Fira De Barcelona Partners with Airtag to Launch a Mobile Ordering Solution

NEW YORK & PARIS --(Business Wire)--

AIRTAG, the leading provider of mobile shopping solutions today announces a partnership with Fira de Barcelona, to launch the venue's first ever mobile ordering solution. Mobile ordering at Fira's restaurants has been integrated into the current app using AIRTAG's AIRSHOP API solution, which are white label mobile libraries that connect with a retailer's existing app and databases to simplify the addition of mobile commerce features. The new functionalities enable Fira de Barcelona event goers, to advance order and pay for meals by mobile phone and check-in at a restaurant using NFC and QR code technology.

"At high volume events, where most people are eating out at the same time, mobile commerce can really make the process faster and more convenient for customers," said J�r�mie Leroyer CEO & Co-founder of AIRTAG. "We are thrilled to be working with Fira de Barcelona on this new project which will demonstrate how cashless mobile shopping and innovative technologies can improve everyday customer journeys in a big way."

Customer journey snapshot

  • The customer chooses their preferred restaurant theme such as sandwiches or seafood
  • Desired products are added to the basket and paid for using PayPal (News - Alert)
  • An order confirmation is stored in the app for in-store order pick-up

At their own leisure, the customer goes to the restaurant to pick-up the order and checks in with NFC or QR code technology by tapping or scanning a tag (News - Alert) near the restaurant's entrance. To add more value to the customer journey, mobile orders are picked-up at a designated check-out, which will move much quicker than other lines because there is no cash exchange or credit card processing at the point of sale.

Fira de Barcelona will use AIRSHOP APIs to deliver hundreds of thousands of conference goers throughout the year, a more convenient ordering and payment experience.
