Jessops retail focus remains sharp with improved gift card provision
The UK's premier photographic retailer, Jessops, has joined forces with leading prepaid gift card provider, Ceridian SVS UK Ltd (SVS), to launch their revived gift card programme.
Gift cards are not a new thing for the Leicester-based retailer, which has been running its own in-store gift card programme for some time. Jessops is continually looking for new ways to bring new services to its customers and welcomed the opportunity to work with industry pioneer, SVS, to expand its gift card provisions.
The added functionality and range of new card designs, including an eye-catching die-cut camera card, ensure customers are put first. The enhanced Jessops gift card programme also allows the store to offer their cards through third party resellers. This means Jessops gift cards will now be available at gift card malls in a wide selection of shops and supermarkets, enabling Jessops to maximise gift card sales.
Simon Winter, Head of Business to Business at Jessops said: “We wanted to find an industry-leading player that could give us a multi-channel product that provided us with the opportunity to really drive revenue both through our own stores and, more excitingly, through other retail outlets such as retail gift card malls.”
Jessops described the conversion from in-store gift cards to the SVS-managed programme as smooth and trouble-free. “I couldn't be happier with the conversion process. It was a fantastic team effort by our IT, Marketing and Finance teams at Jessops and the excellent team at SVS. Without their guidance and expertise we would not be in this great position,” says Simon Winter.
