Tikkit recently teamed up with Generocksity’s London, Ontario branch to host an event Thursday, March 22nd. Called “Disco Fever”, the event helped raise money for Habitat for Humanity in Ontario, Canada. Several hundred people, including a large number of students from Western University were in attendance. According to the London team’s co-president Devon Bingham, the event was a great success. As a first-time host on Tikkit, Devon was thrilled with how easy the admission process was. Hear his thoughts below.
“The overall Tikkit experience was really good and the whole team found it as a great way to scan people in super quickly. It really helped add to our customers experience.”
