Eschborn, 20 October 2016. Concardis GmbH, one of Europe’s leading payment service providers, has signed a partnership agreement with the Swiss Retail Federation, a trade association for medium and large retailers in Switzerland. In future Concardis will support its members as the preferred partner for everything to do with payments.
‘The proliferation and digitalisation of sales channels is a challenge for the retail sector. We are delighted to be able to advise and support the members of the Swiss Retail Federation with our extensive experience, our understanding of their business and our total retail solutions,’ said Norbert Galig, manager of Concardis Schweiz AG.
As a business partner, Concardis will offer the retailers payment terminals for the point of sale – in both fixed and mobile versions. All the current models are able to accept payments with Apple Pay. Concardis supports the retailers’ multichannel strategies with specific solutions for e-commerce and m-commerce and is planning to bring additional payment solutions and methods to market in 2017. Whether online or offline, the partnership means that the federation’s members benefit from attractive terms on the entire Concardis product and service portfolio and professional advice.
For Dagmar Jenni, managing director of the Swiss Retail Federation, the advantages are clear. ‘In Concardis we have a very experienced partner who will advise our members on all aspects regarding payments – and that on good terms. It was important for us to choose a preferred partner who knows the Swiss market well, can also support our members with the digitalisation of their processes and has an international presence.’
