This is a PARTNER event with our friends at the NYC Clover Development Meetup (https://www.meetup.com/New-York-Clover-Development-Meetup/) and hosted by Dev Advocate James Cha (https://www.meetup.com/gdgnyc/members/30859242/) (@thejamescha (https://twitter.com/theJamesCha)).
6:30 - 6:45 Drinks and Networking
6:45 - 7:30 Featured Talk: SmartTap @Google IO 2017 (Speaker: Duane Moore, VP Eng @Clover)
Clover is a Point-of-Sale Payments solution with hardware and software components that make it easy for developers and businesses to monetize their products with a simple tap. They have rich Developer solutions to make it frictionless to integrate and use payments from your mobile/web app.
At Google I/O, Google announced a lot of updates to its Payment API and Android Pay offerings (https://techcrunch.com/2017/05/18/android-pay-to-expand-to-new-markets-add-improved-loyalty-card-features/), including integration with Clover's Developer Platform to support new application use cases around payments, loyalty & gift card redemption, and order ahead with smart tap. Clover CEO John Beatty then demonstrated the integration of Smart Tap with Clover devices (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u39By1LMyv4) onstage at an IO talk on online commerce.
We believe monetization platforms and integration for online and in-store purchases will be a key requirement for most apps and will be of interest to app developers.
ABOUT THE TALK:
At Google IO 2017, Clover showed its platform power by teaming up with the Google Payments team to have the Tap for Treats scavenger hunt. Hundreds of attendees from all over the world participated for a prize of a limited edition Droid figurine. What they had to do for the glorious prize was to visit 4 different locations and Tap for a Treat and for Perka loyalty points on the Clover device.
Duane Moore will be presenting on the engineering feat it took to allow utilizing a single tap for both Loyalty and Payment. Working on Clover’s secure board to allow a flow that accepts both allowing that data to Perka’s loyalty system which communicated to Google Android Pay Loyalty card.
