Bravo solves a big problem for service workers—these workers can be missing tips from their customers without carrying cash, ranging from twenty to sixty-five percent of the time, but for many of them, gratuities represent over 50 percent of their income.
Phoenix, Ariz. (PRWEB) May 04, 2016
Building on its momentum in the Phoenix market and expanding nationwide, Bravo Tip or Pay will introduce the first and only patent-filed GPS Payment gateway at Apps World North America 2016 in the Startup City Booth #S48 in Santa Clara, Calif., on May 11-12, 2016. Maria Luna, the chief executive officer and co-founder will speak at a keynote panel about the future of mobile payment and evolution of customer experience at Fintech and Mobile Banking Conference there.
Bravo allows anyone, at any time, to pay or tip right from their smartphone in seconds. The mobile app has eliminated the need for swiping cards, paying for expensive terminals, or exchanging personal information; the money goes straight into one’s bank account and never sits in a text or email, thus eliminating the risk of being hacked. The data is always encrypted and tokenized for security. In addition, the app has a security PIN, and sensitive data is not stored at Bravo Tip or Pay servers or smart device.
“Digital tipping is an untapped mobile payment market,” said Maria Luna, CEO and co-founder of Bravo Tip or Pay. “Bravo is ready to tap into the significant market of gratuities. Bravo solves a big problem for service workers—these workers can be missing tips from their customers without carrying cash, ranging from twenty to sixty-five percent of the time, but for many of them, gratuities represent over 50 percent of their income, which could mean school supplies, clothes, food on the table or gas in the car.”
In its first few months of piloting the app in Phoenix, users have reported an increase in gratuities captured, morale and repeat business. Local Phoenix users include Sip Coffee and Beer House, Phoenix Children’s Hospital, the Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Foundation, One Vision One World, Executive Council Charities, Shadows Foundation, service professionals, musicians, drivers, valet service attendants and college students. The brand is seeing organic growth in cities like Miami, San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, El Paso, Austin and Las Vegas.
