Profile

Gift Management Asia Pte. Ltd. (Giift) drives the largest and more progressive global loyalty marketplace – a gateway to a new reality in loyalty.
As industry influencers in transforming the perceived value of a loyalty currency, we’ve shaped market-first possibilities including a worldwide network, loyalty market exchange, among others. It’s about reinventing the loyalty journey with convergence, integration and transparency.

The Giift marketplace is a network where loyalty programs and customers from anywhere in the world primarily converge, interact and engage. It goes beyond coalition within this sector. Harnessing the intelligence of technology, we have created a new industry segment, unifying the loyalty market, standardizing it and thus redefining it.

Our network, Giift Exchange Marketplace, stimulates interaction between programs and members, where any points, miles and gift cards can be exchanged for other programs, globally. Our lead solution in integrating mobile payment technology with a single loyalty point technology takes forward our pervasiveness. This hybrid and robust offering is shaped with our end-to-end loyalty technology bringing global scalability, simplicity and seamlessness. Today, almost every industry sector including Hospitality, F&B, Airlines, Insurance, Retail, Banking, Payments and more, features on Giift Exchange.

We serve the multi-faceted loyalty industry across three main functions including Loyalty Issuance, Loyalty Exchange and Loyalty Payment. With a beginning in 2014, Giift today reaches its 50k+ programs across 55+ countries and over 40m users. With our headquarters in Singapore, we have opened additional offices in New York, London, Singapore, Wuhan, Nairobi, Dubai, Jakarta, New Delhi, and Colombo.

Staying true to our pioneering ideology, Giift is continuously setting new benchmarks for the industry.
