FEASTY, powered by Cincinnati-based Zipscene’s consumer dining data, has been selected as one of 13 companies nationwide to compete in the PYMNTS/Alexa Tech Challenge— a first-of-its-kind, five-week challenge created in partnership between PYMNTS and Alexa, Amazon’s virtual assistant. Over the next five weeks, the selected companies will develop and execute a prototype that uses Alexa to solve a problem, remove a point of friction or otherwise add value to the payments and commerce system. Other companies selected for and competing in the challenge include USAA, Vantiv, Visa, Discover, Western Union and more.
“FEASTY is honored to partner with Zipscene in Amazon’s 2016 PYMNTS tech challenge,” said FEASTY founder Anthony Breen. “We are excited to show how our integrated solutions are empowering restaurants to provide easy to use, realtime customer engagement through leading technology like Amazon Alexa.”
