easycash Loyalty Solutions, part of Ingenico Group, announced it has provided Europe-based electronics and engineering company Siemens with a prepaid payment and contactless solution.
The new contactless solution for Siemens is offers both guests and members of staff with the ability to pay for meals at the company’s restaurants, making use of two mediums: Siemens staff cards, which have an embedded contactless chip, or guest cards.
The prepaid solution is also meant for guests and members of staff from abroad who do not have an account in Germany. Guest cards can be obtained from the terminals and card machines upon payment of a deposit. These machines are also used to top up the cards with prepaid amounts using cash, debit card or credit card payments.
Both staff and guest cards are fitted with a contactless chip, which avoid waiting times at the till, reduce the handling and transportation of cash, increase hygiene and save staff time, and that money handling is reduced to a minimum.
