e-Certificates is as practical for any restaurant as it is for non-commercial foodservice outlets. e-Certificates is an Internet ready, enterprise wide gift card solution that restaurants and non-commercial operations can host themselves, thereby eliminating those never-ending banking and transaction fees of traditional gift card solutions.
Gift card is the surrogate name for this GEM module. e-Certificates can be a generic gift card sold at the point-of-sale, a stored value card to replace a paper gift certificate or a separate debit account assigned to an existing employee’s GEMpay account.
From inexpensive bar-coded paper stock, to traditional plastic magnetic cards, to futuristic proximity key fobs or even smart cards, e-Certificates can accommodate all levels of affordability and sophistication. If you want convenience for your customer without sacrificing your profit margins, then Common CENTS makes perfect sense.
