Thanx helps merchants create better relationships with their top customers with our next-generation happiness tools.Our daily mission is to say "Thanx" to our customers and help them say "Thanx" to theirs.
At its core, Thanx is a revolutionary approach to customer loyalty. Our mobile-focused consumer experience eliminates painful printouts, loyalty cards, and check-ins for consumers - instead, consumers just pay as usual with any credit or debit card. And Thanx works seamlessly and effortlessly with Apple Pay automatically.
Thanx requires no point-of-sale integration. Merchants can launch customized retention marketing programs in just minutes instead of months and at a fraction of the cost of existing solutions today. Over $15B in loyalty rewards were given out last year - and yet over 80% of brick-and-mortar businesses do not have these tools in place. Thanx brings a measurable and data-driven approach to a massive market that is waiting to be revolutionized.
