DataCandy to Fuel Gift Card Strategy for Major Gas Station Chain

MONTREAL–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Crevier–Leading Canadian fuel distributor Groupe Crevier has designated
DataCandy as the driver of its new gift card program at supply points
across the province. The Montreal-based software provider’s turnkey
solution has enabled Groupe Crevier to design and sell custom prepaid
cards from its existing payment systems at over 200 of the brand’s
service stations — all in less than three months. The strategically
timed launch of the program is expected to help the Quebec brand siphon
a wealth of previously untapped holiday gift card sales.

“When DataCandy was recommended to us as a gift card partner, we knew
that the potential benefits for our customers would be substantial,”
says Jean-Claude Clément, Vice President of Fuels at Groupe Crevier.
“What we didn’t know is just how easy the whole process would be.
Adopting DataCandy’s straightforward platform and rechargeable cards was
a big leap toward Groupe Crevier’s continued goal to enrich the customer
experience at each of our service stations.”

The simplicity of DataCandy’s customer loyalty and gift card platform
and its compatibility with most leading payment systems, including
Global Payments’ specialized Rigger payment terminal, have enabled gas
station operators to connect even their most remote locations to their
gift card network without a hitch.

“Being selected to implement such an iconic brand’s gift card program on
a provincial scale is quite an honour for DataCandy,” says Lorne
Schwartz, President and CEO of DataCandy. “Helping businesses like
Groupe Crevier maintain their competitive edge and provide a seamless
customer experience is at the heart of our mission as a company.”

Crevier gift cards have been available for purchase at the brand’s
service stations since November 21, 2018.
