Zeta Gift Card: a new reason to smile this festive season


NewZNew (Chandigarh) : The festive season is almost here and it’s time for corporates to start planning gifts for employees, clients and vendors. However, ensuring a smooth execution of such an intense logistical exercise can be a hassle for those involved in planning it. Especially for HR managers, procuring and distributing such gifts can get a little stressful. This is where Zeta comes in to make festive gifting easy, with the Zeta Gift Card.

The Zeta Gift Card is a part of Zeta’s portfolio of digital solutions in the Employee Tax Benefits and Rewards space. It is a virtual card that can be instantly distributed, across locations, in just one click. It completely does away with logistical hassles like distribution, storage and delivery.

Zeta Gift Cards can also be customised to comply with an organization’s requirements. Everything from the value of the gift vouchers, their validity and acceptance parameters can be specified. The card can even include messages to add a personal touch. Companies can also design the card in colours of their choosing and feature their logos on them. This level of hyper-customisation of gift cards has been unknown till now.

To an employee, Zeta Gift Cards bring a separate set of advantages. With existing card-based and voucher-based solutions, employees are forced to spend them at one or a limited number of outlets. Whereas, unless specified, the gift cards issued by Zeta can be used at any outlet an employee desires to make purchases from. Also, there is the added advantage of having the gift money always on them, on their smartphones or the MasterCard-powered Zeta Super Card. Finally, these gift cards can act as a smart tax-saving option, as an amount of up to Rs 5000 is completely tax free as gifts from companies.

An interesting aspect of Zeta is that it will not allow the gift cards to expire. Zeta prioritises payments via its gift card over the cash card. While shopping online or buying movie tickets, swiping the Zeta Super Card automatically deducts the balance in one’s gift card. This feature also ensures that the maximum benefit from the value of the gift card is derived as any deficit in the gift card balance can be adjusted against the balance in one’s Zeta Cash card. Finally, being a cloud-based solution, the chances of losing Zeta Gift Cards are next to impossible.

The Zeta Gift Card is making festive gifting more fun for employees and HR managers alike.
