In the fast-paced world of hospitality, businesses need payment solutions that can keep up with their growth and changing needs. Press Up Hospitality Group, a rapidly expanding company with over 50 venues, found the perfect partner in BOIPA.
We met up with Luke Brock, Operations Manager at Press Up to explore how BOIPA helped Press Up to streamline their payment processes, overcome challenges, achieve significant savings and provide management oversight across the business.
Cash transactions are twice as expensive as card transactions for the hospitality sector
The value of an average card transaction (€28.25) almost three times more than the average cash purchase (€11.34) for the hospitality industry
Increasing the volume of card payments to 80% of accepted payments can play a crucial part in lowering admin costs, saving a business as much as €6,000 annually
“The terminals work a lot faster than our previous ones and lots of customers are using the contactless transactions which saves us huge time in the bar area of the restaurant and is great for our customers. We are also seeing real savings in our monthly bills. All in all I couldn’t be happier and am delighted we made the change over to BOI Payment Acceptance.”
– Jackie Reddin
” The savings in fees enabled us to expand our card facilities and offer more payment points for our customers. The team at BOI Payment Acceptance were professional at all times and ensured that the account set up, delivery and operations of the terminals all worked smoothly and were always at hand if there were any questions.”
– Alan Donohue
“Our conversion to Contactless was a big decision but around 30% of our customers now insist on card payments. We have seen sales increase hugely. Every week, our figures show more and more conversion from cash into contactless and card payments and our preference now is to deal less and less with cash.”
