Verifone delivers payment solution to Swedish pharmacy chain, Apoteket

Verifone, the leading provider of payment solutions in Sweden, has signed an agreement with Sweden’s largest pharmacy chain, Apoteket AB. The agreement will supply payment as a service solutions to Apoteket. October 01, 2015 Stockholm

As a result  Apoteket has safer, more user-friendly and updated POS terminals throughout Sweden. After careful consideration of the terminals available on the Swedish market, Apoteket  chose to sign a new contract with their established  payment solution provider Verifone. The agreement means that Verifone has now supplied card payment solutions to all 371 pharmacies in Apoteket AB's portfolio. As a result of good planning, timely delivery and flexible installations, the implementation of around 1,500 cards terminals took two months instead of three.

“The new terminals are more user-friendly as they have a large, clear color display and big buttons, which customers expressed that they are very pleased with,” says Jonas Rörsgård, GM of Verifone, Sweden.

“We have been working with Verifone for several years and we are now renewing our collaboration with this new agreement. We chose Verifone because of the strong functionality of their terminals  but also because of the good relationship we have with them. We feel that the new terminals are faster and at the same time I must say that they are better looking too. They also allow us to profile our customer loyalty programme on the display which is another big advantage,” says Jeanette Jakobsson, strategic buyer at Apoteket AB.
