(above are sample images, development is in early phase)
We are TouchGate Software & Innovative formed on 2018, Philippines. This is our first time here. We are a little startup company currently working on the development of a TRUE Open Source Loyalty Platform we called TouchPoints with dual license of either MIT or BSD. This is targeted for Food Services like restos & diners, fast-foods, etc.. but will also work to Merchandies stores and other shops. The software will be designed to be easily customizable for white-labeling. Franchisors would probably love this.
We are just a few people in our company, and has a very little capital not sufficient to sustain our operation. As aspiring entreprenuers taking risks to pursue our dreams hopefully making some profits. Currently we're working home-based.
We're seeking for a $20,000 grant to kickstart, develop and publish our open-source product for the next 6-12 months to anyone who's willingly & want to support us in making a great product. That asking might be low but its better than nothing. This is NOT a minimun viable product or proof-of-concept, this is a fully functional commercial grade software that will be available for everyone for use, revise and white-label. We will continue to develop and improve the product as long as there is funding out there. There are too many junk open-source software out there, and only a few were high-quality that eventually graduate to commercial grade unless backed by something else.
How does our platform compared to others already out there? There maybe a lot of there already available but we couldn't find any simple and truely free solution without limitations. So here's ours:
- Our software is Open-Source, you can clone and create modify to your needs
- Our software is a web application written in NodeJS & MySQL
- NO restrictions capabilities, NO hidden fees, NO obligations
- It will be available in GitHub once we reached our milestone
- True scalability and true privacy of data since you can deploy the app on your own servers.
- REST API + JWT Driven, you can use you existing mobile apps or POS system to integrate
- Optional messaging using twillio, semaphore, mailgun & mailchimp comes as standard
Here are the capabilities of our Loyalty Platform:
- Dashboard - basic information on the progress/success rate of you campaigns (we will try to improved this)
- Coupons - rewards gamification like are redeemable items with certain rules for your customers
- Rules - you can customize a coupon up to code level using our own mechanics builder
eg. Only give coupons to customer in Location X whos Birthday is Today and has Ordered 20+ times
- Campaigns - Bulk messaging with target groups to improve customer retention
- Customers - customer accounts/wallets with personal information attached and points credits
- Transctions - List of events for giving/consuming points of the customers
- Stores - Our platform is designed to be used by multiple Companies and/or Store Branches
- Audit - Every action performed in our platform will be recorded
- Settings - to white label our product without modifying any code
- Users - for administrator and campaign creators (users of the platform)
- Front end - customer registration, transactions & wallet viewer & list of available coupons/promo
We currently have a product that want to incorporate with this,
It's called e.Menu but this is a paid product.
