Integration enables socially-conscious marketplace to use promotional ‘codes for good’ to connect diners with restaurants and provide free meals to fight hunger
Leading marketing technology company, Eagle Eye Solutions, is partnering with TangoTab, the popular socially-conscious mobile app that connects diners with restaurants to donate free meals to charity.
TangoTab was founded in 2010 by serial entrepreneur and philanthropist Andre Angel, and has already donated 4 million meals to US charities fighting hunger. Listing over 100k participating food outlets, it donates a free meal to those in need every time a customer checks in to dine via its free mobile app.
Tapping into the rise of the ‘kindness economy’ and more conscious consumer consumption, the upcoming national launch of TangoTab will help embattled foodservice and hospitality operators drive footfall and sales as they look recover in the wake of the Covid-19 lockdown. Instead of offering a discount, the app promises consumers that, “when you eat, they eat”: a donation made each time a diner checks in at a participating venue enables TangoTab to provide a local food organisation enough to cover the cost of a meal for someone in need.
Eagle Eye will play a central role in TangoTab’s UK launch. It will facilitate the customer check-in and donation process through its AIR marketing platform. It will generate unique “codes for good” at check-in to provide TangoTab with the real-time redemption validation it needs to collect its charitable revenues. Eagle Eye AIR will also provide the scale to rapidly build a charitable community marketplace for UK diners by connecting TangoTab to Eagle Eye’s extensive client network of over 5,000 UK hospitality venues.
‘The hospitality industry has borne the brunt of the impact of the global pandemic during lockdown. So, it’s fantastic to partner with an innovative concept like TangoTab that helps operators attract more custom by using our AIR platform for good as the lockdown is eased,’ said Al Henderson, Chief Sales Officer, Eagle Eye. ‘We’re incredibly proud to provide the Eagle Eye AIR platform integration, redemption network and issuance capabilities for such a great cause, ensuring that the revenue TangoTab generates can be easily and accurately tracked, attributed and put towards feeding those most in need.’
‘More than 8 million people in the UK are struggling to afford to eat and 1.5 million go whole days without food. TangoTab’s mission is to empower diners to be part of the solution, in a simple, frictionless way. Just check-in at a restaurant through TangoTab app and we will donate a meal to someone in need,’ said Stefano Giolito, Co-Founder, TangoTab UK. ‘We believe that businesses can be a force for good. Not only do we want to tackle the hunger emergency in UK, we are keen to partner with its hospitality industry to create a meaningful and compelling incentive for diners as the lockdown is eased.’
