Ingenico has announced that food retailer HoneyBaked has selected its Telium payment solution for a nationwide rollout across its 300+ corporate and franchise locations.
The POS upgrade is an integral part of HoneyBaked’s efforts to remain focused on customer service by finding ways to enhance consumer in‐store convenience and shopping experience. With this upgrade, HoneyBaked will modernise its in‐store payment acceptance to provide consumers with secure payment options, including PIN debit and EMV chip card transactions.
“HoneyBaked is a company known for great products, service and heart,” said Bill Bolton, vice president, IT of HoneyBaked. “Providing a secure choice of payment will enhance consumer comfort with our brand and is another way to deliver our vision and tradition of exceeding customer standards. Ingenico’s payment technology and expertise along with Voltage’s P2P encryption solution gives our customers peace of mind while providing convenience when shopping in our stores.”
HoneyBaked is already in the process of deploying Ingenico’s devices in select stores with plans to complete the full rollout over the next coming months.
“Our payment solutions are diverse and flexible to fit any retail environment. They can enhance the value proposition of any brand, even a true American household name such as HoneyBaked,” commented Scott Tubbs, Senior Vice President of Retail, Ingenico, North America. “Ingenico’s innovative offerings, secure technology, and global payments expertise, create unique opportunities for us to partner with our retail clients and become their trusted payments advisers. This particular customer engagement once again confirms the successful deployment of our strategy in the U.S. on the brink of the EMV rollout in the States.”
