DRINKOTEC integrates card payment into its beverage dispensing systems

A 100% self-service integrated solution

In increasing demand for several years, the trend towards self-service has taken off again due to the current pandemic context. Thanks to a partnership with Be-Cash, a company specialising in payment solutions, DRINKOTEC is inaugurating its first 100% self-service beverage systems, including the final payment of the consumer, thus reducing any interaction with a waiter.

Restaurants, hotels and event organisers can now respond to the growing demand of their customers to be served quickly, as they appreciate the time and autonomy offered by these new technologies. All the more so as the solution makes it possible to limit contact between people and thus comply with the health measures in force.

Be-Cash and DRINKOTEC worked hand in hand to quickly come up with a reliable and secure solution. This partnership has gone through an initial development phase with the provision of the equipment. DRINKOTEC’s R&D team was able to use the resources of the myPOS developer portal to interface the payment terminals with DRINKOTEC’s beverage dispenser programme for optimum results.

“The partnership between Drinkotec and Be-Cash is going very well, there is a lot of communication and we feel that a synergy is born. […] It is by working together that we can reach new heights”.

Franck-Eric Flegbo, CEO of DRINKOTEC

Thanks to this integration, the end customer benefits from an improved user experience from start to finish, giving them significant flexibility in the way they wish to regulate their consumption. No more long queues at the corner of a bar to get served, now the customer decides when to satisfy their thirst. This approach has the double advantage of increasing the retailer’s turnover while reducing waste (thanks to the integrated technology developed by DRINKOTEC). In other words, “More value, less waste”, according to the slogan that defines DRINKOTEC’s vision.

Be-Cash equips the TRAVYS bus network

Be-Cash equips the TRAVYS bus network

Rapid implementation in a difficult context.

Major player in the mobility sector in the North of Vaud and Vallée de Joux, TRAVYS SA is a public transport company, operating a wide road and rail network. Wishing to continue to offer its customers a safe and high-quality service, despite the health crisis, the company has taken important measures within a short amount of time. In order to reduce the risks associated with the use of cash and to offer a secure means of payment, TRAVYS logically turned to the installation of payment terminals on board of its buses.

“The Be-Cash solution is very advantageous to purchase. The price of the devices is up to 10 times cheaper than other solutions. In addition, there is no need for a mobile phone subscription for the transmission of the data, as the SIM card is included with the purchase”.

Pierre-Yves Roberti, Sales & Distribution Manager

Contacted in mid-August, and within few days, Be-Cash delivered 90 myPOS Combo payment terminals. These terminals, easy to use and vibration-resistant, proved to be perfectly adapted to the situation and at an unbeatable price. Furthermore, it was crucial that TRAVYS kept full control over the data and programming of their devices, which is guaranteed on a daily basis by the access to a fully secure and configurable interface.

“The responsiveness of Be-Cash and the solutions found in the very short time were very much appreciated”.

Michaël Kottelat, Deputy Head of Finance Department

Thanks to this, the public transport company was able to remove cash payments in record time. The TRAVYS bus network thus becomes one of the first services of this type in Switzerland, to be equipped with cashless payment in their vehicles. Transport tickets can now be paid contactless with a credit card, debit card, as well as with a watch or a connected mobile phone (Apple Pay or Google Pay technology).

Comparison table: myPOS vs SumUp

Dans le but d’augmenter leurs ventes ou de réduire les factures impayées, les commerçants recherchent sans cesse des solutions d’encaissement. Les terminaux de paiement font désormais partie de l’arsenal indispensable permettant de se faire payer simplement et rapidement.

Alors que des terminaux de paiement se vendent encore CHF 2’000.- en moyenne (abonnement annuel en sus), des solutions beaucoup plus accessibles ont vu le jour ces dernières années. Deux d’entres elles sont comparées dans cet article: myPOS & SumUp

 

SumUp

SumUp s’inscrit dans la génération des « boîtiers auxiliaires ». Le SumUp Air (69.-) dépend à 100% d’un téléphone portable ou d’une tablette sur lequel tous les montants doivent être saisis. Et le SumUp 3G (129.-) est quant à lui autonome. Les fonds sont versés à une banque externe, ce qui engendre des délais de transfert d’argent (2-3 jours ouvrés selon les informations disponibles).

myPOS

myPOS propose une solution complète et professionnelle. Au niveau technologique, il s’agit de terminaux de paiement 100% autonomes et sécurisés. Nullement besoin d’un téléphone portable pour utiliser ces terminaux de paiement. De plus, chaque transaction est créditée instantanément et une carte VISA Business est offerte. Par ailleurs, chaque client myPOS bénéficie aussi d’une solution eCommerce complète, lui permettant de se faire payer sur son site internet, par SMS et par email.

myPOS propose plusieurs types de terminaux de paiement (prix de vente HT):

  • le myPOS Go avec reçu par SMS/email CHF 45.-
  • le myPOS Mini avec reçu par SMS/email CHF 129.-
  • le myPOS Combo, un modèle très apprécié, avec imprimante intégrée à CHF 299.-
  • le myPOS N5, combine un terminal de paiement et une caisse enregistreuse (simple), avec imprimante intégrée à CHF 389.-

Frais mensuels et annuels 260.- inclus: 80.- de tenue de compte annuel (compte courant entreprise UBS) + 15.-/mois données data sur abonnement de téléphone. L’installation en 5 minutes annoncée par SumUp exclut l’ouverture de compte pour les nouvelles sociétés, qui prend en moyenne 7 jours selon les banques. Source: www.ubs.com/ch/

 

Conclusion

Bien qu’en apparence semblables, myPOS et SumUp sont très différents autant en terme technique que de prix, comme le démontre le comparatif. S’ajoutent au terminal de paiement myPOS un compte bancaire gratuit (multidevises), des cartes bancaires gratuites, une carte SIM illimitée dans toute l’Europe ainsi qu’une solution d’encaissement complète sur internet, par email et SMS, permettant aux commerçants de se faire payer à distance.

SIX bought by a French group

Shortly after swallowing Aduno, SIX has sold its Payment Services unit (in charge of payment solutions) to the French group Worldline for CHF 2.75 billion.

Last November, as part of its strategic reorientation, SIX announced that it wanted to give up its credit card business.

 

A TEN YEARS COMMITMENT

The current management and over 1,300 Swiss and European employees of SIX Payment Services will be transferred to the French company. Both companies have committed to collaborate for a period of ten years. Worldline is also taking a stake in the company TWINT, in charge of the development of the eponymous payment app, for an amount of 15 to 20 million euros.

The name SIX Payment Services will remain on the market until further notice. Worldline will thus be able to “benefit from the strong and successful SIX brand in its existing markets,” the statement said.

 

A REORGANIZATION IN DEPTH

Born in 2008 from the merger of SWX Group (Swiss stock exchange), Telekurs Group (information and financial services) and SIS Group (clearing), SIX is controlled by 130 financial institutions, which also represent its main users. Credit Suisse and UBS alone hold nearly 30% of the company.

“One hundred million savings planned”
The company intends to focus on infrastructure services for its shareholders, namely securities transactions, payment transactions and financial information. SIX was planning to sell its majority stake in the card and payment terminal business, it is now done.
