Payment solutions provider in the Middle East and Africa, Network International, has strengthened its product proposition to the hospitality sector following a partnership with 3C Payment, a global provider of payment solutions.
Network International claims to be the first in the region to offer hospitality merchants access to an integrated F&B solution on the 3C Integra terminal range.
This offering is geared to meet the specific needs of table service restaurant outlets, enabling them to recall a list of open bills by table or waiter ID. To help with large group billing, waiting staff can recall and print itemised table bills from the POS device in addition to offering split bill payments via cash or card payment, without affecting the till functionality or tip handling.
Network International head of product & innovation Paul Clarke said in a statement: "One of the strongest and most vibrant sectors in the UAE’s domestic market, the food and beverage industry is rapidly adapting to the digital age in which customers expect faster and seamless ways to pay. Our new solution enables customers at F&B outlets to pay faster than ever before and make it more convenient to split bills, leave tips and simply enjoy their dining experience."
This new solution incorporates PCI 3.x Worldline devices and 3C Payment’s Integra Pay@Table terminal solution, integrated with Oracle Hospitality Simphony, to create a flexible integrated payments solution with specialist functionality and reporting across multiple channels.
The terminal solution is PCI (payment card industry) Point-to-Point-Encryption (P2PE) validated, providing a secure and effective solution to protect cardholder data. The solution’s universal payment gateway is able to process transactions and tokenise the data enhancing PCI security.
3C Payment director of product Paul Musgrave added: "We are delighted to further strengthen our payment proposition with Network International through the addition of our 3C integrated Pay@Table product. Hospitality merchants in the Middle East will benefit greatly from the table management features of our portable solution that drive efficiencies for outlets in addition to enhancing the dining experience for guests."
