Digital Dining to Offer Tabbedout
AUSTIN, TX – April 23, 2012 – Digital Dining, a leading developer of hospitality point-of-sale (POS) software, will add Tabbedout, the free mobile payment app that allows consumers to open, view and pay tabs with their phones, to their product portfolio by the end of Q2. This offering means a larger segment of the hospitality industry across the country can now offer a mobile payment option – and the more than 100M U.S. consumers with smartphones in their pockets have an instant and secure way to pay bar and restaurant tabs.
Tabbedout will be integrated with Digital Dining POS, making it as easy as a simple software update for bars and restaurants to deploy Tabbedout 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.
“Mobile payments are becoming more popular and demanded by the consumer, and we need to provide a way for our merchants to quickly meet that demand in a secure manner,” said Andre Nataf, senior business development manager for Menusoft Systems Corporation, creators of Digital Dining POS. “We are always looking for the best solutions and technologies to add to our POS platform, and Tabbedout provides a unique solution specifically built for the hospitality industry.”
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.
“Integrating with a POS leader like Digital Dining allows us to offer our mobile payment solution to a wider network of bars and restaurants nationwide,” said Kevin McKeand, vice president of sales for Tabbedout. “Our goal is to make mobile payment an everyday simple and secure process for the consumer that generates additional revenue for Tabbedout venues.”
