CHICAGO, June 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- SVM, LP, the global leader in gift card solutions for businesses, is offering eGift Cards for the B2B market. For more than 14 years, SVM has been providing innovative gift card solutions for businesses and SVM is pleased to expand its services to include eGift Cards.
With the introduction of digital Gift Cards in the consumer market, the popularity of eGift Cards is exploding. SVM has aggressively taken this new technology to a higher level to accommodate the enhanced requirements of its B2B customers. SVM has developed unique order delivery, order servicing, program management and reporting capabilities specifically for these B2B customers. SVM intends to provide eGift solutions with the same industry-leading levels of reliability, quality and service as it provides for plastic gift cards.
SVM offers retailers a simple, quick process for working with SVM on eGift. As a result, SVM is rapidly adding new retailers to its portfolio and anticipates having more than 80 brands by year end 2011.
SVM is providing its customers with both individual and bulk eGift delivery options via convenient and efficient processes. eGift Cards can be delivered almost immediately and can contain personalized messages to the recipients, including employees, customers, reward recipients and prospects. As a promotional or reward tool, eGift Cards offer SVM customers unique delivery opportunities, and the consumer is incented to act quickly in order to take advantage of an instant reward for a desired action.
"While plastic gift cards are not going away any time soon, the world is changing; speed of response and instant gratification are more important than ever. We see it in our mobile phones and computers and now in the incentive and rewards industry where it is desirable to reward individuals immediately. If you need to deliver rewards quickly and conveniently, eGift Cards are a great solution," stated Jim Leroux, President of SVM.
Focusing on the needs of our B2B customers has always been SVM's approach. SVM's customers can continue to obtain plastic gift cards from SVM with the same great service they have come to expect; and customers can now conveniently obtain eGift Cards from SVM as well.
SVM is offering its customers two options for eGift delivery. In the first option, SVM manages the email or mobile delivery, the customer service and the reporting. In the second option, SVM customers purchase eGift Cards from SVM in bulk and then distribute these eGift Cards to the recipients as needed. This allows the customers to manage the eGift Card delivery and servicing for themselves, if desired.
"SVM has taken our eGift servicing and management services beyond those of any other eGift Card provider. Our capabilities allow our customers unparalleled visibility and control over their eGift transactions," said Andrew Dodge, Vice President of Business Development at SVM. "In the B2B space, eGift delivery is only the beginning - our customers need robust servicing, management and reporting capabilities as well."
