Maboneng Set to Become SA’s First Smart Neighborhood with The Shakers Rewards Card

The Shakers Cashless Payments and Rewards card is quick, easy and convenient and improves wait times and customer safety.

Shakers Bar, in the cultural, business and lifestyle hub Maboneng, launched its pilot Cashless Payments and Rewards Card on the 26th March. Managed by Cashless Fox the card lets patrons access their own accounts, view itemised billing and receive special offers from participating venues. The initiative is powered by the Allxs Closed Loop Payment Platform, boasting many features designed to improve customer experience by increasing speed and convenience. The cashless platform includes an integrated mobile app that will allow members to manage their balance and rewards. The app will also allow participating vendors to deliver personalised offers in the venue and in neighborhood using GPS and beacon technology.

“The cashless system has had an immediate impact on improving wait times, increasing sales, speeding up transaction time and help curb theft associated with handling and carrying cash.”-  Shakers Owner and local entrepreneur Mpho Masilo.

Maboneng embodies a strong sense of community and the cashless solution removes the risks attached to carrying cash when enjoying the sights, and allow cardholders access to multiple discounts, tickets, and vouchers that can be redeemed at all member outlets. Cards are available at Shakers and customers can top up their cards at the venue, online or within the payment APP.

“We are very excited to power South Africa’s first smart, connected neighborhood managed by local entrepreneurs to directly benefit the community. Maboneng will deliver a safe and truly personalized experience at all participating outlets employing the latest in cutting-edge technology.” – Raphael Domalik director of Allxs Media.

The benefits for participating vendors include an increase in sales due to efficient payments and services as well as access to analytical data and improved controls.

“Our long-term goal is to supply vendors with true live analytical data on customers and buying trends or habits. Helping the vendors better understand their customers and streamline their business model or products to best suit the seasonal and everyday consumer. Further innovations to the solution will allow Cashless Fox to supply Groupon like discounted packages on the cashless cards for the average local or international traveler to the Maboneng district.” – Ian Surgeon of Cashless Fox.
