There are more than 3 million debit cards in Ireland and 2.5 million credit cards. Electronic payments are increasing whilst cheque and cash payments are reducing especially in petrol stations, which have above average card usage among consumer sectors. It is essential that petrol station owners and managers have a payment process in place to accept these card payments without taking up more of their customers’ valuable time.
QuestZones IP Transact Gold solution is a managed broadband solution for petrol stations. By combining your telecoms and data usage with one provider – QuestZones – you can save your customers valuable time while processing card payments as well as making significant savings for your company.
QuestZones IP Transact Gold provides an automatic and seamless back-up broadband in the event of internet failure, such that neither customers nor staff will even be aware of the disconnection.
Some other significant benefits to implementing an integrated solution from QuestZones are:
- Card processing reduced from at least 45 seconds to less than 10
- Reduced queues and therefore satisfied customers
- One number to call should anything go wrong with 24 x 7 x 365 support
- Less cash on premises reduces chance of theft
QuestZones also provides its solutions to Applegreen – petrol, garages and food. Applegreen has over 60 sites and includes the new 6 Irish motorway service stations. QuestZones also partners with leading till providers including CBE, Leaders and Merit Solutions.
"If a customer fills their tank expecting to pay with debit and can't then it’s not just a lost sale, that’s an outright loss. It’s like we approved a drive-off."
