Digital Mobile First payment Platform

Tigapo purports itself to have the industry’s “most advanced contactless payment system built for the new world order and recommended by IAAPA and other experts.”

Their cloud-based management and monetization system for coin-operated machines provides operators with the confidence to open safely and recover faster in the Covid era, they say.

“Tigapo’s app-based contactless payment platform is not just the future of payments – it’s the smartest and safest choice you can make right now,” noted CEO Sid Banon. Leading industry and health experts from IAAPA and World Health Organization have urged that contactless and mobile payment solutions are sound business practices for a safer and healthier operation of amusement businesses.”

It’s data made easy at Tigapo, they say. Their customer engagement platform employs artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze guest behavior, usage and spending habits data. From there, they translate it and automatically deliver reports that provide recommendations for operators and programs they can implement to drive their business. Tigapo’s machine learning algorithm continues to learn and improve. Company execs explain the more data it analyzes, the more accurate it becomes in predicting complicated consumer behaviors.

Tigapo provides powerful payment features fully compatible with Apple Pay and Google Pay. The company says its solution is an innovative combination of hardware and software designed for coin-operated machines, and easily integrates with existing bill validator, coin mech and any other payment systems. It consists of an easy-to-install device with a 5” HD screen that utilizes an NFC (near field communications) antenna for device-to-device connection, with or without a smartphone, as well as utilizing Wi-Fi and cellular channels.

Tigapo’s technology is wifi and cellular enabled, has an NFC antenna and has a 5” HD screen. The company also says its mechanical and electrical installation is easy.

Tigapo execs say data shows that users spend more with their system. In a recent retail location deployment, users spent an average of 21% more dollars using the Tigapo app versus the legacy installed card-based payment system, the company reports.

“We built our business to help you learn more about your customers and create actionable insights to drive additional revenue,” Banon added. “The fact that it is also the safest way for you to engage with your consumers as they return will undoubtedly be a strategic advantage.”

Tigapo – founded in 2016 with a U.S.-based office in New York and headquarters in Israel – says it’s offering exceptional pricing and terms that enable operators to add the most advanced technology for no startup cost. They are also hosting ongoing webinars to show operators first-hand how Tigapo works and have their sales and development teams answer questions.
