Tim Hortons Announces Quickpay Tim Card on Your Smart Phone

Introducing mobile tap and scan payment options for in-restaurant purchases 
OAKVILLE, ON, Dec. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Tim Hortons today announced new mobile 
payment options aimed at improving speed of service and enhancing guest 
experience in its restaurants throughout Canada and the United States. As part 
of the company's ongoing commitment to operational excellence and guest 
satisfaction, the strategy includes the adoption of technological innovations 
at both the restaurant level and through the company's popular TimmyMe™ 
mobile application. 
"We're always looking to provide our Tim Hortons guests with the best overall 
customer experience, and mobile payment is one area that we feel can help 
streamline the average time spent at the order counter," said David Clanachan, 
Chief Operating Officer, Tim Hortons. "These new innovations offer secure, 
quick and easy payment alternatives, allowing our guests more time enjoying 
their favourite food and beverages." 
Now available at participating restaurants throughout Canada and the United 
States guests using BlackBerry® 10 smartphones (including the BlackBerry® 
Q5, BlackBerry® Q10, BlackBerry®Z10 and BlackBerry® Z30 smartphones) will 
be able to register a Tim Card on the TimmyMe™ mobile app and use near field 
communication (NFC) tap-to-pay technology to complete their order. This is one 
of the first integrations of an NFC based stored value card solution with 
existing payment terminals. Future development plans will also see this 
platform expanded to Android 4.4 devices. 
Tim Hortons has also launched a barcode payment pilot program in the Niagara 
region in Canada and at select USA Tim Hortons Cafe & Bake Shop restaurants in 
Maine, Michigan, New York, and Ohio. The barcode technology, which provides 
a scan-to-pay option once a Tim Card has been registered on the TimmyMe™ 
app, supports Apple devices running OS 6.0 or later and Android devices 
running OS 4.0 or later. 
"Tim Hortons is taking a customer-centric and technology-neutral approach 
while leveraging mobile payments to create unique customer value and 
experiences," said Rick Oglesby, senior analyst, Aite Group. "It combines the 
benefits of the cloud with benefits of NFC into a single solution, making it 
one of the first of its kind in QSR and something we should see a lot more of 
in the future." 
Guests looking for the fastest and easiest way to pay are encouraged to 
download the TimmyMe™ app on their mobile device and register a Tim Card to 
establish a payment balance in their personal account. 
Tim Hortons has partnered with First Data Corporation, a global leader in 
payment processing and e-commerce solutions, to deliver tap and scan payments 
through their mobile gateway technology. First Data makes it possible for 
registered Tim Card users to securely make mobile payments and view their Tim 
Card balance and transaction history.
