Ackroo Inc., a loyalty and rewards technology provider headquartered in Ottawa, announced yesterday that it has launched its 250thcustomer location – John’s Deli, a local independent grocer in Kingston. Ackroo’s web-based loyalty and rewards software platform enables small- to medium-sized merchants to launch their own gift card and loyalty program, allowing them to compete with their big box competitors’ programs at a fraction of the cost.
John’s Deli is a local independent grocer with a focus on providing local and organic produce from suppliers in and around the Kingston area. This is the first gift card and loyalty program for the small grocer.
“I like that it’s flexible and it works with my business,” said Gib Grant, owner of John’s Deli. “We initially launched it as a gift card program and we have the ability to turn on the loyalty program feature when we’re ready. It works on all our payment terminals, so we didn’t have to install anything new. It’s a simple system that’s easy for our cashiers and our customers. That’s key.”
Eamonn Garry, chief operations officer at Ackroo commented, “We’re glad to welcome John’s Deli into the Ackroo family and we’re excited to have reached this 250th customer location milestone so early in the new year. It’s great to be able to offer independent merchants like John’s Deli the opportunity to launch an affordable loyalty program. It’s what Ackroo is all about.”
