300 bars and pubs sign up to smartphone payments in Australia

Apple and Android smartphones will be used across supported bars and pubs to manage and pay the bill

Settling the bill across 300 Australian bars and pubs will become a lot easier following the adoption of a smartphone app, called Clipp.

Patrons can use the app on their smartphones to open, view, share and pay the bar tab or restaurant bill across 300 venues owned by the Australian Leisure and Hospitality (AHL) Group.

Using smartphones to manage the bill should improve how quickly staff can tend to customers and make paying for bills more secure, said Greg Taylor, co-founder and COO of Clipp.

“A user’s credit card details are stored securely within the app, so they no longer have to worry about their credit card which is sitting behind the bar. They can continue to enjoy their night out,” said Taylor.

The application includes several features, such as a bar locator, group tab sharing, a built-in tipping functionality and the ability to review bars.

The deal with AHL doubles the number of venues supporting Clipp to 600. The Clipp application is available as a free download on Android and iOS smartphones.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
