Givex Corp. to Automate David Jones Voucher Fulfillment for Qantas Frequent Flyer Program
As the global labor shortage continues, it is more important now than ever to automate processes to maximize efficiencies for customers and internal teams
BRISBANE (Tuesday, April 25, 2023) – Givex Corp. (TSX: GIVX) (OTCQX: GIVXF) announced today that it has automated David Jones voucher fulfillment for the Qantas Airlines Frequent Flyer program.
Like many airlines, Qantas allows its rewards program customers to redeem points for vouchers from various retailers, including the iconic Australian department store David Jones. Historically, voucher fulfillment has been a manual process that can take up to 48 hours, but now, with Givex automation and Marketplacer for David Jones reward fulfillment, the process takes only minutes – a huge improvement to both the customer experience and labor costs.
“Givex is the voucher processor for many merchants participating in the Qantas Frequents Flyer Program, and our ability to automate the fulfillment process for David Jones is a huge step forward for us. We can replicate this process with any participating retailer, making redeeming points incredibly easy for the end user,” said Larry Samuels, Managing Director of Givex Australia and New Zealand. “Additionally, our automation will free up time for employees in each business to focus on more important tasks – with the ultimate goal of selling more vouchers.”
“Launching automated eGift Card delivery via Qantas and Marketplacer has been a seamless process and we’re continually impressed with the level of service we receive from Givex,” said Kerry Sutcliffe, Gift Card Sales Manager at David Jones. “We look forward to rolling out automated eGift Card delivery across other key partnerships in the Gift Card space and know that we can rely on Givex to support this expansion plan”.
Since 1999, Givex has focused on providing customer engagement solutions to its merchants, with a footprint of more than 122,000 locations across its 12 global offices. In addition to voucher fulfillment, Givex offers point-of-sale system GivexPOS, loyalty programs, GivexPay and more. For more information, please visit www.givex.com.
