Trees That Count is embarking on a new partnership with SwipedOn, a Kiwi startup which is transforming the way guests register with businesses. For every new customer, SwipedOn will fund a native tree through Trees That Count which will go toward a local conservation project in the Tauranga region.
The idea for SwipedOn was born out of a need to innovate and improve the visitor experience and guest safety in the multimillion superyacht industry, a working background both company founders Hadleigh Ford and Ben Scott share. As the Tauranga based business has evolved, it now provides the front desk experience for a growing number of businesses.
“Our customisable app is now being used in over 1300 cities worldwide and the company is entering an exciting period of growth” states Paul Hansen, SwipedOn's Marketing Manager. ”The team at SwipedOn are really excited to be partnering with Trees That Count, it was an initiative that just clicked with us straight away and aligned with our values.”
After obtaining his Skippers license and working around the world on super yachts, Co-Founder Ben Scott comments “I’ve seen first-hand that nothing compares to the outdoor playground of New Zealand. I have fond memories of playing in our local swimming hole in Taranaki as a child, so I am particularly passionate about reviving our waterways so the next generation of kids can enjoy the water like I did.”
Ben adds “Unpolluted rivers, lakes and seas should be a given that all Kiwis can enjoy, and we want to help restore that balance. At SwipedOn, we are committed to giving back to the environment and Trees That Count provide a fantastic platform in which to do so.”
