With the Verifone Meal Voucher Solution, cashiers can use the barcode reader to validate the code printed on the voucher. Verifone’s VX 520 countertop payment device is connected to the bar code scanner and provides immediate feedback regarding validated and non-validated vouchers, thanks to a link to the issuer’s database. Following this activity, the printed voucher can be destroyed. Megamark management has access to a web portal, where they can review a real-time report showing validated vouchers, separated by issuers, day by day for all point of sales. Invoicing is automatic and issuers receive a detailed report to provide payment.
Verifone’s Meal Voucher Solution allows Megamark to save time and money on voucher management. Storing, counting, and shipping vouchers is no longer necessary with this solution. Immediate validation is provided to store management, so there’s no risk of accepting false vouchers. Megamark installed 300 VX 520 payment devices, with integrated barcode readers, covering the Dok and Famila stores in southern Italy. Deployment was completed in May 2012, and Megamark is currently validating 150,000 meal vouchers per month.
