Today is an exciting day at Swipely. Staying true to our roots, we’re moving to 10 Dorrance Street, in the heart of Providence’s downtown Kennedy Plaza neighborhood. There’s no place we’d rather call home as we grow to help thousands of restaurants and retailers better understand customers and grow sales.
On June 1st, 2012, Swipely launched our platform to help local merchants accept payments, understand customers and grow sales. It’s been an exciting ride ever since, and we’re proud to have been named to Forbes’ 100 list of “America’s Most Promising Companies” and one of the “Best Places to Work in Rhode Island” by Providence Business News this year.
