(TSX VENTURE: AKR) (OTC PINK: AKRFF) (“Ackroo” or the “Company”), a gift card, loyalty and rewards technology and services provider, today announced they have deployed another multi-location restaurant franchise putting the total amount of hospitality merchant locations Ackroo supports at over 800. The Company has also completed gift card and loyalty integration to Posera’s Maitre’D Point-of-Sale (POS) and is working in partnership with First Data Canada to complete integration to Clover, an open market mobile payment and point of sale tablet solution. Both of these integrations cater very heavily to the hospitality sector and assist in the Company’s strategic goal of further penetrating and scaling within this large business segment.

“Our continued growth and expanded product partnerships further validate our strategy into hospitality,” said Steve Levely, chief executive officer at Ackroo. “We are focused on adding not just feature enhancements to help differentiate us from our competitors, but also important point of sale integrations in order to further expand our addressable market as we begin to scale our business. Adding integrations like Maitre’D and Clover to the Ackroo platform are key advancements to position us well in Canada and the US. Our new Maitre’D integration is a great compliment to the work completed in 2017 with Posera’s SecureTablePay (STP) pay-at-the-table solution. Merchants can now utilize a complete gift card and loyalty processing solution that allows funding at the POS and redemption right at customer tables, ideal for any quick service or table service restaurant. The addition of Clovers next generation devices will allow Ackroo to be able to download as an application on the POS which will greatly reduce our time to deploy while shortening our sales cycle in the process. Combined with many other previous integrations and hospitality related features Ackroo already has in place the Company is poised for great growth in this area for many years to come.”
