Wirecard, a specialist in digital financial technology, and Sodexo, a market leader in control solutions for public authorities, have joined forces to bring digital transformation to communities across Germany.
Through the use of an electronic voucher, Wirecard and Sodexo are meeting the needs of the authorities for more targeted solutions. The new payment solution significantly simplifies the shopping experience for both service providers and users.
It has been developed specifically for all service providers in SGB II and XII (Sozialgesetzbuch; social security statute book) as well as state institutions and legal systems. It reduces the complex processes involved in providing services.
With their joint payment solution, Wirecard and Sodexo are driving the digitalisation of payment processes even further forward and are laying down a milestone in the digital transformation of management solutions.
Christian Reindl, executive vice president, sales consumer goods at Wirecard, stated: “As a leading international driver of payment process digitalisation, we strive to leverage our expertise to the benefit of other companies as well as the public sector. We are proud to expand our collaboration, which will now be gradually rolled out nationwide across Germany.”
With the cash register integration specially designed by Wirecard and Sodexo, the procedure represents an enormous process simplification for retailers. Handelsverband Deutschland (HDE), a leading organisation within Germany’s retail trade, supports the digitisation of social vouchers through open systems that will integrate large retailers.
Ulrike Zädow, CEO of Sodexo, added: “Modern digital payment solutions simplify state services. By cooperating with Wirecard, we strengthen our profile as the leading service provider for efficient control systems, reducing state transaction costs and provide a valuable contribution to easing the burden of management.”
