Brulines, the beer flow monitoring company, has secured a contract to provide contactless payment technology at vending machines in the UK offices of Visa Europe, via its subsidiary Vianet. Vianet’s Touch & Pay system lets customers pay for items by presenting their bank card or mobile phone to a reader at the front of the vending machine. The new contract relates to Visa Europe’s headquarters in Paddington, London, and offices in Reading and Basingstoke. A dozen machines have already been installed at the three sites under a trial, with more than 10,000 transactions processed in six months, Brulines said. James Dickson, chief executive of Brulines, said: “Contactless payment is extremely well-suited to the vending sector given the transaction value of purchases, and we are excited that Vianet is at the forefront of this sector. The pilot with Visa has shown very encouraging results, and we look forward to a longstanding partnership with them.” The cost of the deal has not been disclosed.
