FTD Launches Personalized Digital Gifting Experiences for Customers

Leading global floral and gift industry brand enhances its digital service offerings with GiftNow

SAN FRANCISCO, June 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- FTD, LLC, a leader in the floral industry for more than a century, is enabling shoppers to digitally gift merchandise that matters most to their loved ones and friends if that merchandise cannot physically arrive by a desired day.

FTD is the modern florist collective, dedicated to helping people find and give the most beautiful flowers. A leader in the floral industry for more than a century, FTD works with 9,000 local florists to design, arrange and deliver fresh, exquisite floral arrangements across the US.

Offering technology, marketing, and digital services to members of its floral network to create memorable experiences, FTD will leverage technology from digital gifting company, GiftNow, to complement their beautiful arrangements and merchandise with a personalized, emotional, and memorable digital gifting experience for both the gifter and recipient.

"At FTD, we're dedicated to helping you find and give the most beautiful flowers for life's important gifting moments," said Taryn Rayment, CMO of FTD, LLC. "By partnering with GiftNow, we're able to take gifting a step further by allowing shoppers to digitally gift merchandise in a matter of seconds at any time, with the option of a personalized note."

FTD saw last-minute shoppers deliver these digital gifts on and following Mother's Day. Whether it is graduations, holidays or just-because days, FTD can offer a more connective and personal experience to its customers to share the most special moments and celebrations.

GiftNow, a Synchrony (NYSE: SYF) solution, is a holistic Gift Experience Management solution that takes the friction out of gifting. With GiftNow's platform, gifters can send personalized digital gifts in seconds and recipients can exchange or modify their items before they ship, benefiting gift givers, recipients, corporate gifting programs and retailers.

"We've entered a new era of gifting where the gifting experience is not just about the product, but about offering ways for people to connect in more meaningful ways," said Jennifer Muller, CMO of GiftNow at Synchrony. "FTD is leading the charge in innovating around the gifting experience, and we're excited to partner with them to help connect generous thought with generous action."
