GoTab launches RFID mobile ordering and payment solution

Leading Foodservice Commerce Platform Launches Smart Tech to Streamline Customer Experience in restaurants, food halls, hotels, festivals and other event venues

FSTEC debut September 19-21

ARLINGTON, Va., September 19, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — GoTab, a leading restaurant commerce platform, today announced the launch of its Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology designed to simplify mobile ordering and payment for customers in restaurants, food halls, hotels, festivals and other event venues. Using smart tag technology, RFID enables consumers to reload items from participating locations onto a single key card or wristband, creating a seamless ordering and payment experience for customers and driving increased transactions for providers.

“As the world continues to go digital, consumers want the same fast commerce experience they have with food delivery or shopping online, on the spot,” said GoTab co-founder and CEO, Tim McLaughlin. “With RFID, we are accelerating commerce, giving operators the tools to increase transactions and generate revenue while generating a fast and holistic consumer experience.”

Designed for convenience, GoTab’s RFID solution enables operators of single and multi-unit restaurants, food halls, festivals and other entertainment venues to deliver a fast and easy commerce experience. Prior to the event or upon entering the venue, guests receive a unique branded key card or wristband for each person, to which they can allocate funds from a credit or debit card. From there, customers can charge for food or retail items from multiple merchants on a single tab by simply tapping the card or wristband at each shopping station. Payment is then received via pre-allocated funds, or applied to a hotel or restaurant stay to be paid out upon completion based on location and usage. Additionally, the technology enables automatic reimbursement for customers if they spend less than what was loaded onto their card or wristband.

The launch of RFID follows GoTab’s new offering that enables multi-operator venues such as food halls, festivals, stadiums and more to automate vendor payments while enabling a seamless ordering and streamlined checkout process for customers via a single QR code. RFID, coupled with this multi-operator functionality, accelerates GoTab’s mission to help hospitality businesses optimize operations and drive sales through advanced mobile ordering and payment solutions.
