We are a start up looking to make a big impact. We want to change the world forever & make tipping fairer for the worker, more transparent for the customer & less painful for the business.
Our platform was designed and built by hospitality workers but it is easily transferable and consistent with other tipped workers including taxi drivers, hairdressers, food delivery drivers, street performer’s and many more.
Currently tipped workers from all industries are struggling, they are on the frontline of the diminishing use of cash and are feeling their earnings shrink every day and the forecast for cash over the next five years is astonishing with cash in some parts of the UK and the globe disappearing all together.
Whilst tipping is our bread and butter we also see huge advantages of digitising tipping including direct feedback and reviews for the worker themselves, which can act as a resumè for future jobs or just re-enforce their value to their current employer. The data on consumers, businesses and employees could become as important and the income generate from receiving and handling tips themselves.
Our founder James Brown who has a number of years as retail director for the global phenomenon of Brewdog saw the opportunity when the venues he ran in London opted to become cashless. A cashless operation was cheaper, quicker and ultimately more convenient for everyone but… there was one loser. The team saw a reduction in tips. This is where the idea was born to put the power back in the team members hands of receiving and managing their tips directly.
The complex UK tax laws around tipping cause businesses large and small headaches and our platform isn’t just about the employee and the consumer. It is also designed to take away the pain, the politics and the risk (both financial & reputational) that the hospitality industry are currently experiencing.
We have a fantastic set of seed investors but we plan a new round of funding closing towards the end of 2019. If there are interested parties we would love to chat to you about our plans in further detail so drop us a line and say hello.
