With the new Tango Card for Salesforce app (www.tangocard.com/salesforce), sending a gift card literally takes seconds. After installing the free app, just look up a contact or lead, choose a card, write a message, and hit send. Gift card options include the Tango Card as well as digitally delivered gift cards from major retail brands including Starbucks and Fandango. Through a partnership with Treat, sending a beautiful physical greeting card also becomes as simple as sending an email. Additionally there is "zero-click" integration with Concur Technologies. For any purchase made with a linked Concur® account, a receipt image for any purchase is posted directly to an open Concur expense report. This integration finally creates a simple way to properly expense and account for enterprise gift card purchases.  

"Sales teams, customer service teams, recruiters, and others spend over $10 billion annually on gift cards, and many of these teams also use huge SaaS platforms like Salesforce," says David Leeds, CEO and Founder of Tango Card. "We created this dedicated Salesforce app to dramatically simplify the process of buying a gift card. Perhaps more importantly, doing this through Salesforce empowers teams with great business intelligence and real power to follow-up on cards they have sent. It also provides a slick way to complete holiday gift card purchases."

Beta users have raved about Tango Card for Salesforce. "We have always given thank you gift cards the old-fashioned way," said Tammy Clower, Vice President, Marketing and Communications, at Altair Global Relocation and an early user of the app. "When we saw how ridiculously easy it was to send them through Tango Card for Salesforce, we couldn't wait to start using it."

The integration with Concur is a key component of Tango Card's application for enterprise customers. "Concur's T&E Cloud is all about making the lives of our 15 million users easier. Tango Card's app addresses a huge area of spend, that has always been cumbersome for clients to manage so it was an ideal partnership," says Barry Padgett, Executive Vice President of Concur Connect Platform Services. "The integration, built with Concur Connect APIs, was an absolute hit with clients at our Fusion 2012 user conference. It's the kind of innovation that is so simple and was connected so quickly to the Concur T&E Cloud yet will have a dramatic impact on hundreds of thousands of Concur users who grapple with reconciling these expenses on a regular basis."
