FOOD & INDUSTRY NEWS BEAT THE QUEUE AND MOVE TO MOBILE The average Londoner spends 9.11 minutes a week stuck in queues & industry news >>Global mobile payment, vouchering and loyalty app Zapper has joined forces with fellow queuing disruptor, WoraPay, to enable users to order ahead via their mobile phone. With the average UK consumer spending more than 18 hours a year stuck in queues, and Londoners the worst off averaging 9.11 minutes a week, this new order ahead capability allows Zapper users to squeeze more into their coffee break and venues to increase efficiency and footfall. Zapper’s simple solution currently enables users to scan a unique QR code to instantly upload their bill straight to their smartphone for fast and secure payments. Users can also redeem vouchers, gain loyalty rewards and leave feedback, all effortlessly carried out within the app. The WoraPay partnership means Zapper users will be able to search the app, access an interactive menu, order their item and then pay whilst automatically gaining vouchers and loyalty points. Consumers then receive an in-app follow up notification when their item is ready for collection.
