San Francisco-based CARDFREE has inked an exclusive agreement to use Bluedot Innovation’s location services technology in restaurants in the U.S.
Bluedot Innovation is enabling a new generation of location-based commerce through its cutting-edge technology that delivers 20x the precision of competing products. It offers the maximum achievable precision of GPS but without the battery drain usually experienced or the need for new hardware, such as beacons or sensors. As a result, Bluedot Innovation enables location-based triggers so consumers may receive an offer, submit an order, enable a mobile payment or any number of services automatically based on their proximity to the entrance or drive-thru.
CARDFREE’s award-winning mobile commerce platform provides full customer lifecycle capabilities, including smart offers, gifting, order-ahead, stored value, payments, loyalty and rich data analytics. Built to accommodate large-scale deployments, the platform has been selected by numerous top 50 quick service restaurants (“QSRs”) and is currently expanding to other restaurant categories and verticals including grocery and convenience stores.
In addition to servicing restaurants in the US, CARDFREE and Bluedot Innovation also plan to partner in international markets later this year.
