New York — AppCard, provider of an innovative customer-loyalty platform, and CAP Software, the point-of-sale software of choice for many retailers, today announced a strategic partnership to help retailers drive customers back to brick-and-mortar stores and optimize profitability.
Retailers using the AppCard platform with CAP Software’s POS system will enjoy more than 90 types of real-time analytics reports and will benefit from business intelligence insights regarding all aspects of their store’s activity. With AppCard, retailers learn what their customers want and engage each customer with personalized offers, rewards, and free gifts. Customers receive offers and digital receipts in the retailers’ branded storefront displayed in the AppCard smartphone app or web account. The AppCard platform requires no integration with the POS, and the setup takes less than 20 minutes, enabling CAP Software customers to enjoy the benefit of this partnership as of day one.
“We are delighted to be partnering with CAP Software, which offers a wonderful POS with an exceptional service culture and customer experience,” commented Yair Goldfinger, CEO and co-founder of AppCard. “The CAP Software – AppCard offering provides large and small retailers with an integration-free implementation of a loyalty program that enhances the shopping experience, increases customer retention, and optimizes revenue.”
“Small retailers today are facing stiff competition from many avenues, reducing profits and driving up marketing and customer retention costs,” says Will Atkinson, President of CAP Software. “The fact that CAP Software can partner with AppCard to provide this simple loyalty solution without a cumbersome software integration is very exciting. We look forward to working with AppCard to benefit our reseller partners and retailers alike.”
