Albron Selects Equens for Biometric and Contactless Payments

Albron, a large independent caterer in the Netherlands, is to begin offering biometric and contactless payments in its restaurants in co-operation with Equens. Albron and Equens signed a contract for the service Snel en Simpel Betalen (Quick and Easy Payments).

Albron will be offering Snel en Simpel Betalen to its clients, and plans to implement the solution in as many of its restaurants as possible in the Netherlands. Guests at Albron’s restaurants will then be able to choose whether they wish to pay biometrically (using their finger) or contactless (using a near field communication (NFC) debit card). The time and technology are ripe for biometric payments – the most user-friendly payment method on the market. Biometric payments are twice as fast as paying using a conventional debit card, and highly secure thanks to identification by means of a combination of the fingerprint and the finger’s vein patterns.

Hans Jacobs, general manager of operations at Albron, said: “With Snel en Simpel Betalen, Albron is acquiring the ultimate ease of payment for its guests. For our guests, the possibility to pay biometrically means that they no longer need to bring anything with them to pay at the cash register. What’s more, it’s super-quick, which enables us to serve our guests more quickly. Equens’ many years of experience assures us reliable and scalable solutions.”
