Steamworks Tests Mobile Payments Solution
Four Vancouver locations of Steamworks Group of Companies have signed on for a trial of Glance Technologies Inc.’s mobile payment solution.
Glance Pay users can use the mobile payment app’s convenience, security and rewards at Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar Convention Centre and Gastown locations, with the additional Rogue location on West Broadway and their sister location, Steamworks Brewpub.
“We had previously tried out a mobile payments platform, and we’ve been researching several of them as well, but Glance Pay stood out as the solution for us,” says Carl McCreath, president of restaurant operations for Steamworks. “The chance to give our customers a leading-edge payment solution, while also enhancing our operational efficiency — that was a clear ‘win’ for keeping ahead of the competition.”
For more than 20 years, Steamworks has been standing out from the pack thanks to both its innovative brewing and its elegant, enthralling dining experiences. Inspired by the historic steam heating system they discovered in their Gastown brewpub location, Steamworks built its name and reputation from unlocking the flavor of with steam-powered brewing, creating its distinct, flavorful and award-winning taste in the process.
