Albron partners Equens for biometric and contactless payments

Quick and Easy Payments

Albron, a Dutch independent caterer, is teaming up with Equens to offer biometric and contactless payments in its restaurants (view press release). The service, called Snel en Simpel Betalen (Quick and Easy Payments), is designed to increase speed and convenience at the cash register through shorter queue time. Guests at Albron restaurants across the Netherlands can now choose to pay biometrically, i.e with their finger, or contactlessly with an NFC-enabled card. Albron claims that biometric payments are twice as fast as traditional debit card payments and highly secure due to identification by means of a combination of the fingerprint and the finger’s vein patterns.

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,” said Hans Jacobs, general manager of Operations at Albron.
