restaurant Michel Reybier Customer Story

Serving up digital innovation.

Michel Reybier Hospitality is an exclusive hotel chain with 15 properties in France, Great Britain and Switzerland focused on offering the best customer experience to its guests. The team at Michel Reybier was looking for a payment provider to support them with an end-to-end hospitality-tailored solution that could address the specific needs of day-to-day hotel activity, incorporating digitalisation in all aspects of the exclusive services it provides to customers.

Michel Reybier Hospitality was eager, in particular, to provide the best guest experience possible in terms of speed and convenience with regard to its restaurants. The goal was to innovate with digitalisation in order to optimise and improve the guest experience, since many consumers today prefer not to call a restaurant to book a table or to wait for the bill at the end of a meal.

“Excellence, simplicity, authenticity, embodies the DNA of Michel Reybier Hospitality brand and the hallmark of all our establishments. With the pandemic COVID-19 situation we have taken a step forward in the digitalization of the customer experience at all the customer touchpoints. For our restaurants, open to local guests, we have developed a MRH app. Our aim was to automate, accelerate the customer experience from booking to payment to ensure the security and the safety of our guests. Thanks to Open Web Technology and to Worldline payment solutions that supported us during this app development. Today the high-tech approach, which made it possible to lighten our employees from certain tasks, was accompanied by a high-touch approach where our staff were able to concentrate on more value-creating activities for our guests.”

A tasty solution.

Michel Reybier Hospitality will use Open Web Technology’s exclusive payment application integrated with Worldline payment and acquiring services at its restaurants. The app is currently in a pilot phase at several locations in Zurich and Geneva and enables users to view the menu, place an order and pay the bill without waiting by scanning a QR code. The app accepts alternative payment methods, such as Apple Pay and Google Pay, and offers bill-splitting options for guests using different payment methods to ensure a seamless and secure payment experience in line with the exclusive hospitality associated with Michel Reybier.


Worldline covers both card-present and eCommerce payment use cases as well as acquiring services and Dynamic Currency Conversion (DCC) for Michel Reybier. The advanced payment technology solution is designed to offer a range of payment capabilities to meet all hotel payment needs and is seamlessly integrated into Michel Reybier’s payment management system.

“Digitalising the customer experience is one of the key challenges faced by the hospitality industry. Michel Reybier has taken a step forward in digitalising the customer experience in its hotel restaurants, offering a seamless and high-quality experience while differentiating itself among competitors. Thanks to Worldline payment solutions, Michel Reybier can offer an end-to-end experience, from table booking to payment, to its customers.”
