Tabbedout Continues Expansion; Makes Mobile Payment a Reality in Dallas- Fort Worth Metroplex
DALLAS, TX. – April 18, 2012 – Tabbedout, the free mobile payment app that allows consumers to open, view and pay tabs with their phones, has launched service in nearly 50 locations throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, including popular locations such as Katy Trail Ice House, Humperdinks and Trinity Hall, with more bar and restaurant locations coming soon. DFW is the latest market in which Tabbedout has expanded service.
Available on both iPhone and Android smartphones, Tabbedout was built by security experts who like to have a good time. The mobile payment app allows users to securely store credit or debit card information directly on their phone, encrypted and under passphrase protection, instead of on host servers or in “the cloud.” Consumers are safe from the threat of stolen payment information due to lost or forgotten credit cards since they now can open and pay their tab directly from their phone without handing over their credit or debit information to a server. Patrons can also view their itemized tab in real-time, removing any surprises at the end of the night. “Tabbedout has resonated with our guests by providing an easy and secure way to monitor and pay their tabs when they prefer,” said Joe Tillotson, co-owner of Katy Trail Ice House. “We realize that the demand for mobile payment is growing, and we wanted to make sure we had a trusted solution in place so our guests have the best experience possible when they come to our venue.”
Tabbedout integrates with most major point-of-sale (POS) systems, making it as easy as a simple software update for bars and restaurants to deploy Tabbedout, and without the need for any new hardware. With Tabbedout, bars and restaurants can spend more time serving food and drink to their patrons instead of closing out checks, which means more revenue to their bottom line.
“Right now, more than 100 million people in the U.S. have smartphones and as a result, the demand for mobile payment is booming, particularly in cities like Dallas where there is a large population of young, tech- savvy consumers,” said Kevin McKeand, vice president of sales for Tabbedout. “Our integrations with major POS providers make it easy for bars and restaurants to provide mobile payment options without any hassle. Our goal is to enable more bars and restaurants to focus on what they are good at: serving food and drink, and providing a great customer experience.”
More than 400 bars and restaurants offer Tabbedout nationwide. For more information, visit tabbedout.com/locations.
