MUNICH, August 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
- Mobile card acceptance via credit card and direct debit at the point of sale
Berlin-based orderbird AG is using Wirecard AG's new white label program comprising a card reader, associated card acceptance including wallet application and open interfaces for developers. The product roll-out is scheduled for August 2012.
orderbird develops and sells iOS-based cashdesk and settlement systems for the gastronomy sector using iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Wirecard's Card Reader solution allows orderbird's current total of more than 400 customers to not only receive orders and make settlement with immediate effect, but also to process the card-based payment process using credit cards and direct debits.
Jakob Schreyer, orderbird's CEO explained: "We wanted to have a market-ready iOS-capable solution straight away for our innovative cashdesk concept - that is why we scoured the market from top to bottom. Wirecard convinced us immediately with its end-to-end, fully integrated concept - right through to the design of the reader."
In the orderbird solution, a mobile chip card reader is linked to the iOS device and the payment process is launched. End-to-end encryption ensures secure payment transfer. The end customer confirms payment via a touchscreen signature on the iPad or iPhone.
"The Wirecard Software Development Kit is tailored to the orderbird cashdesk app. Our white-label solution can be customized for the respective industry," commented Anne C. Signorino Gelo, Wirecard Retail Services GmbH's Managing Director, and continued: "We provide our customers rapid access to the market, a flexible product environment and tried-and-trusted processes, including POS acquiring."
Simple, fast and clever - orderbird is the leading provider of mobile cashdesk systems (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch) for bars, discotheques and restaurants. The mobile cashdesk system takes over all of the functions of traditional gastronomy systems and makes working easier:. For example, orders are sent straight to the kitchen via a WiFi link. The app's content can be tailored to the customer's individual needs and ideas at any time. Compared to traditional cashdesk systems, costs of acquiring an orderbird system are up to 80% lower. Soon, card payments will also be possible, and there will be a guest app, which allows food to be ordered in comfort in advance. orderbird was founded in 2011 by Jakob Schreyer, Patrick Brienen and Bastian Schmidtke with the aim of offering a mobile cashdesk solution that should be low-priced and intuitive, and which meets the needs of state-of-the-art gastronomy. More than 300 companies are already working with orderbird POS. At present, 30 employees in Berlin and Munich work for the fast-growing company.
