QRatuity

    An Easy to Use Tipping App for Service Industry

QRatuity is an online platform for the service providers to register and receive their Tips simply by QR Code scanning.

About Project

QRatuity is a US based startup and their vision is to set up an online platform for the service providers which would enable them to receive tips in an organized manner. While tipping is not mandatory in most of the United States, it is customary in many circumstances for service, especially at almost all sit-down restaurants which offer table service and many food servers depend on tips as an essential part of their wages.

The requirement of QRatuity was based on a simple model by which a customer would be able to pay tips to the service providers using a mobile application (Android or iOS) simply by scanning the QR code. They desired a user friendly web application where the service providers could register themselves to start receiving tips. They also required a back office set up to easily view and manage transactions.

Challenges

The major challenges that the Team faced was to integrate the micro payments. Also material design for the Web as well as trying to reduce the cost of processing was a challenge for the Team.
