Digital tipping platform Grazzy has been named a preferred technology provider by Hyatt Hotels Corp. With this status, more than 700 Hyatt locations can use Grazzy’s digital tipping solutions to help hotel operations, bar and restaurant staff earn more per hour and get instant access to earned tips.

Grazzy also developed interactive enterprise reporting that helps operators understand team and property performance through their portfolio. These reporting tools help groups accelerate digital tipping, for example, by facilitating the sharing of strategies that help one property earn more than the others.

“Grazzy is helping service workers recapture tips that cashless innovations have for years made fewer and farther between,” Grazzy Founder and CEO Russell Lemmer said in a statement. “In doing so, we help hotels, bars, restaurants and other service businesses recruit and retain great talent in a competitive labor market.”
