Spotlight: Foodtastic’s Second Cup Adds Efficiency and Speed With Givex’s POS and Customer WebSuite
Canadian coffee chain Second Cup, which started in 1975 in a shopping mall in Toronto and now has more than 200 locations, was already using Givex for gift cards, loyalty programs and POS when Foodtastic acquired the concept in early 2021 — Second Cup served to spotlight everything that the Givex platform has to offer.
“When I joined Second Cup, I had only known Givex as a gift card solutions provider,” says Tom Hogan, VP, Foodtastic/Second Cup Canada. “As I started to integrate myself into the platform, I realized that a great point of sale system was just the tip of the iceberg.”
Hogan found the Givex team exceptionally supportive, asking important questions about Second Cup’s goals and mission. “From seamlessly adding historical data from our previous provider, to offering full inventory management solutions, to integrating third-party providers, Givex has proven to be a great partner for Second Cup as we continue to grow our business.”
Givex is a global IT platform focused on providing merchants with useful customer insights. Our platform supports gift card processing, custom loyalty programs, stored value/loaded tickets, omnichannel point of sale and fully integrated payment processing, KDS, inventory, labor, kiosk, handheld tablets and online ordering apps.
The platform has fully integrated management and consumer apps. The portal provides support tools, hundreds of custom reports and analytics that enables merchants to make informed decisions about how to communicate with and cater to their customer needs. The platform is flexible and can be integrated to many third parties.
