Ackroo, a gift card, loyalty and rewards technology and services provider, has released its newest advancement to the Ackroo Anywhere platform with the integration of i-Lube POS software from Inter-link Resources.

Now, the current and prospective Ackroo customers, who want or plan to use Inter-link Resources i-Lube point of sale software solution, can utilise a fully integrated version of the Ackroo Anywhere gift card and loyalty solution.

The fully combined edition of Ackroo Anywhere comprises the entire gift card, loyalty and promotional features as well as added features such as departmental and SKU based loyalty, mobile application options, among other facilities.

Ackroo said that the integrated solution has gone live across eight Minit Lube locations in Alberta, Canada, and is now available for all quick-lube clients using i-Lube POS.

Ackroo CEO Steve Levely said: “Integration to i-Lube is a great advancement for the Ackroo Anywhere platform. More and more merchants are moving towards fully integrated POS solutions for the operational ease and advancement it brings.

“With this shift also comes the demand for 3rd party gift card and loyalty providers like Ackroo to integrate to these platforms in order to provide a single point of sale for all currency types (credit, debit, gift card, loyalty etc.).

“This partnership is yet another step towards increasing our addressable market through integration and helps to further position us for success."
