Leading by example, Darren and his team aim to break the traditional stigma of the plumbing industry and find resources that provide a better experience for his clients. In a plumbing emergency, stress is at an all time high and many people don’t have cash on hand. With mobile payments, service oriented businesses, like Darren’s, can accept payments on the spot so clients have one less thing to think about.

“We make dozens of service calls daily and all our customers are intrigued when we pull out our iPads to accept credit card payments… it definitely becomes a point of conversation,” says Darren. “To quote Howard Hughes, ‘It’s the way of the future.’”
