Pros: It's inexpensive, and works well.

Cons: I don't like having to go into an app on my merchant machine to do anything with gift cards.

Overall: I love the product overall, but it was an ordeal to get the app onto my debit machine, as Moneris had no idea about Datacandy at all.

I also dislike you need to go into an entire new option to do anything with a gift card. It can hold up the checkout line, I would like it more if it was just an app running in the background, then if a gift card is swiped it runs the program instead of having to go into the app manually.

Recommendations to other buyers: Nothing I haven't already said.

A true Partner with integrity. DataCandy's team is top notch.

Pros: Ease of integration, scalability and ease of use.

Overall: From project prep to migration and launch DataCandy supported every aspect of my org's requirements. Exposure to training, knowledge of data imports, approach to bug fixes, access to developers, access to top management, support and access to industry expertise were all smooth and excellent experiences. The task of switching from our old provider to DataCandy seemed daunting but they made it easy. Truly a customer focused organization. We hope to work with DataCandy for many years to come.

Recommendations to other buyers: Plan plan plan. Let them help you plan. It makes the launch easier.

Pros: - Customer support
- Personalized gift card
- User-friendly

Cons: - Dashboard needs to be enhance
- Reports and dashboard are too simple (not enough statistics and configuration)

Overall: DataCandy is a good software for a store who needs gift card services.

The dashboard on the internet needs to be enhance with more fonctionnalities, reports and statistics, but works great for now.

Creating personalized gift card is an easy task and the customer support is very good!

Pros: Simplicity and hardly any configuration required.

Cons: Pricing and the time difference in all reports.

Overall: First of all, my best decision of 2015. I love the ease of use. The back office interface is simple and has all functionalities that are required. Support is exceptional (Angelica) and my account manager (Emily)has been phenomenal throughout. I do have some some feedback considering that I am the first company in the middle east to use the solution and very soon there will be a second one. The feedback has been shared with Emily by email.

Recommendations to other buyers: Consider the different time zones and currencies available.
