It's been a busy couple of weeks for the Localz team, particularly in Europe where, following on from the recent announcement of winning JLAB, we have now been selected to work with PayPal within their UK Start Tank initiative.
A number of the Localz team have a payments and financial services background, and we're already working on refining the mobile payments experience leveraging our micro-location platform. Working with the PayPal and Braintree teams in London will help us accelerate this work, along with making use of the other benefits of PayPal's blueprint programme.
There are four other great companies also participating in Start Tank including:
- BarPass: a free mobile application that, at participating venues and events, enables you to view menus, order and securely pay all from your mobile device
- Henchman and Co: an app that brings you anything you want delivered from top London restaurants, grocery stores and retail stores in 60 minutes within London
- Megatransfert Finance: a secure system for converting your telephone plans in euros
- Trendii: a platform that gives you the tools to create something new and imaginative every day
We'll be bringing you updates on the programme and our product developments over the next few months. If you'd like to know more in the meantime, get in touch.
