TouchBistro and Chase Announce Payment Tech Partnership
TouchBistro, the provider of iPad POS software implemented by more than 12,000 restaurants, said it is introducing TouchBistro Payments powered by WePay, a Chase company. The companies are teaming up to deliver two time-saving innovations busy restaurant owners need: instant payment processing; and a new, integrated mobile payment device that allows customers to easily pay at the table as they choose – tap, chip, and traditional magnetic strip. Restaurants will be able to onboard instantly, so they can start taking payments the moment they unbox TouchBistro. Additionally, the payment process is EMV compliant for digital, credit and debit transactions.
Through the WePay relationship, TouchBistro will gain a promotional platform to market its restaurant point-of-sale solution on Chase.com and through more than 5,000 Chase Bank branches. Chase’s four million small business clients include thousands of restaurants, breweries, and others in the food service industry.
This partnership also makes it easier for restaurants who bank with Chase to instantly integrate with TouchBistro and benefit from its POS functionality and features. Built specifically for the foodservice industry, TouchBistro helps restaurateurs run a better business by enabling them to make more money, deliver a great guest experience, and take the guesswork out of making business decisions.
In 2016 WePay introduced a mobile POS for omnichannel payments. This WePay solution is the foundation of TouchBistro Payments, which – along with the new payment terminal – will launch this spring.
