March 21, 2019

MONTREAL--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mar 21, 2019--DataCandy, a North American leader in gift card and customer loyalty solutions for retailers, restaurants and petroleum companies, has been chosen by Parkland Fuel Corporation (“Parkland”) to implement a gift card program at Parkland’s 180 Canadian Chevron-branded fuel stations. Parkland is a retail branded distributor for Chevron in Canada and acquired Chevron Canada R & M ULC on October 1, 2017.

“We have already experienced first-hand the numerous benefits of collaborating with DataCandy through its work enabling gift card capabilities at our Ultramar-branded locations,” said Ian White, Senior Vice President, Strategic Marketing & Innovation at Parkland Fuel Corporation. “DataCandy’s industry expertise and innovative software features make implementing its solution at our Chevron-branded locations the logical next step.”

DataCandy’s gift card solution is designed to easily integrate with the hardware that North American businesses use most, including the existing Bulloch point-of-sale systems in use at Chevron-branded stations.

“We are pleased to be expanding our relationship with Parkland Fuel Corporation and look forward to helping Parkland offer gift cards at all its Canadian Chevron-branded locations,” said Lorne Schwartz, President and CEO of DataCandy. “Successful initiatives such as these are the reason why DataCandy is quickly becoming the petroleum industry’s gift card solution provider of choice.”
