Vancouver, BC, August 25, 2020 – Ready, a financial technology company that offers seamless self-pay and food ordering solutions to hospitality venues across North America, announced today its partnership with FreedomPay,a global leader in Next Level Commerce™. The partnership combines Ready’s connected dining platform with FreedomPay’s consumer-centric commerce solution to provide a robust, safe, and secure payment option that enhances the consumer experience and adds significant value to the hospitality industry.
“FreedomPay is a leader in global payment processing, so it’s great to welcome them to the Ready partnership ecosystem,” said Laurent May, Head of Ready. “We have a shared vision to bring a highly secure, integrated and seamless experience to the hospitality industry and working together enables that even more.

Being completely consumer driven and 100% touchless, the solution seamlessly facilitates safe dining practices both on and off-premise and, most importantly, provides a choice for guests at a time when it matters most.
