Worldline accompanies McDonald's in its new digital e-commerce strategy
Paris, 9 January 2014 - Worldline, Atos subsidiary in e-payment and transactional services, has been selected by McDonald's in France to accompany its new digital strategy. McDonald's has won the Favor'i 2013 "Mobile Strategy" awarded by FEVAD. Online ordering, now possible via all terminals, mobile or otherwise, is based on Worldline's Omni-commerce solution. Worldline has developed a mobile and web-based application for McDonald's in France incorporating its electronic payment solution.
Worldline has overhauled and now hosts the new McDonalds.fr website, making it a market commodity with its omni-channel, e-commerce platform: Worldline Omni-commerce. This customisable solution provides seamless integration of the physical and digital sales channels to create a unique, unified and attractive experience for all consumers and to control and benefit from converging commerce.
"The development of the mobile internet and the exponential growth rate of Smartphones have changed consumer buying behaviour. To support this new way of consuming, Worldline has built a unique, customised e-commerce solution for McDonald's to allow the brand to evolve from a relational digital approach and access real digital transactions. We are pleased to contribute to the new McDonald's digital strategy by delivering innovative services that bring added value and customisation to its customers every day", stated Gilles Grapinet, Senior Executive Vice President at Atos and Chief Executive Officer of Worldline.
"Our digital ambitions are strong to meet the challenges of our customers’ new uses and Worldline is a global player in this momentum. As a company controlling the entire transactional value chain, we have found one of our partners to expand our inter-channel commitment," stated Jean-Noël PENICHON, Director of Digital France & South Europe for McDonald's.
