24th October 2018—FRANMAC, the Franchise Management Advisory Council for all Taco Bell franchises, held its annual conference in Las Vegas this September. During the event attendees had a variety of opportunities to donate to the Taco Bell Foundation, formed to support educational career aspirations for young adults across the United States.
iGen Technologies, Inc. is a CA corporation based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Established in 2002, it has more than 75 employees specializing in software development and graphic design services. Utilising Spire Payments’ application programming interface (inSPire), iGen developed the smart device hosted mobile payment application in a matter of weeks.
Enrique Balmaseda, President of iGen Technologies says of the project, “It has been a pleasure to work with FRANMAC and the Taco Bell Foundation over the past three years and be part of this amazing cause. Spire Payments has made this possible with the provision of development tools and equipment to deliver a reliable and secure solution to take payments during these events. Our development staff required minimal training and Spire’s technical support ensured any issues were resolved extremely rapidly. Moving forward iGen and Spire Payments aim to collaborate on more projects to leverage both companies expertise in the Americas.”
TK Cheung, President of Spire Payments, adds, “Spire Payments is proud to work with charitable organisations and help raise funds for extremely worthwhile causes. In this case iGen invested the time in developing the solution, whereas Spire provided the SPm2s, application programming interface, and technical support. The ability to take real-time payments at such events is becoming more important as charities are increasingly aware of the costs and time involved in the collection of donations post-event. I would also like to add FRANMAC and Taco Bell Foundation should be recognised and congratulated for their continued efforts to help inspire young adults.”
