GLANCE TECHNOLOGIES ANNOUNCES JOINT VENTURE TARGETING MOBILE PAYMENT APP FOR CHINESE TOURISTS


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(April 26, 2017) - Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:GLNNF)(CSE:GET.CN) (FRANKFURT:GJT), is pleased to announce it has entered into a letter of intent to create an app that will target International Chinese students visiting and residing in North America with a company that founds and finances businesses targeted to Chinese residents in Canada, with its principal shareholder also the largest shareholder and a director of the newest tier 1 bank in Canada.

The parties plan to incorporate a new company which will purchase a license from Glance Technologies to use the Glance Pay payment system into a new mobile payment platform to cater to the growing population of International Chinese students visiting and residing in Canada. Glance Technologies will provide development work to the new company and will be a significant owner of it. The joint venture partner will be responsible for raising sufficient financing for the new venture to create, develop, market and operate the new venture. The new application will be available in Mandarin and English.

Given the exponential growth and integrated adoption of mobile payments in recent years in China and the rise of behemoth mobile payment service giants, such as Alipay, Tenpay, and China Union, it is clear that the ability to pay through mobile applications has become commonplace for Chinese consumers and this is moving beyond China and into spending at overseas destinations, such as Canada and the US. Alipay, China’s top mobile payment service of over 450 million users worldwide, recently surpassed a record high of a billion transactions, of which 71% of these transactions were conducted on a mobile device.

This growth coupled with the acknowledgment of Canada as a fast-growing tourist destination for Chinese visitors, contributing over $1 billion annually to the Canadian economy, and ranked at the 7th most popular academic destination for Chinese students, opens an entirely new market share for Glance to provide its integrated payment technology via the Glance Pay app at Canadian restaurants, retail stores, and merchant services. Glance is looking to market and provide its innovative payment processing app to an increasing population of international Chinese students living and studying in Canada, so students looking for the same ease and convenience of mobile payments already found China can access a similar payment experience right here in Canada.

The parties have entered into a non-binding letter of intent to undertake the joint venture, and are currently negotiating the terms of a definitive agreement.

Glance Pay's Order from Your Table to Disrupt Restaurant Industry


VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 20, 2017) - Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:GLNNF)(CSE:GET.CN) (FRANKFURT:GJT), is pleased to announce its new table ordering capabilities which allow consumers to prepay and order food & drinks directly from their table in restaurants via the Glance Pay app.

"Now with our complete set of features, Glance Pay is positioned to disrupt the restaurant industry as significantly as Uber disrupted the taxi and limousine industry," says Desmond Griffin, Glance's CEO.

Glance Pay will provide restaurant customers with one app that allows them to securely and conveniently:

order & pay for delivery
pre-order & pay for pickup / takeout
order from their table
pay for their meal when they are ready to leave
Anyone who has ever been sitting at a table in a busy pub or restaurant and wanted to order another round of drinks but had trouble getting the wait staff's attention will understand the benefit of being able to quickly and easily order and pay from your table using Glance Pay. Similarly, when visiting favourite lunch spots during busy periods, users often know exactly what they want - thus being able to easily re-order and pay for previous items using Glance Pay can save time and hassle, and lets users leave as soon as they are ready to go without waiting for a paper bill or a card machine to pay. And of course, the same great rewards and automatic digital receipts are available when using Glance Pay.

Some airports in North America have invested millions of dollars to outfit a few of their restaurants with iPads at each seat to allow guests to order and pay from their table.1 It has been estimated that people order up to 30% more due to the ability to self order.2 But these bulky iPads at each seat are extremely costly to run, do not remember user preferences, take up enormous table space, and ruin the dining experience by obstructing customers' view of their dining partners. People already have the latest mobile technology with them - their mobile phones - which allows Glance to provide a fantastic and cost effective ordering experience at any restaurant.

