One of Tim Hortons key initiatives over the next 5-years is to focus on technology. We know that they will be launching TimsTV, coming out with a new point of sale system, and today the Canadian company declared a rollout of its mobile payment strategy.
The barcode scan-to-pay option has been in testing for a few months in various Canadian and American locations, but Timmies notes that this is now available at all its 4,480 locations in Canada and the United States (3,610 in Canada, 870 in the United States).
The TimmyMe app is available to download on iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Android and BlackBerry 10 devices. Once you register and top up your card you can then easily scan and pay for you order upon cashing out.
“We’re continuously working to implement best-in-class, customer-centric technology in our restaurants and the launch of mobile barcode payments enables us to offer the best overall guest experience,” said David Clanachan, Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons. “Enhancing our technology so that guests can store their digital Tim Card in their phone for quick and easy payments is an added convenience we know customers will enjoy.”
