Sodexo meal card holders can place orders at restaurants and pay directly with the phone, using mobilPay
Sodexo Romania, leader in extra-salary benefits in Romania, has signed a partnership with NETOPIA Payments to allow Gusto Pass card holders to place and pay orders at the restaurant exclusively using their mobile phones, through the mobilPay Delivery program, developed by mobilPay Wallet app. Two other mobile payment tools, Sodexo Pay and Apple Pay, are already being used by over 10% of the employees owning an extra-salary benefit card issued by Sodexo Romania.
“Experiences such as having lunch with colleagues or the meal ordered during a favourite movie are now even easier and adapted to new technologies, thanks to this collaboration with mobilPay Wallet. Thus, Sodexo becomes the first ticket issuer in Romania to activate mobile payments for food delivery platforms. We expect as many restaurants as possible to join this project,” says Sven Marinus, CEO Sodexo Pass Romania.
mobilPay Delivery is an ordering platform for restaurants and specialist shops in the country, integrated in the mobile app mobilPay Wallet, the only digital wallet in Romania for payments in all environments. With mobilPay Delivery restaurants can list their products, manage received orders and clients can pay online or in-app. The mobilPay Wallet app can be downloaded for free in Google Play or App Store and the Gusto Pass card can be easily enrolled in the app under Payment methods.
This new service is meant to supports operators in the HoReCa industry, one of the areas hardest hit by the restrictions in recent months.
With Gusto Pass card, Sodexo aims to reinvent the way customers access their meals at the restaurant or the way they shop for food. Gusto Pass payments are fast and secure and allow access to different promotions in the largest and most diverse network of restaurants and shops in the country. At this time, the digitization rate of Sodexo products has exceeded 80%.
Sodexo users have access to a network of partners with 30,000 locations, restaurants, coffee stores, fast food, gift shops, bookstores, guesthouses, hotels and travel agencies. Sodexo is the first card and voucher issuer in Romania to offer users payment systems for both Android and iOS.