Glance Pay Announces Entry into Mobile Order-ahead Market



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 18, 2017) - Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:GLNNF)(CSE:GET.CN) (FRANKFURT:GJT), is pleased to announce its upcoming mobile order-ahead capabilities which will allow customers to instantly order for pick-up off the menu of participating restaurants and pay instantly on their mobile device.

Anyone who has ever stopped by their favourite cafe to pick up a morning cappuccino and saw a long line at the counter will understand the relief of being able to simply pre-order and pre-pay for their bill through their own mobile device. This ability to cut the line and pay directly with a mobile phone is catching like wildfire. With the rise of mobile order-ahead apps tailored specifically for chains such as Taco Bell, and Starbucks' order for pick-up mobile app, current evaluations of the mobile order-ahead market are estimated at $38 billion by 2020, and will account for 10.7% of the quick-serve industry sales alone. Already, Starbucks' mobile in-app orders represents 10% of total orders at high-volume stores. Similarly, ordering dinner for takeout at customers' favourite restaurants is often a repetitive affair where customers usually call in to order the same items every time and wait in line to pay when they pick up their food. With Glance Pay's order-ahead capabilities, users can select from previous orders then simply walk in and grab their food without dealing with payment in the restaurant.

"This is another natural evolution of our platform which allows us to continue to leverage our growing network of merchants and consumers," says Desmond Griffin, Glance's Chief Executive Officer, "We're providing restaurants with a complete product for their entire ordering, payment, and loyalty needs that meets the new standard for services at restaurants that consumers have come to expect."

With Glance's singular, frictionless mobile order-ahead app, any restaurant or business can offer their customers more than just an in-store experience by tapping into the popularity of pre-ordering with digital expediency and security in mind. People already have the latest technology, their mobile phone, with them, which allows Glance to provide a fantastic ordering experience at any restaurant without restaurants having to create an entire mobile application of their own. As Glance continues to scale and expand its innovative technology throughout the restaurant industry, users can continue to benefit from great rewards, automatic digital receipt tracking, and exclusive promotions.

About Glance Technologies Inc.

Glance Technologies owns and operates Glance Pay, a streamlined payment system that allows customers to pay their restaurant bill instantly with their mobile device. Glance Pay aims to revolutionize how smartphone users choose where to dine, settle their restaurant bills, pre-order, order for delivery, access their payment records and interact with their favourite restaurants.

GLANCE PAY ANNOUNCES ‘GLANCE PAY ANYWHERE’ for Mobile App Targeted at $600 Billion Dollar Market



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 12, 2017) - Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:GLNNF)(CSE:GET.CN) (FRANKFURT:GJT), is pleased to announce the launch of ‘Glance Pay Anywhere’, a new technology which enables Glance Pay merchant partners to send bills to customers anywhere, and securely receive remote payments from anywhere via the Glance Pay App. Glance Pay Anywhere can be used by virtually any merchant or service provider such as restaurants, retail stores, private and health clubs, entertainment venues, hotels, law firms, accounting firms, musicians and landlords - making the potential market for this product well north of $600 billion (CAD).

In the restaurant space, ‘Glance Pay Anywhere’ is perfect for deposit payments for large groups, payments for catering, or payments for large corporate orders – all of which are areas that Glance Pay’s restaurant partners have been requesting a solution for. Merchants can quickly and easily send bills and a payment requests via Glance Pay Anywhere. Consumers are instantly notified of the pending payment request and can confirm & pay remotely with one tap of the finger using the Glance Pay app while still earning great rewards and receiving real time digital receipts. Additionally, consumers no longer have to share their payment details with a variety of merchants in an insecure manner (such as giving payment information out during a phone call), and instead can rely on a much more secure payment environment.

While this technology will significantly improve Glance’s current offering within the $600 billion dollar restaurant industry, the technology is actually a universal payment system with far reaching applications. A wide variety of merchants will benefit from a fast, secure, low cost, anti-fraud payment technology that allows them to instantly send bills and receive payment remotely. Small-to-medium sized business owners currently struggle to deal with the high fraud and high processing rates surrounding phone-based orders. This also eases payment collection when billing for services that are provided remotely or are billed after the fact.

