This Small Business Month, we know there are big stories to tell. To recognize the incredible work of our small business community, we’re spotlighting a few who are helping shape the Canadian economy and making an impact with their ingenuity and innovation, each and every day.
Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, 83% of small businesses began embracing digitization* to better meet the needs of their businesses and communities.
That’s why Canadian tech scale-up tiptap chose Rogers for Business to support the development of its technology, a near-field-communication enabled wireless receiver allowing for instant, contactless payments and donations. With cash payments in rapid decline, tiptap has become a critical option for charities, events, transportation services and fundraising programs.
tiptap’s touchless payment solution allows patrons to easily support and fund those in need. To make this idea possible, they knew they needed a low-bandwith network specifically designed for secure IoT solutions and a shared vision with a national cellular network provider.
“From our very early discussions, Rogers saw potential and viability, not just from a business perspective but also for the community and those in need,” explained Chris Greenfield, CEO and founder of tiptap. “As a result, we felt that they had a vested interest in what we do.”
To set tiptap up for success, Rogers for Business worked closely with processor and chip manufacturers to ensure Rogers advanced IoT network and tiptap’s devices communicate seamlessly. Tiptap arrived in market ahead of schedule – easy to embed across numerous locations and ready to make a difference.
More recently, tiptap has been working with Wounded Warriors, a national mental health service provider that receives funding from partners and individual donors to provide care for Canada’s Veterans, First Responders and their families. Learn more in the video below:
Always feeling supported, with tools that make sense for your business – that’s the Rogers for Business advantage.
