Ackroo Launches Online eGift Card Solution

eGift Card solution allows businesses to extend their gift card programs online

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 Program.

"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.
