSX-V: AKR), a loyalty and rewards technology and services provider,
announced the launch of its online eGift Card solution; an eCommerce
solution that enables businesses to offer the purchasing, gifting and
reloading of eGift Cards through their own website to consumers. Ackroo
eGift Cards can be deployed as an independent online solution or
integrate with a business' existing Ackroo Gift Card and Loyalty
"As more and more consumer commerce moves online, eGift Card purchases
have skyrocketed," said Eamonn Garry, chief executive officer at
Ackroo. "Not only have eGift Cards become more popular with online
consumers, but by adding an eGift Card option, businesses can see as
much as a 90% increase in gift card sales growth."
"Consumer and business expectations are dictating the changing landscape
of online eGift Cards; consumers demand a consistent experience between
the online and 'bricks and mortar' worlds while businesses expect
immediate access to their funds and seamless integration with their
existing payment infrastructure," said Garry. "Ackroo solves these
challenges with an affordable online solution that is easy to use for
both businesses and consumers."
Ackroo's eGift Card platform is currently active in a variety of
merchants and businesses across Canada.
Ackroo enables businesses, merchants and business networks to increase profitability and build
long-term customer relationships through gift card and loyalty rewards
programs. Their web-based solutions provide the power of a massively
scalable software platform in a lightweight online tool that works with
existing point-of-sale equipment making it easy and affordable for
businesses to launch their own customized programs that deliver
immediate return on investment. Ackroo is headquartered in Ottawa,
Canada. For more information, visit: www.ackroo.com.
