Hotelleriesuisse will continue to rely on Concardis for its payments
Zürich/Eschborn, 19th July 2016. Concardis is to remain the preferred partner of the Swiss hotel association. Hotelleriesuisse renewed the cooperation agreement last Friday and has agreed to expand the scope of its partnership with the payment services provider. For a further three years from 2017 members of the association will therefore benefit from exclusive conditions, an attractive portfolio of solutions and the experience of Concardis: cashless and mobile payments, integrated cash till solutions, e-commerce interfaces and complete billing solutions will be on offer for all members of Hotelleriesuisse at reduced rates and special terms. When Apple Pay is launched in Switzerland in July 2016, Concardis will also enable all members to accept innovative payments via iPhone or Apple Watch.
‘We are very pleased by this vote of confidence,’ said Pietro Hagemann, CSO of Concardis. ‘It shows us that the partnership is working well for both sides. As a long-established preferred partner of Hotelleriesuisse, we are very familiar with the demands of the Swiss hoteliers and restaurateurs and so can offer tailor-made solutions for their payment needs.’
The range of products on offer from the full-service payment provider is correspondingly broad. The small Concardis Optipay mobile terminal makes it easy to accept mobile or cashless payments in outdoor seating areas. With Orderbird, Concardis offers a flexible iPad point-of-sale solution, especially for restaurants and cafes. Hoteliers benefit particularly from the Concardis Payment Gateway integrated cash till solution, which joins seamlessly with existing management systems.
Thomas Allemann, a member of the Executive Management of Hotelleriesuisse, welcomes the continued partnership: ‘Our members need innovative payment solutions at fair prices and an experienced business partner. The integration of face-to-face and e-commerce solutions, known as multichannel booking and billing, is becoming ever more important and it is precisely here that Concardis sets the tone. That is why they remain our partner of choice for payments.’
The hotel association has been working with the payment services provider from Eschborn for eight years. Concardis has had a subsidiary in Zurich, Concardis Schweiz AG, since 2006. As a preferred partner, the company not only offers the around 3,000 members of Hotelleriesuisse essential services, advisory expertise and high-quality products, but also maintains close contacts to the individual hoteliers by means of round-table meetings and congresses. Their requirements are behind the ongoing developments in Concardis payment solutions.
