NGC Launches Retail Partner Gift Card Agency
National Gift Card Corp (NGC) announces the launch of its Retail Partner Gift Card Agency this week. Merchant brands that need to sell more gift cards but don’t have the bandwidth, resources or time to find new business, manage leads, vet against fraud, fulfill the cards, invoice customers, collect payments and manage the overall growth of their gift card program now have a brand new one-stop resource: National Gift Card’s Retail Partner Gift Card Agency.
Working with its 2,000 global corporate clients in the loyalty, rewards and incentive industry, NGC, a leading B2B gift card solution partner and fulfillment house with more than 450 gift card partners for use in the U.S., Canada and Europe, just strengthened its position as a full-service gift card agency to support retailers looking for assistance with their gift card programs.
“As our list of B2B clients continues to grow, we heard an increasing need from our retail partner brands for services that go beyond fulfilling their gift cards or eCodes,” said NGC President Eric Thiegs. “We’ve been helping retailers quietly behind the scenes for over a decade with their gift card programs and realized it was time to formally enhance this area of our capabilities with additional staff, platforms and services ready to support merchants of any size with their gift card sales and fulfillment.”
He went on to highlight the benefits of the new agency services:
• Lead Management
• Lead Generation
• Client Vetting
• Fraud Protection
• Bulk Fulfillment
• Direct to Recipient Fulfillment
• Client Order and Payment Processing
• Warehousing and Inventory Management of Physical and Digital Cards
• Card Printing
• Customized Reporting
• Tailored Sales Campaigns
• Dedicated Marketing Support
• Customer Service Support
Ashley Harris, NGC Director of Strategic Partnerships, the person responsible for its partner brand relationships and identifying key growth initiatives for its retail partner network, sees the agency’s support services as a “safer and more convenient way to reach more buyers for our retail partners.” She continued by sharing, “NGC is able to put its extensive B2B client network, international fulfillment infrastructure, state-of-the-art 52,000 square foot fulfillment facility, sales team, secure gift card fulfillment and API systems to work for our partner brands.”
The expanded services include everything from vetting customers for fraud to card activation, fulfillment, packaging and shipment. More information about NGC and its agency services is available via a newly dedicated website at http://www.thegiftcardexperts.com/ or by calling +1.888.472.8747.
