Partnership drives restaurant loyalty programs, email clubs, gift solutions and more to help diners choose a brand first and more frequently

BOSTON, July 20, 2017 -- Toast, the all-in-one restaurant technology platform and one of the fastest-growing SaaS companies in the U.S., today announced an integration with Paytronix, a leading provider of reward program solutions for restaurants and retailers. Toast users are now able to extend their restaurant management platform with Paytronix loyalty and gift card solutions, ensuring an exceptional guest experience at all touch points - in-store, mobile, social networks, and online.

Paytronix stored value solutions ensure an exceptional customer experience. With a ready-made solution, a brand’s biggest ambassadors acquire gift cards at third-party retailers or online either with a physical card or virtual card purchase to share the brand experience with their friends, family, colleagues and business associates. Reporting capabilities complete the turnkey offering, enabling restaurants to do central and decentralized money movement with discount tracking. This ensures the discount expense is attributed to the time the card is redeemed, rather than when it is purchased - freeing up expenses for other traffic-building programs.

"Toast’s mission of enabling restaurants to deliver the best customer experience by leveraging innovative technology is furthered through our integration with Paytronix,” said Aman Narang, president and co-founder of Toast. "Toast’s best-in-class partner ecosystem, the Toast API Partner Program, empowers Toast users with the ability to further streamline operations and grow revenue.”

With the Toast and Paytronix Integration, users will be able to increase loyalty with diners and:

  • Sell more gift cards by making it easy for guests to find them whenever and wherever they are needed
  • Empower operators with a robust loyalty program
  • Provide online options with physical card web sales and eGift features, which plug into users’ existing website(s)
  • Manage money movement, liability, discount tracking, and escheatment processes
  • Deliver an improved staff and guest experience with:
    • Card numbers for unique account identification
    • Card activation dates for appropriate expiration and escheatment processing
    • Current balances on active cards for consistent liability reporting

“Integrating Toast with the Paytronix platform lets restaurants take advantage of our platform and all the ways in which stored value programs can help them recruit new customers and increase sales,” said Michelle Tempesta, head of marketing, Paytronix Systems, Inc. “With stored value programs, merchants can provide the convenience of pre-paid, cashless purchases for high-traffic locations. Operators transform the customer experience with our technology thereby creating an environment that enables them to serve more guests in a short period of time.”  

Toast POS offers advanced functionality to manage the day-to-day operations of the restaurant, including quick menu modifications, real-time enterprise reporting and labor management on an easy-to-use interface. The platform also features revenue-driving tools including physical and digital gift cards, loyalty programs and online ordering.
