Drink, dine and socialise with TIP, an innovative lifestyle app specifically designed for professionals in the hospitality industry. Founded by an industry-experienced team, with over 15 years of hospitality experience each, TIP is set to become the must-have app for all those working in this industry.
TIP aims to generate incremental revenue for venues with periods of low demand, by offering exclusive benefits and discounts to its members-only community of hospitality professionals. Members can also use the app as a social platform on which to connect and engage with friends, and build and expand their network within the industry. The app also allows them to gain access to career opportunities and offers exclusive live tutorials, delivered by industry professionals. Furthermore, TIP has created a unique partnership with Hotel.School, the next-generation Swiss hotel school, offering scholarships, discounts, and free certified online courses.
Comprising innovative UX design along with the latest app technology, TIP’s intelligent in-built algorithms mean members will be able to get personalised TIPs based on their individual preferences. It is well documented that those working within the industry love to go out after work and will spend their money. The app therefore highlights the hotspots they need to know and suggests new favourite places – all whilst offering them the benefit of fantastic deals that they won’t be able to get anywhere else.
The challenges of recent times have seen the hospitality industry hardest hit economically. Bookings and revenue have dropped dramatically, and employees have suffered from reduced income, or no income whatsoever. Born as a result of these challenges, TIP is more than simply a booking tool – it aims to support and promote hospitality venues, connect employees within the industry, and ultimately drive revenue. TIP invites its new members to join the good vibes and support the hospitality community.
TIP works closely with Hospitality Action, the Hospitality Industry Benevolent Organisation, which offers vital assistance to all those who work or who have worked within the hospitality sector in the UK, and who find themselves in crisis. “Our vision is to strengthen the hospitality community even more, especially in these difficult times,” explains Martijn Mulder, Co-Founder of TIP. “With every new member and every new venue subscription, TIP will give back to the hospitality community by donating a percentage to Hospitality Action, to help industry professionals get back on their feet.”
