VANCOUVER, B.C. , Nov. 28, 2018 — Glance Technologies Inc. (“Glance” or the “Company”) (CSE:GET.CN) (OTCQB:GLNNF) (FKT:GJT) today announced it is conducting live on-site tests of its new “Real-Time Bill” feature with select merchants.
This cutting-edge new feature, Real-Time Bill, enables users to view and pay their bill in real time directly from the Glance Pay App without needing to wait for a paper bill. The app identifies the user’s bill based on Quick Response (QR) codes or Near-Field Communication (NFC) tags at their table and accesses and settles the appropriate bill in real-time from the merchant’s point-of-sale system.
Real-Time Digital Bill was one of the reasons that Glance added the previously announced capability to integrate with more than an estimated 500,000 different POS installations in North America, thus opening this new feature to a broad market.
“Everyone has experienced frustration waiting for a bill at a restaurant or pub when they needed to get to a show, a meeting, or an airport,” says Glance CEO Desmond Griffin, “with our new Real-Time Bill technology, a user can choose to access their bill, pay, and go at anytime.”
This feature allows merchants to offer a more convenient experience to their customers while increasing productivity, turning tables over more quickly and reducing costs related to processing paper. Further, by eliminating paper, merchants can operate in a more environmentally-friendly and sustainable way that aligns with Glance’s values.
After completing tests with select merchants, Glance plans to make the Real-Time Bill feature available to its merchant base by the end of its next fiscal quarter. Glance believes that innovative features such as Real-Time Bill and the upcoming “Order from Table” will make its platform more attractive to potential merchants and will improve its ability to generate Software as a Service (SaaS) fees from merchants.
