As more consumers shop online, and mobile technologies become ubiquitous, retailers need to offer digital gift cards to give their customers the fast, convenient shopping experience they want.
Gift Card Solutions
Ogloba provides, and processes for you, closed loop branded gift card solutions. Our expertise includes both new platform set-ups and conversions. Our platform aims to replace old-fashioned paper gift vouchers with electronic or mobile gift cards. This includes the issuing of both B2C and B2B cards, as well as the acquiring of the online transactions coming from the integrated cash registers – let us describe it as a small ERP SAP-like system dedicated to your closed loop gift card program. The platform is as easy to use for you as it is for all participants in your organization, from CFO to marketing intern. You can easily and effectively manage your gift card program from a single dashboard, as well as design cards, manage your inventory and orders, and B2B invoices and payments. You can also produce reports and analyze the system’s data, giving you complete control.
Are you ready to take advantage of the 21st century mobile market? Most people now use their smartphone to access the internet and use apps. This means that retailers can no longer just rely on their website, but must take advantage of the growing smartphone market to profit from this changing behavior. Our solutions allow you to create your own mobile transactions ecosystem. Ogloba provides the ability to instantaneously and easily send gifts to friends and family via Facebook, to their mobile phone, or by email. You will no longer hear from your sister, “Thanks for the gift card, but my birthday was yesterday”.
mGiftCard and Social Media Networks
Your bricks-and-mortar operation needs a profitable presence within social networks such as Facebook and RenRen. By sending cards to Facebook walls, your customers create constant awareness of, and generate a word-of-mouth buzz around, your products, brands or campaigns. Such social media marketing is much more than another superficial showcase for technology. Social networks and smartphones are now at the very core of people’s social lives, and our solution is a fantastic opportunity for you to promote your brand on the platforms people use to share and celebrate the happy events in their lives. This Ogloba innovation is undoubtedly a game changer in the gift card market.
Not only do consumers love gift cards, but they hold many benefits for retailers, not least in encouraging customers to spend more, as they often see the gift card as a minimum spend amount.
Ogloba’s innovative and flexible platform allows gift cards for almost any purpose to be configured, and managed. Aside from gifts and rewards, they are used to provide much needed support to relatives who survive on low incomes.
Ogloba’s Smart Redeem feature allows digital gift card payments to be processed directly from the customer’s smartphone via the mGC app, so customers can easily redeem digital gift cards at their local store.
Restricted-loop cards are configured so they can be used across several retailers at one location, such as a shopping mall. They are an effective tool for encouraging repeat visits to the location by customers.
Promotional gift cards are a proven marketing tool and an effective way of reaching new customers. Ogloba helps clients define, implement and track the success of their promotional card strategy.
Customers eagerly await hot new products and demand often outstrips supply. Retailers have limited to supplies and Ogloba has created an innovative “pre-sales card” solution to make distribution more efficient.
Loyalty programs will always be popular because people like “something for nothing”. However, customer expectations have changed, and the old paradigm of points per spend is no longer enough. If managed well, pre-paid programs can instill a much greater sense of loyalty.
