Maggiano’s Little Italy testing mobile solutions from Mocapay and eNational Payments
Denver Mocapay and eNational Payments, a provider of mobile and contactless electronic commerce and payment processing services, announced the implementation of a Mocapay enabled “Mobile Wallet” and eNational’s location-based, geo-fencing platform at select Maggiano’s Little Italy restaurant locations.
The test launch with Maggiano’s is being conducted in select locations across the country. As part of the launch, eNational Payments will implement a geo-fencing platform within a two-mile radius around each location. Geo-fencing, or location-based marketing, is a virtual perimeter that adds the dimension of a users’ location, which can help ensure messages are relevant to both your consumers’ preferences and their location.
Additionally, Maggiano’s customers will be offered Mocapay’s mobile suite to provide loyalty and gift coupons. Through the eNational Payments “Gold Rewards” Mobile Wallet, customers will be able to pay and reload their mobile accounts, check transaction histories, receive customized, pertinent loyalty and reward offers and find the nearest Maggiano’s store locations—all from the convenience of their mobile phones.
