Synergo partners with Lynq in developing a new dining experience

An app to help improve the profitability of bars and restaurants

Synergo Group is happy to support Lynq, a promising startup, recently launched in Toronto, Canada. Lynq has a unique approach to improve the profitability of bars and restaurants, while allowing customers to receive cash back automatically by just paying with their normal credit card. 

The entire hospitality industry faces, among other challenges, the challenge of getting people to start going out again. Long gone are the days when people used to randomly go out for a drink or have a bar-hop experience. The new dining experience after the pandemic is impacting all of us, and owners of bars and restaurants have been forced to improvise new ways of thinking. 

Lynq rewards users seamlessly and in the background, without needing coupons or staff involvement, when they connect with others face to face while having a meal or a drink. Lynq works with the credit card networks to deliver the discrete experience, rewarding users with real cash back in seconds.

A dedicated team at Synergo, working with the latest mobile technologies, helped develop an iOS and Android app, and supporting backend, to create this innovative hospitality experience for end–users (customers), and for owners of bars and restaurants alike. 

Synergo Group has extended expertise in the hospitality industry. 

A team of designers, developers, testers, product managers, business Analysts (an Agile team) worked closely with the business side of this product to understand consumer needs and to deliver a product with a great experience. 

Here are just a few features to be mentioned from the process of developing this product.

Recently, Lynq has been featured in the Toronto Star, Canada’s largest news publication, where Mark Jones, CEO of Lynq, explains the vision and the mission of this startup that came up with such a solution, a new type of hospitality experience, most needed during the recovery period of the pandemic. 

Lynq connects directly to the user’s credit card network and allows diners to redeem their rewards for cash via Interac e-Transfers. All you have to do is show up and pay with the card you have linked to your Lynq account.

“It’s seamless,” Jones said, and removes the need for coupons or QR codes that present more work for already stretched employees. Jones hopes to expand to cities outside of Toronto eventually, but for now, is looking to make an impact on this city’s re-emerging restaurant industry.”

“The loss and closures of local restaurants completely changed the fabric of our city and communities,” Jones said. “We need to do our best to continuously support them.”

Synergo Group Is One Of The Software Development Game Changers in Canada

As an award-winning software development company in Canada, we pride ourselves on having the best standards and practices when embarking on any project. But when it comes down to it, clients don’t select partners based on what we want them to see. They chose based on what other clients show them.

This is the story of how our past performances convinced an organization to partner with us for an important project. As well as how that project propelled us to greater heights.

The project involved a non-profit organization that focused on conservation education and awareness efforts. They were maintaining a citizen data collection program but found that they didn’t have the system, resources, or personnel to handle and analyze all of the incoming information.

According to the review, the company searched for vendors with software development experience and filtered them based on client feedback and review scores. Our scores helped us make the cut and our presentation gave us the edge we needed to be chosen for the project. 

Our goal was to develop a platform that streamlined the entire process and minimize human error as much as possible. We’re confident in saying that our team was successful in that regard just based on the score our client gave us on the review. But for those that want a bit more detail, they can read through the whole review on our Clutch profile.

The point that we want to highlight with this article is the strong connective power between our past reviews, this review, and the current development that we’re experiencing at the moment.

As the client mentioned, we were noticed and chosen because of the positive feedback and high scores on our past reviews. Thanks to the review and score that they gave us for this particular project, Synergo Group has been included in the list of top-rated companies in Canada by Clutch itself.

This is a most welcome development that will only help our own brand grow by leaps and bounds in the coming months. But we aren’t content with the place we have now. We know our team is capable of so much more and are eager to prove it.
