Last year, Parqer launched its iPhone and Android apps to bring the cashless convenience of mobile payments to the valet parking industry. Today, we're excited to announce our next leap forward in payment innovation: Barqer.
Traditionally operating on a cash-only basis, dog parks stubbornly remain one of the few outliers as we continue moving closer and closer to a cash-free society. Using Barqer, owners (and their pets!) will now be able to enjoy the benefits and convenience of Parqer's mobile payment system together.
Through Barqer's location-based system, users are able to see a list of all nearby dog parks accepting Barqer, organized by proximity. Barqer offers maps, directions, promotions, and more - all geared to helping you do what's important: spend time with your furry friends!
By tying in with your social media networks, you'll be able to send peer-to-peer and GPS-based payments to other pet owners. Need to borrow a towel after a last-minute jump in the lake? Send that friend a quick payment from you and your dog.
Forgot some of the essentials like tennis balls, clean-up bags, or treats? Using iBeacon technology, Barqer will be a payment option at vending machines conveniently located at the entrance to the park. If you don't see what you need, let us know and we'll make sure it's there for you next time.
Finally, through integration with the Whistle Activity Monitor, you'll be able to track your pup's day at the park, unlock challenges, and earn Barqer-points which can be redeemed for tons of great things for dogs - and people!
Never have cash for the dog park? Stop borrowing from friends or looking for ATMs. Start playing with Barqer. For more information, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
