LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Verifone (NYSE: PAY) announced that TGI Fridays UK, the popular American-style restaurant chain, has completed a payment system upgrade for its restaurants after renewing its contract to continue using Verifone’s Payment as a Service, which bundles payment hardware, software, gateway and support services into a single integrated solution.
FAST, SECURE ‘PAY AT TABLE’ SERVICE
More than 600 of Verifone’s NFC-capable VX 680 and VX 820 DUET payment devices have now been deployed at TGI Fridays UK’s 66 restaurants. These portable and countertop devices allow TGI Fridays UK to provide fast, easy-to-use and secure ‘pay at the table’ service, which is crucial at the busy bar and restaurant, where excellent guest service is a priority.
“We pride ourselves on giving guests the best experience possible, particularly when interacting with our team,” said Jeremy Dunderdale, Head of IT at TGI Fridays UK. “Verifone understands our business needs, and its NFC-capable terminals combined with Verifone’s all-in-one service package provides a secure solution that solves our payments challenges while enabling us to accept payments from guests right at the table.”
SUPPORTS NFC & FUTURE PAYMENT METHODS
The VX 680 and VX 820 DUET payment devices from Verifone are integrated with Verifone’s Payment as a Service solution for secure end-to-end transaction management. The devices are fully contactless/NFC-enabled for supporting new payment methods, such as Apple Pay, and others as they become available in the future. The solution also supports TGI Fridays UK gift card redemption.
PAYMENT AS A SERVICE
Verifone’s multi-channel Payment as a Service offering bundles hardware, software, gateways and support services into a single, integrated solution delivered through an infrastructure that is PCI-certified and pre-certified with major acquirers. The following is just a sample of the benefits Payment as a Service provides to merchants of all sizes and in all verticals:
- Secure payment acceptance across all sales channels
- “One stop” solution that removes payment complexity
- Reduced total cost of payment system ownership
- Seamless, secure payment acceptance and transaction management
- Client services, consulting and training, and help desk support
“We’re thrilled to continue partnering with TGI Fridays UK to deliver the payment simplicity, security and efficiency it needs,” said June Felix, president of Europe for Verifone. “By expanding its use of our Payment as a Service offering to include Verifone’s NFC-enabled terminals, TGI Fridays UK has enhanced and future-proofed its payment system, creating an even better experience for its staff and customers.”
