LONDON, April 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Givex, a global technology company which powers gift cards, omni-channel loyalty and cloud-based POS solutions across 50 countries, and the Rezidor Hotel Group, operator of Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson hotels in EMEA, announce the launch of their personalised online gift card.
Customers can now order a gift card through the Rezidor website and make it entirely personal by using their own image on the card or choosing one from a Radisson Blu and Park Inn by Radisson hotel's wide selection from the image gallery. The Rezidor Hotel Group, which operates a portfolio of over 430 hotels across 70+ countries in EMEA, has worked with Givex since 2009 for its B2B and B2C gift card programmes. In addition to physical gift cards, Givex also offers gift cards over all channels, including e-gift cards and mobile gift cards.
"For the past four years, our loyal guests have used our gift cards to pamper their loved ones in a very special way. And now with the possibility to make the gift cards so very personal, our guests can truly make an impression. It's the perfect gift with a personal touch!" says Eric De Neef, Rezidor's Senior Vice President of Marketing, Brands & CRM.
"Rezidor was looking for a new way to enhance their already successful gift card programme and we are proud to have been the preferred partner to help them achieve their innovative ambitions," says Fiona O'Neill, Director of Sales Givex EMEA. "Gift cards are extremely popular no matter the time of year and the ability to personalise them makes them even more of a special gift for any occasion. This would be a valuable service for any company to drive further gift card sales."
