CHICAGO – Givex announced Friday at The National Restaurant Association Show 2005, the integration between its gift card program and SpeedLine's pizza-specific POS system.
"Givex is happy to be working with a leading pizza-specific POS company such as SpeedLine," Karen Budahazy, a senior vice president at Givex. "This has opened a new vertical for gift cards in the pizza industry. Gift cards may be redeemed in-store, online or through IVR transactions, thus offering convenient forms of gift card redemption to the consumer."
The company's complete line of gift-card services, including card activation, redemption, increment, cancel and balance inquiry, have all been interfaced to the SpeedLine POS system. In addition to real-time transaction processing, customers will be able to use Givex's support services, including 24/7 customer support, online reporting, program administration, card marketing and card production.
According to a news release, SpeedLine is the most recommended POS of the top 100 pizza companies. Its point of sale and multi-site restaurant management tools are designed specifically to address the unique POS requirements of pizza and delivery restaurant chains.
"Many of our customers are interested in increasing revenues through gift card sales," said SpeedLine president John de Wolde. "SpeedLine and Givex now make it easy for them to do this."
