UAE-based leading digital payment solutions provider Network International has entered into a strategic partnership with Saudi Arabia-based food and beverage (F&B) and retail technology startup, Foodics in order to strengthen F&B payments in the Emirates.
Through this partnership, SMEs in the UAE’s F&B sector will get access to Foodics’ ECR (electronic cash register) and its software platform offering a range of value-added services (VAS) with fully integrated Network International payment terminals, ensuring fast, secure, and seamless customer experiences.
The integrated payments solution through Network’s POS platform will eliminate manual entry errors at the merchant outlet while improving operational efficiencies.
This partnership will particularly benefit thousands of F&B SME owners in the UAE who manage cafes, fast food outlets, food trucks, bakeries, restaurants, and so on.
“We are honored to partner with Network International to serve the evolving needs of the F&B industry. We have gone beyond payments by providing F&B merchants with a full suite of restaurant management products and financial technology to help them elevate their operations and provide their customers with the best experience possible. Having successfully processed over 6 billion orders, our one-stop restaurant management solution not only eases operational efficiency but also offers customers a hassle-free payment experience at any of their favorite F&B outlets.”
Commenting on the partnership, Mr. Andrew Key, Group Managing Director – Acquiring at Network International said that, “We are delighted to partner with Foodics to serve the UAE’s thriving F&B SMEs. At Network, we are committed to bringing value-added services and fully integrated payment acceptance solutions to our merchant partners.”
“This offering will reduce operational costs for merchants, improve the checkout experience, and provide access to Foodics’ VAS services through its software and hardware platform. We’ll be working closely with Foodics to bring these solutions to our fast-growing F&B merchant base. The UAE’s booming tourism industry is fuelling the growth of the country’s F&B sector, and we are happy to facilitate this journey through these innovative solutions,” Mr. Key added.
