New integration with Toast makes multi-location transaction processing available to Toast restaurants.
Nashville, TN (April 12, 2022) – eCard Systems today announced an expanded partnership with Toast, the all-in-one platform for restaurants. eCard Systems originally partnered with Toast in 2019 for online gift card and merchandise ordering and manufacturing services. The new integration adds access to eCard’s digital, online and physical gift card transaction processing and program management. This is ideal for Toast restaurants with 2 to 25 locations and especially those with complex gift card needs.
“We’re excited this integration allows us to expand our role with Toast customers across the board,’ said eCard CEO Benjamin Berg. “We already serve more than 13,000 Toast customers and look forward to supporting merchants who have more complex needs with gift card program management, transaction processing and financial reporting. Our passion is to make gift cards easy no matter what range of needs a Toast restaurant may have.”
Toast’s use of both manufacturing and processing services from eCard offers restaurants a more robust and seamless omnichannel gift card experience. Same-day onboarding, transaction reporting, money movement pooling reconciliation, advantageous pricing, personalized support and card and merchandise production are all under one roof with online access, according to Berg.
“With Toast’s continued growth, it’s imperative we work with partners who deliver services quickly, reliably and keep innovating to improve the customer experience,” said Keith Corbin, Director of Business Development at Toast. “Based on its track record since 2019, eCard has proven itself a solid partner who our customers depend on and appreciate. Expanding to include gift card processing was a natural evolution of our relationship.”
Toast’s restaurant management platform combines point of sale, front of house, back of house, and guest-facing technology that empowers restaurateurs to increase revenue, improve restaurant operations and deliver amazing guest experiences. Together, eCard systems and Toast provide restaurants with robust customer insights, customer loyalty and feedback, highly-targeted multi-channel marketing campaigns and results measured in real revenue.
