TabbedOut and Lucky Strike collaborate on mobile payment bowling service
October 23, 2012 - 4:31pm
Austin, Texas-based mobile payment processing company Tabbedout recently struck an agreement with bowling operator Lucky Strike to begin allowing mobile payment options at eight of the latter company's 20 locations around the U.S., Mobile Payments Today reports. Using the free mobile payment processing app, bowlers will be able to open and pay their tabs right from their phones while at the lanes, instead of having to walk to the bar or cash register.
"Tabbedout is unique in that it is deeply integrated with our POS system, which made it simple to install and enables customers to securely pay directly from their own device," Steven Foster, CEO and cofounder of Lucky Strike, told the news source. "We want to create a guest experience that offers the latest amenities and keeps guests coming back."
The free mobile application is integrated with Lucky Strike's existing MICROS point of sale terminals. With Tabbedout's existing partnership with MICROS, the transition was seamless for both sides. The service is currently available at the bowling operator's locations in Boston, Denver, Philadelphia, San Francisco, two Chicago-area alleys and its flagship location in Hollywood, the source reports.
Tabbedout had also begin offering its services at restaurant chain T.G.I. Fridays, according to Business 2 Community. Diners were able to open a tab and pay their entire bill using their smartphones. With credit cards linked to an individual's account as set up on their phone, the process of paying via phone creates a great deal of convenience for guests at such services as the restaurant and bowling industries. Skipping the step of having to wait for servers or walk uncomfortably to a location just to pay provides consumers with a helpful new service.
Mobile methods of payment processing have already pervaded nearly every expenditure in our daily lives, from our online shopping binges to our first cup of coffee in the morning. Now, mobile payments are entering an unexpected realm - video games.