“We believe this new enhancement is highly disruptive and is another example of how we can leverage our existing technology to address new markets by adding unique innovations to our robust platform,” says Glance CEO Desmond Griffin, “We are very excited about the potential of this product and the early response to it. It is difficult to calculate how large the market for this product is as it has such wide ranging applications.”

In the past month Glance Pay went live in Ricky’s all Day Grill in Victoria, a franchise within a 70 location chain spread across Western and Central Canada. Encompassed within Glance’s alliances are two well-known chains, MR MIKES Steakhouse Casual and Famoso Neopolitan Pizzeria, which include 61 locations combined. With prospective meetings and current negotiations, Glance has engaged with more than 20 Canadian restaurant chains and has a sales pipeline of over 500 restaurants expressing interest and at various stages of Glance’s sales proposal process. Management estimates that the 140 restaurants signed do combined revenues of over $200,000,000.

Glance Pay’s 2017 revenue strategy and portfolio now include processing fees for mobile payment transactions, a monthly fee package, in app marketing, digital marketing solutions, customer intelligence and feedback, and social media promotions. Additionally, as a result of its multi-faceted revenue strategy, Glance has entered into reseller agreements with firms such as Global Payment Solutions (NYSE:GPN) to be able to provide services that compliment its core mobile payment offering, and leverage the key relationships built via Glance Pay.

Glance Pay Enters $5 Trillion Dollar Retail Market



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 10, 2017) - Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:GLNNF)(CSE:GET.CN) (FRANKFURT:GJT), is pleased to announce the entry of its leading edge payment and rewards system, Glance Pay, into the enormous retail market. By launching Glance Pay in Vancouver with Juice Salon, Glance has demonstrated the flexibility and universality of their payment and rewards system and the ability of the platform to be leveraged into other verticals. In addition to restaurants, the technology is applicable to virtually any retail or service payment environment, from clothing retailers, to salons, to legal offices and beyond. The similarities of the needs and payment experience between the retail environment and quick serve restaurants are clear. Just as with restaurants, consumers in a retail or service environment benefit from fast, easy, secure payments with rewards and automatic electronic receipts. Retailers similarly benefit by providing a superior payment experience to their customers while encouraging repeat business through rewards, as well as opening another communication channel with their customers.

Quickly becoming a leader in mobile payments in Canada, and soon into the US, Glance Pay is now positioned to operate within the massive North American retail market, with total retail sales in North America expected to surpass $5 trillion (US) in 2016, with this trajectory only expected to continue (sources: eMarketer 2015, Franchise Help, Statista, IBISWorld 2015). This, in combination with the over $600 billion dollar (CAD) North American restaurant industry, makes for a very large potential market for Glance Pay's product offerings.

"We are thrilled to be able to further demonstrate the power and universality of our payment and reward platform. Our users can now quickly and securely use Glance Pay while getting their morning coffee, getting ready for a big event at a salon, and having a night out on the town, all while earning great rewards," says Penny Green, President & COO. "As we continue to add retailers, restaurants, and service providers to our platform, physical wallets are quickly becoming obsolete."

Glance is excited to offer a complete mobile payment experience for any service that provides a bill payment. Unlike the varied and cumbersome experience of using a payment application for each singular business, such as the Starbucks mobile app, Glance Pay provides a fast, streamlined payment service in addition to curated restaurant discovery, automatic dining rewards, and on-going promotions. Users can now use the Glance Pay app for their everyday purchases with Glance Pay's ability to penetrate entire neighbourhoods with a singular mobile payment opportunity.

Glance Technologies Announces Expansion across Canada with Ten Restaurants signed in the past week, over 140 signed and 500 expressing Interest



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - April 4, 2017) - Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:GLNNF)(CSE:GET.CN) (FRANKFURT:GJT), is pleased to announce it has signed 10 new restaurants over the past week in several provinces, for a total of over 140 signed, and it now has 71 locations live across major cities in Canada such as Vancouver, Toronto, Edmonton and Victoria.

