We're building a mobile loyalty program for restaurants. Customers can earn rewards by "check-in". This check-in is different from facebook or foursquare, which is GPS-based and can be faked. Our check-in requires customers to be physically inside the restaurant. Restaurants can reward customer based on their revisits.
The goal is to help restaurants attract more returning customers, and help customers to receive VIP experiences as they return the restaurants that they like.
We're going to place a table tent on each table that allows our customers to check-in, using QR code, or tab their phone against the card (RFID). Also, for first time users, the table tent will be a "shortcut" for the customers to download the the application
On the tent, restaurants will put some promotional messages to get customers' attention.
