wi-Q Technologies has announced that its web-based digital engagement platforms, wi-Q and Mi-Room, will now support payments via global bitcoin payment service provider, BitPay.
wi-Q is the web-based integrated mobile ordering solution developed for F&B outlets, whilst Mi-Room delivers solutions for the full spectrum of hotel guest services including in-room ordering, booking spa treatments, guest loyalty and even housekeeping requests. In addition to cash, debit or credit card, PayPal and charge to room, venues with wi-Q or Mi-Room can now allow their customers or guests to pay from their own device with Bitcoin via BitPay.
In the last year alone, wi-Q Technologies has won numerous industry awards, delivered integrations and partnerships with the world’s leading hospitality technology providers including Oracle Hospitality, Aircharge and Epson. The company’s user-centric technology has already been successfully implemented in venues and hotel groups across the world.
BitPay is the world’s leading bitcoin payment provider, covering financial services, e-wallets, software, gaming and now, hospitality. BitPay processed over $1B USD worth of transactions in 2017.
Graham Cornhill, Co-Founder and Managing Director of wi-Q Technologies said,
“The vision behind wi-Q and Mi-Room was to make the mobile ordering process fast, simple and seamless. Choice is equally important in a global market where users don’t want to be forced into downloading, updating and storing multiple apps. With wi-Q, customers can instantly choose their language, filter products depending personal preferences and choose how they pay. Our solutions support PayPal, Credit / Debit Card, Tola Mobile, Apple Pay, Cash, Charge-To-Room - and now BitPay. It is quite possible that one day, a cryptocurrency, or more likely, several cryptocurrencies will be widely adopted for mobile ordering and as an innovator in digital guest engagement, it is a future trend we are keen to explore.”
Sonny Singh, Chief Commercial Officer at BitPay said,
“Bitcoin is the ideal payment method for mobile service applications and with BitPay, wi-Q Technologies can accept bitcoin for hospitality services quickly and easily from anywhere in the world.”
