How it works

iKentoo has a business finder program to reward clients and partners who refer new prospective clients to us with a monetary compensation. For the reward to be applicable any referred prospect can never have been in contact with iKentoo and must be registered using the dedicated page: www.ikentoo.com/en/business-finder

To be eligible for the business finder reward, the referred client must sign, and pay for, an annual iKentoo subscription. If the referred client choses to sign a monthly contract, any request for reward will be dealt with on a case by case basis, with no obligation whatsoever on the part of iKentoo. For compliance reasons, we can only send rewards to individuals or companies with a valid VAT number (private individuals are therefore not eligible for a business finder reward). 

Any business finder based in the Euro zone will be rewarded in Euros, and any business finder established in Switzerland will be paid in Swiss francs. For all other countries please contact sales@ikentoo.com directly. 

The business finder reward is not applicable to official iKentoo resellers or distributors (and their clients), or to any person or entity with which iKentoo has an existing and defined commercial relationship.

iKentoo reserves the right to modify the conditions, requirements or amount of the business finder reward at any moment, without any advance notice. iKentoo also reserves the right to refuse a reward for any referred client who does not comply with the terms and conditions of the business finder program, for example if they were already in contact with iKentoo at the moment of the referral, at any moment and without advance notice to the business finder. iKentoo reserves the right to cancel the business finder program at any time and without advance notice.

  • Receive EUR or CHF 200 for each referred client who signs and pays for an annual iKentoo subscription

  • For multi-site restaurants and restaurant groups (franchised or not), the reward is calculated based on the number of annual subscriptions signed (each business location requires its own subscription), with a maximum reward for a referred multi-site group of EUR or CHF 1000
