Sweden’s largest pharmacy chain has inked a deal with
Verifone to supply payment as a service solutions to Apoteket. The agreement means that Verifone has now supplied card payment solutions to all 371 pharmacies in Apoteket’s portfolio.
As a result of good planning, timely delivery and flexible installations, the implementation of around 1,500 cards terminals took two months instead of three.
“The new terminals are more user-friendly as they have a large, clear color display and big buttons, which customers expressed that they are very pleased with,” says Jonas Rörsgård, GM of Verifone, Sweden.
“We have been working with Verifone for several years and we are now renewing our collaboration with this new agreement. We chose Verifone because of the strong functionality of their terminals but also because of the good relationship we have with them. We feel that the new terminals are faster and at the same time I must say that they are better looking too. They also allow us to profile our customer loyalty programme on the display which is another big advantage,” says Jeanette Jakobsson, strategic buyer at Apoteket.
