Lloyds Banking Group office cafes
40% incremental profit, 5.4% average uplift in sales.
In London, during peak hours many coffee-shops experience long queues. To avoid the queueing, consumers search for alternatives . For Gather & Gather – the firm that runs the in-office catering service at all of the Lloyds Banking Group buildings – it means revenue losses.
We thought we could change the situation with our mobile retail technology and allowed customers to order coffee ahead – for example, while commuting or at working desks. People can now pay on WioPay app and check order status in real time. Meanwhile, baristas would receive new orders via mobile WPOS app on their tablets, prepare coffee and deliver it to the pick-up point.
The new payments technology has already saved Lloyds colleagues thousands of man hours and resulted in revenue increase to Gather and Gather. It is now live across all the UK and Ireland. In addition, the bank’s acquiring team has now offered the same technology to their own retailers (coffee-shops, pubs, restaurants, etc.).
Are you building a cross-border money transfer solution from scratch? Not a problem for us!
A London-based startup TalkRemit initiated a project to create a “social wallet” app, allowing people in the UK to send money to their relatives or friends. The app was intended to support chat and video calls, too.
Our knowledge about money remittance and software platform helped TalkRemit avoid the hassle setting up such a service from scratch. In a very short period of time, they had a money remittance platform for their customers, complete with:
- essential transfer management features
- credit card integrations
- KYC (Know your customer) support
- AML (Anti Money Laundering) support
- cash-in functionality
- TalkRemit web page
Beating traffic in West Africa
In Ivory Coast, drivers on toll roads currently can only pay the road fee by cash, with a mandatory stopping at the entry/exit tolls. Needless to say, during rush hours queues are bound to happen, costing time and money.
This is about to change, because we are launching a mobile payment platform with a local-brand SmartPay on it. Using integrated Order and Pay technology on SmartPay app, drivers will be able to pay tolls in advance. The system will also support mobile payments by scanning QR code at the toll. Road owners will receive both types of transfers via WPOS app on tablets (WPOS is a mobile POS system developed by WoraPay).
Payments from telecom accounts are very popular in Ivory Coast. Therefore, we made SmartPay fully compatible both with credit card payment providers and with all local telecom providers.
Smart solutions for tech-savvy clients
Looking to expand their operations in the Baltic states, Poland and Belarus, car parking service company UniPark knew they had to make sure that their customer experience was as smooth as possible.
Initially, UniPark customers could only pay using their telecom provider’s account or sign a contract for advance. The system, although modern, was not always convenient to use, especially to those who expected to use a credit or debit card as a payment method.
Credit and debit card support in UniPark mobile app was a logical next step. Using WoraPay’s white-label software, company can now offer more payment options for their clients. The platform also supports seamless payments, whereby drivers can pay without even touching their mobile phones as they leave parking slots. We certainly hope these changes will help UniPark expand their business even faster and further than before.
