JORDAN Casey, who seems to have been writing code and designing apps forever, is actually just 20 years of age and he’s been keeping his head down during the Covid-19 lockdown, working on an app that will allow restaurants to reopen a lot more safely in the coming months.
“Tablepay”, which is an add-on to his already successful app “SCNE” will allow customers to safely order and pay for their food and beverages right their at the table, without ever having to approach a bar, or member of staff. When restaurants eventually reopen, there will be a massive reliance on health, safety and especially social distancing measures. Speaking to the Waterford News & Star this week, Jordan says that he believes the app will play a great role in “restoring confidence and peace of mind when revisiting Waterford’s fantastic hospitality and tourism sector in the very near future”.
“This has obviously been an extremely turbulent and unprecedented time for everybody including all of our amazing venue partners,” Jordan said. “In attempting to make do with the time I had to reflect over the last two months and also in an effort to see how we could support our venues, the idea for Tablepay came about. We’ve seen huge success with these types of products on a national level previously, and we feel that now, more than ever, there is a real demand and necessity for a zero-contact solution that at the same time proves to be very convenient and could certainly help in re-attracting customers.”
Since launching in June, the SCNE app has been downloaded over 5000 times by students, tourists and local revellers alike. It showcases all of the amazing hospitality offerings in Waterford whilst also giving customers a chance to save a few bob as well. The new Tablepay technology will be offered to all Waterford venues completely free of charge during the pandemic.
