The MOL Group has switched to Switchio

In early 2000, the highly popular and commercially successful MOL Group was facing the challenge of harmonizing card payments across their vast network. Bank cards were being processed on one terminal and fleet cards on another, creating unwanted inefficiencies. The introduction of Switchio has greatly simplified electronic payment processing, as one single terminal is now able to accept a multitude of cards. And that’s just one of the many benefits offered by Switchio, an independent software platform for managing electronic payments under one flexible system.

Over the next four years, the MOL Group will update and unify its portfolio of payment terminals and centralize the processing of all electronic transactions. This will greatly simplify the processing of electronic transactions across the group’s network of 1,900 service stations. The Switchio payment switch will be delivered to the network through the Software As A Service model. 

The Ingenico Tetra hardware platform for indoor and outdoor points of sales forms an integral part of the new processing system. Switchio will support several thousand hardware terminals and process millions of electronic transactions each month. 

The Switchio Advantage

Each month the Switchio platform processes millions of payments in the transport, parking and retail sectors, lowering costs for providers and enabling faster, flexible and more economical payment options for commuters and retail customers.
