The Challenge
To transform the restaurant payment experience

Restaurants in the UK needed to find new ways for their customers to pay without compromising the hospitality experience.

To overcome this challenge, mobile technology innovator Flypay tethers QR codes to table numbers as unique identifiers that retrieve customers' bills via mobile phone. For the Flypay app to facilitate payments, Flypay needed a partner to provide an integrated platform for reconciling and processing transactions, as well as consolidating centralized reports.
