Ackroo

Customer loyalty management and gift-card distribution tool

About Ackroo

Ackroo is a customer loyalty software designed for businesses across several industry segments, such as retail, hospitality, petroleum, and automotive. It helps organizations manage gift cards, loyalty marketing, payments, and more on a centralized platform.

Ackroo allows team members to set up, administer, and track currency, unit, and point-based reward programs across multiple locations. The email marketing tool lets employees send notifications to customers about purchase reminders, thank you shout-outs, re-opening notices, product launches, and other marketing campaigns. It enables staff members to create barcoded gift cards, manage customer registrations, generate time-based promo codes, and monitor card balances. Sales professionals can maintain a campaign-specific transaction history with details, such as card numbers, location, transaction type, purchase amount, and date.

Ackroo offers an API, which allows businesses to integrate the platform with several third-party solutions, such as Shopify POS, QuickService POS, Micros RES, Volante, and Hippos POS. The built-in dashboard lets supervisors generate insights into monthly transactions, gift-card circulation, customers, and upcoming trends, among other key metrics.

Increased employee efficiency in regards to the submission and approval of monthly expense reports. Significantly reduced the amount of paper and paper retention given the supporting documentation was stored on the cloud. Reports provided the accounting department insight as to what and where our employees were spending the most during their travel time; allowed our company to arrange corporate discounts.

Pros

Very easy to implement, especially with the multiple general ledger and ERP systems we currently use. The training resources allowed us to easily deploy the program to our employees with minimal assistance from the accounting department. Being able to set up delegate profiles allowed the accounting department the ability to review expense reports prior to employee submission to managers for approval.

Cons

Customer service post implementation was delayed. Routine questions took time to get responses and it was done primarily via support tickets / email. I would strongly suggest a dedicated account manager along with direct contact numbers for support depending on the issue.
