About Giftpro

Our mission is to help hospitality businesses unlock the power of their brands and drive more direct revenue.

Giftpro was born from a deep love of hospitality and a firm belief that any brand, big or small, should be able to give their customers a digital experience they’ll love.

As a team, most of us have worked together for years and we’re proud to have helped some of the world’s most renowned hospitality and eCommerce companies achieve better results online.

Throughout that period, we often encountered problems with the systems our clients used – we knew they deserved better and we knew we could do better.

The result? Giftpro, and since our launch in 2014 we’ve had the privilege of working with hundreds of clients who share our same passion for progress and innovation.

We believe that our uniqueness lies in our results-orientated mindset, and our vision is for a suite of products that won’t just help our clients grow, they’ll also grow with them.
