Copper announced the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office awarded the company and its founder two patents for technologies designed to help restaurateurs simplify their access to data through a mix of software and hardware designed to offer pay-at-the-table solutions.
The San Francisco-based tech company received the patents just four months after filing the applications; the average time for technology patent approval is 16-26 months.
64% of restaurants surveyed say enabling new payment options are drivers impacting POS upgrades decisions in 2022, according to HT's 2022 POS Software Trends report
Copper is a cloud-based platform that seamlessly integrates with every point-of-sale (POS) system and helps restaurants "free their data" so they can more easily view outcomes and trends of their own sales. Its various features, including Copper Cord™, Copper Checkout™, Copper Cashier™, Copper Conduit™, offer an affordable solution to some of restaurants' most costly problems.
Throughout COVID, the Copper system helped to close the loop for restaurants as leaner staffs and fewer tables became a long-term reality. The pay-at-the-table solution, enabled by the easy-to-integrate Copper Cord, allows restaurants to quickly turn tables and helps guests close checks on time.
Copper has been doubling its channel partner/reseller relationships month over month since the beginning of 2021, resulting in triple-digit growth in installations, quarter over quarter. Copper expects to continue exponential growth through 2022.
