A web app that uses google vision to parse images of expense reports and set up autopay with clover based off that data. It then uses flowroute's sms to control the settings of the autopay through text commands, such as cancel and confirm.

Clover Cast

Clover Cast makes order-ahead shopping easy. We empower the already large network of Clover merchants and give them access to Clover Cast's OrderCast system. By aggregating inventory listings across all participating Clover merchants, customers get a one-stop shop for a variety of items, even if a shopping list needs to be fulfilled from multiple shops. They can order-ahead on their mobile device and Clover Cast will federate payments to the individual merchants.

Users will love this when going out to eat because we send you notifications with coupons or special of the day when you are on your way to that location.
