La Défense, Paris, France - Worldline omnichannel payment solutions

Easy integration of payment devices into the sales process is part of a smooth and efficient customer journey in all businesses. This is crucial for Subway®, as a large Franchise organisation with a huge base of franchise owners. Worldline is the only payment technology provider in Europe that was able to offer Subway® a fully future-proof payment infrastructure based on the YOMANI terminal. An entirely new level of flexibility is enabled by implementing the new NEXO retailer protocol that facilitates the connection between the card payment infrastructure and the retail POS system.

Worldline has been awarded a 3-year contract including POS and online acceptance. In several European countries, Worldline supports the Subway® brand with its comprehensive knowledge around the commercial agreement and the technical deployment of such projects in the Franchise environment.

Subway® and its franchise owners will benefit from Worldline’s commitment to omnichannel solutions when it comes to management information: a consolidated reporting of all payment flows, regardless of their origin, provides valuable insight and decision support at all levels. Through its intuitive onboarding portal, Worldline enables franchise owners to have the payments functionality for their business up and running in no time. Additional features include the optional DCC (Dynamic Currency Conversion) in tourist or multi-currency locations as well as POS-advertising capabilities.