In the past month Glance Pay went live in numerous locations. Newly launched restaurant Ricky's all Day Grill in Victoria is a franchise within a 70 location chain spread across Western and Central Canada. In addition, within the downtown area of Canada's largest city, Glance Pay has launched some strategic and well-known restaurants, such as The Good Son and Caren's Rosedale, and in Vancouver, well known spots The Naam Restaurant, Urban Sushi and Elwood's are now live.

Glance Pay's movement into the quick-serve market has begun with the launch of Willow Café in Vancouver. Willow Café can now offer a quick payment app with an automatic rewards program, enabling it to compete with the larger coffee chains and quick-serve locations that have invested heavily in their own custom apps, like Starbucks and Tim Hortons. As sales expand to include more quick-serve locations, Glance Pay anticipates that it will provide many small and medium size locations a competitive edge by allowing them to offer the latest digital experience to their customers.

"Our fast expansion across Canada over the past few months is enabled by the ease of distributing and scaling our current payment technology," says Penny Green, Glance President & COO, "Glance Pay works well for any style of restaurant or quick-serve, regardless of location and environment."

Encompassed within Glance's alliances are two well-known chains, MR MIKES Steakhouse Casual and Famoso Neopolitan Pizzeria, which include 61 locations combined. With prospective meetings and current negotiations, Glance has engaged with more than 20 Canadian restaurant chains and has a sales pipeline of of over 500 restaurants expressing interest and at various stages of Glance's sales proposal process. Prospective chains account for 50% of Glance's prospective sales pipeline. The remaining 50% is composed of popular, award-winning and new-concept restaurants. Many of these restaurant chains have subsidiaries in the U.S. and therefore align perfectly with Glance's plan for expansion into the U.S.

Glance Announces Filing of Provisional Patent and Launch of Mobile App for Quick-Serve Restaurants



VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(March 27, 2017) - Glance Technologies Inc. (OTCQB:GLNNF)(CSE:GET.CN) (FRANKFURT:GJT), which offers Glance Pay, the trailblazing mobile payment solution for full-service restaurants, announces it has filed a provisional patent for its latest invention, the Glance Pay payment application for quick-serve and fast casual restaurants (including fast food, juice bars and cafés) and has successfully launched its quick-serve payment app at a café in Vancouver, British Columbia.

“We are very excited to be able to offer what we believe is the best mobile payment and rewards app in the quick-serve industry,” says Glance CEO Desmond Griffin, “Our app enables merchants of any size to provide a service, which we believe is superior to similar offerings from major chains such as Starbucks, without having to make large investments in technology, while also leveraging Glance’s rapidly growing consumer base.”

With this invention, a user opens the app at a till, the amount due appears in the app and the user selects the tip and clicks to pay. Management believes the Glance Pay quick-serve payment app is more convenient than the Starbucks app because Glance Pay does not require the user to pre-load a card and because Glance Pay’s payment mechanism does not require scanning of the user’s mobile device. Glance Pay offers advantages over the tap method of payment by creating a network between users and retailers, offering rewards, and providing the support of Glance’s targeted marketing designed to attract more regular customers, increase visits and purchases from regular customers and bring in new customers.

Answering the rising demand for improved expediency and efficiency for consumers at quick-service restaurants, Glance is expanding its mobile applications through vertical growth in the payment technology market, and positioning itself towards partnership opportunities with larger restaurant chains across North America. With the development of a universal quick-serve payment app, Glance is quickly establishing itself as a major player in the growing market for mobile payment technologies and providing a competitive advantage over large chain quick-serve payment applications, such as Starbucks’ mobile app.

Glance is now in talks with several reseller groups to target restaurant and quick-serve chains across Canada. Glance Pay is now live at sit down restaurants in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario and is currently planning its expansion into the United States.
