13 September 2016


We are excited to announce that the issuing and redemption of Gift Cards is now available via the Intouch Halo Value Added Service.



  • The Gift Card service feature is integrated to the POS, thereby removing the need to capture transactions in more than one place and the associated risk of cashier error.
  • The Gift Card service facilitates the processing of multiple token types – Gift Card with a magnetic stripe, barcode, Virtual Voucher or QR codes.
  • Flexible load and redemption options allow customers to use the gift card several times thereby ensuring repeat purchases.
  • The Gift Card may be loaded and redeemed at any store within the group, which makes the facility exclusively to the group.
  • Standard Gift Card Sold and Redemption Reports are available within the Intouch ERP System.
  • Monthly audit report will be available upon request and/or monthly basis.



  • It’s been widely speculated that purchases using a Gift Card can increase sales by up to 20% higher than the value of the gift card as customers are likely to spend on higher valued items, or are inclined to spend the full value when paying with a Gift Card
  • Gift Cards increase brand awareness by putting branded plastic gift cards in the hands of hundreds of possible customers.
  • Repeat business – Customers have to visit a store to spend their gift card.
