The BarCode & Switch4Profit – Two relatively young companies, who’s founders pack years of experience in hospitality operations and marketing, have been brought together by Paul Pavli of Paul Pavli Consultancy to make their joint proposition more attractive for all hospitality outlets coming out of lockdown from today (12 April 2021) – fingers crossed!
The BarCode, set up by Ben Milnes and Phillip May, already has an ever growing number of outlets using their services since they launched in 2019. Milnes states “We are first and foremost footfall drivers and by bringing together fantastic independent venues under one banner, we are creating a marketplace to rival any large group. We give our venues fantastic tools to increase visibility, drive footfall and keep the independent scene thriving. There is also an option to use our app as your ‘Order & Pay at Table’ solution”.
The BarCode’s proposition is simple:
- Promote your venue to a new and wider audience
- Table ordering with optional in-app/contactless payments, integrated reservations, click n’ collect, delivery, bill sharing
- EPoS integrated or web-based options
- No setup costs, monthly charges, service fees or commissions
What then makes this proposition even more attractive is the collaboration with Switch4Profit. S4P was formed by Paul Marsh following a consultancy in the payment services sector focused on hospitality which to date has over 200 clients (majority in hospitality including multiples), operating over 400 trading outlets, and has introduced savings for them in excess of £1.25m per annum on merchant services alone. S4P can review and advise what payment solutions you are currently using, especially if you have different providers for an app to your credit card terminals.
Marsh claims “The suppliers we work with are the leaders and disruptors in their field. Those that provide a combination of the best service and price. They value what we do and they are part of our team. We have sourced the very best, vetted them and feel confident that all the fat has been stripped out”.
- Buy operators out of their current merchant services contracts
- Introduce significant savings
- Provide the latest technology in the sector
- Integrate with The BarCode app and most EPOS systems (if required)
- All on a monthly rolling agreement with no long term contract
Together The BarCode and S4P can provide a FREE overview of an operator’s facilities and an assessment of how The BarCode app and services can help drive new customers to the venue. As part of that process S4P provide a free review of the existing EPOS, credit card terminal and order / pay at table providers (if applicable/required).
Paul Pavli Consultancy says that “The partnership simply makes sense and if an operator can see the benefit of this free review and service, then the savings the partnership can introduce more than funds the cost of any promotional discounts that they be willing to advertise through the app.”
