Ackroo goes mobile with the introduction of their mobile POS solution for iPad devices
OTTAWA, April 13, 2015 /CNW/ - Ackroo Inc. (TSX-V: AKR), a gift card, loyalty and rewards technology and services provider, announced the launch of their latest addition to the Ackroo Anywhere platform, Ackroo Pay for Apple iPad. Ackroo Pay is a POS app that allows businesses, operating an Ackroo Gift Card and/or Loyalty Program, to issue and redeem their gift and/or loyalty cards wherever their iPad will take them. The application is in the final approval stage with Apple and is expected to be available in the Apple App Store within the next 2 weeks.
"Ackroo Pay is a very exciting enhancement for Ackroo, our customers and our partners" said Steve Levely, chief executive officer at Ackroo. "Mobile commerce and mobile payment in particular is evolving and growing at an impressive rate for both consumers and businesses and Ackroo Pay allows us to take a large step into this massive ecosystem. Not only does the development of this solution provide merchants the opportunity to run their Ackroo Anywhere program from an Apple iPad device, it also confirms Ackroo's ability to provide innovative mobile application solutions and positions the Company to support other mobile platforms in the future. Ackroo Pay will work side by side with other apps on a single device or can easily integrate directly into merchant or payment branded applications that require the unique gift card and/or loyalty processing that Ackroo brings to the market. This innovation helps both solidify and increase Ackroo's addressable market and further positions us for growth with our customers and our partners."
Ackroo also announces the appointment of Sam Cole to the Board of Director's. Sam brings a wealth of experience as a corporate securities lawyer with a focus on publicly traded microcap companies. The Company looks forward to having Sam assist the organization in the next phases of growth.
In addition, Mr. Eamonn Garry has resigned from the Board of Directors to pursue other interests. Eamonn has played an instrumental role in helping to lead the Company both as an Officer and a Director and is a key reason why the Company has grown into what it is today. The Company would like to thank Eamonn for all of his contributions and wish him the best of luck in his new endeavours.
