Chalfont, PA – Ackroo Inc. (TSX-V: AKR), a loyalty and rewards technology and services provider, announced today that it has completed integration to Datacap Systems’ GIFTePay™ solution. This integration will allow over 500 different POS software solutions to integrate to the Ackroo gift card and loyalty solution set. Current and prospective merchants of Ackroo that utilize restaurant and retail management systems like Squirrel, Maitre D and Logivison just to name a few, will now have the ability to integrate directly to the Ackroo platform regardless of what payment processor or terminals they are using. This creates more options for the merchant, opportunities for Datacap’s resellers to work with current and prospective Ackroo customers, and opens up the door for Ackroo to support a very large mass of merchants who require or prefer direct gift card and/or loyalty integration through their POS software solution.
“Integration to Datacap Systems is an extremely exciting advancement for Ackroo.” said Steve Levely, chief executive officer at Ackroo. “This work significantly increases our addressable market while also providing a great value add to any of our current and prospective customers that utilize one of Datacap’s partnered POS solutions.
