Montreal and Milford, CT—Feb. 23, 2021—Worldline, the European market leader in payment and transaction services, and Amadis today announced the completion of its multi-country payment solution rollout with Subway® restaurants. Together WorldLine, Amadis and Subway executed a payments solution to streamline its global payment infrastructure and provide secure, cost-effective and optimized operations for Franchisees.
Subway Franchisees independently own and operate more than 40,000 restaurants in over 100 countries. The use of this new universal payment software makes it easier to operate Subway’s previous international payment infrastructure and provides restaurant owners with a consistent and reliable payment acceptance user-experience. The new framework also allows for a faster deployment of new payment solutions on a global scale, with a projected reduction of testing and certification costs.
“Amadis provided us with clear, proven expertise, ensuring the successful rollout of this global payments project with WorldLine,” said Benoit Lamoureux, payment product owner of Subway® restaurants. “With its unique global perspective in payment software editing, development and standards, along with its reputation for elite global payment deployments, Amadis provided us with assurance that we were addressing key technical issues while implementing this mission-critical initiative.”
“We are pleased to be Subway’s preferred provider of Omni-Channel Payment Solutions,” said Guillaume Pascal, Head of GSV Go To Market / Merchant Services. “WorldLine’s solutions include point of sale system (POS) and e-commerce acceptance as well as payment terminals operating with the nexo retail protocol. An entirely new level of flexibility and efficiency is enabled by implementing the nexo retail protocol and universal payment software that facilitates the connection between card payment infrastructure and the retail POS system.”
“As an expert in global payment standards as well as payment software development, we understand the myriad of system integration and operational issues involved to make large scale, international payment deployments a success,” said Emmanuel Haydont, CEO and co-founder of Amadis. “Global merchants, such as Subway, can realize tremendous efficiencies and cost-savings through global standards and a unified payment framework, while enabling a new level of innovation.”
