“Worldline and Elcom offer e-payment solutions to Slovak merchants”

Bratislava 21 October 2013

Partnership spices up Slovak payment market

Worldline, Atos subsidiary in e-payment services, and Elcom, developer and producer of electronic cash registers solutions signed a reseller-partnership that will bring innovative payment solutions closer to Slovak merchants. With this reseller-partnership, Worldline's innovative payment products will complete Elcom's cash register offer in the Slovakian market and both parties can offer a complete payment offering to Slovakian merchants.


The electronic payment market in Slovakia has big potential. Merchant acceptance in Slovakia has grown in recent years but still remains at a relatively low level of penetration. This partnership aims to increase that growth significantly by reaching 40,000 merchants. Research shows that by accepting electronic payment, sales increases by 13%. Today's partnership between Worldline and Elcom ensures Slovak merchants to offer the best electronic payment to their customers.


Worldline has a unique portfolio of products for the Slovak merchants. Pascal Libert, Worldline General Manager in Slovakia explains: “The vast experience and references we have in electronic payments across Europe confirms our engagement to take care of the business of our clients. With a single-point of contact, continued innovations that stimulate turnover, and an end-to-end offering in payment services, we believe that our service makes the difference. In order to take a big step forward in offering the Worldline solutions to the Slovakian market, we were looking for reliable partners with a broad client base in Slovakia, which has resulted in a partnership with Elcom, a research, development, and manufacturing company in the field of electronics. “


Elcom provides high-quality cash registers solutions for the any field of small, mid-sized and large businesses and HoReCa, and is producer of industrial all-in-one computers, durable tablets and devices for capturing of biometric signature and e-document management.


“The proof of the high-quality level of our products and solutions is appreciated by our customers in more than 50 countries.” says Peter Pitoňák, Head of Sales Department at Elcom. “ We are delighted to join forces with Worldline to strengthen our services portfolio with their innovations and expertise in e-payment services”.
