Mitchells & Butlers (M&B) has started integrating Flypay’s payment platform into the functionality of all its branded apps, while also incorporating Eagle Eye’s voucher redemption technology at point of payment.

The company said that the new functionality incorporates Flypay’s Pay At Table and Bar Tab services, while the app will also enable guests to redeem vouchers and promotions within one platform – a first for the pub and restaurant industry.

Stonehouse Pizza and Carvery has launched the functionality while All Bar One will follow suit before the end of August. The rest of Mitchells & Butlers’ portfolio will go live by the end of the year.

The group said it would continue to drive digital innovation as more guests sought flexibility to pay for food and drink on their smartphones.

M&B commercial and marketing director Chris Hopkins said: “We’re seeking to make our digital apps a one-stop shop for all customer needs. The introduction of faster payments through Flypay and its integration with digital vouchers served by Eagle Eye is a significant step towards this end goal.”
