LISNR Partners With Refill To Improve Contactless Venue Access & Fulfillment
The partnership will help Refill deliver touchless entry and payment authorization across its portfolio of nearly 50 merchants and stadium venues.
LISNR will enable advanced proximity verification, identification, and payments services to Refill across its suite of services
LISNR, the global leader in proximity solutions, announced its partnership with Refill Technologies, a mobile ordering leader, to facilitate contactless solutions for opening up access in congested venues.
Currently, establishments struggle with lines to gain entry and overcrowding at bars and concession stands making access to food and beverage very challenging. Incumbent modalities like the QR code or “tap to pay” continue to require close proximity and thus present a multitude of safety issues. By working together, LISNR and Refill will provide ultrasonic authentication for purposes such as assigned seating and mobile ordering where proximity verification occurs at fulfillment.
“LISNR identified Refill as a strong strategic partner in the merchant service space, said Eric Allen, CEO, LISNR. “In these times where overcrowded venues can pose a serious health risk, we believe that the partnership between LISNR and Refill can effectively solve the problem of congestion at fulfillment in these establishments.”
In 2020, due to the pandemic, restaurant and foodservice sales missed forecasted projections to the tune of $240 Billion. As consumers return to normally congested venues in this “new normal”, they are going to expect safe and secure ordering and fulfillment solutions. Rapidly, these types of solutions have become an essential element to the customer experience.
“By partnering with LISNR, we will be able to easily implement a secure & contactless form of authentication at fulfillment. As venues start to allow more and more capacity, it’s imperative that the correct tech solution is in place that ensures both a safe method of authentication and doesn’t compromise the customer experience. We believe that LISNR enables us to provide that solution”. – Anthony Reynolds, CEO, Co-Founder, REFILL
