Franklin, TN (PRWEB) July 18, 2005
Valutec Card Solutions, Inc. today announced global functionality with the Microsoft Retail Management System (RMS). Now retailers operating RMS can select Valutec as their gift card provider with the assurance that the cards will work across their entire chain. Assisting in the integration was New West Technologies, a Microsoft Gold Certified Business Solutions Partner and Microsoft Retail Solutions Reseller.
Valutec provides end-to-end stored value card services including card design and production, merchandising displays, transaction processing, reporting and toll-free support to each merchant location. Coupled with the functionality of RMS, Valutec cards may be purchased, redeemed and recharged in real time across multiple store locations within the same chain.
The trend towards gift cards has accelerated dramatically over the past few years. In 2004, consumers spent $55 billion dollars on plastic gift cards, as opposed to $5 billion on paper gift certificates. The Microsoft RMS integration with Valutec opens the door for many more merchants to generate similar sales gains with their own high-quality gift card programs.
Valutec integration for RMS is free to new Valutec customers. For information visit: http://www.valutecinfo.com/
