Profipay will be installed in more than ten stadiums, arenas and event locations in Germany before the start of the season. A new payment era was first ushered in at Nuremberg's Max Morlock Stadium. With Sparkasse Nuremberg and Mastercard, a total of three strong partners have joined forces, representing a viable and innovative product.
In the next few weeks, the new payment technology will be set up in nine more stadiums. "Part of the success is our value-based way of working," emphasizes René Grzega, Managing Director of Tonfunk Systementwicklung und Service GmbH. Innovation, quality and reliability are the main reasons for stadium operators to choose the Tonfunk Group, he adds.
In Nuremberg, 135 profipay cash registers and another 50 mobile units will be installed. They will ensure that the up to 50,000 spectators can pay quickly and, if desired, without cash. "Whether at the kiosk or in the fan shop, with a giro or credit card, by smartphone or even with cash - everyone can pay as they wish," explains Grzega.
Due to the primarily cashless processing, waiting times are greatly reduced and more visitors can be served, especially during the short half-time break. For the stadium operators, of course, the model is also worthwhile. "More sales in less time are just as advantageous as the easier handling of electronic payment transactions and the reduced susceptibility to errors in billing," says the profipay boss, describing the benefits.
After the basic installation of profipay, further functions will follow. With Pre-Order, it will soon be possible to order and pay for a break snack from your seat. During the break, the snack will only have to be picked up. This will eliminate long waits at the kiosk during the half-time break.
After a short installation phase and quick training of the users on site, profipay runs reliably from the first use. Profipay has already convinced numerous stadium operators with its innovation, quality and reliability. That is why the decision was made to introduce this payment concept in Nuremberg as well.
Thanks to profipay, pre-ordering via mobile sales units with card acceptance will be possible in the future. In-app sales also offer new payment and marketing concepts that provide enormous added value for fans and operators.
The profipay solution offers a holistic digitalized approach. Specially developed cash registers produced by the TONFUNK Group with integrated NFC for contactless data transfer, barcode imager and, if desired, with an integrated terminal. Profipay not only looks good, the cash registers can be optimally used especially in small sales units due to the small space requirement. A holistic system made in Germany that scores with durability and reliability.
