Fintech startups are eager to disrupt every aspect of the financial industry, and payments are no exception.
Vancouver’s Ready offers seamless self-pay, skip and order solutions to venues across North America and today they officially launched a Split-Check feature.
The new feature allows users to select and pay for their individual menu items, skipping what can sometimes be a lengthy payment process – asking for the bill, waiting for it to arrive, splitting items properly, and paying for items individually – without requiring diners to create an account or download an app.
“We’re thrilled to launch Ready’s Split-Check feature in venues across the Lower Mainland.” said Laurent May, Head of Ready. “When your meal is done, the last thing you want to do is wait another 30 minutes to pay and leave, especially when you’re in a big group and servers are busy getting the bills out and processing payments. It wastes valuable time that could instead be focused on delivering a better dining experience”.
As part of its dedication to providing guests with a seamless experience, Tap & Barrel has rolled out this functionality in all its three locations across Vancouver.
May continues, “Ready has helped its venues turn tables 23 minutes faster on average, reducing guest wait times and helping increase the restaurant’s bottom line. By putting the power of payment into the guest’s hands, we’re able to improve the experience for both sides.”
“Guest experience has always been our number one priority,” exclaimed Daniel Frankel of Tap & Barrel. “We are constantly looking for innovative ways to improve our guests’ experience while helping to alleviate unnecessary friction, allowing our staff to focus on what’s important. When Ready approached us, we saw this as the perfect opportunity to support both parties and address these goals.”
The split-check feature will soon be standard across all new venues offering Ready.
