BALLERUD GOLF CLUB CASE STUDY
Ballerud Golf Club started in 1992 with 200 members and today has a significantly larger and loyal team of members. They have installed two NAYAX payment terminals at their golf ball dispensing machines. Below is a recount of their experience with the NAYAX payment solution and support over the last four years.
THE CHALLENGES BEFORE 2013
“Large amounts of coins, a lot of currency exchanges and large cash withdrawals were a significant part of everyday life before the installation of NAYAX payment terminal,” says Ballerud Golf, Thomas Faale, General Manager. “Our machines accepted coins only and we counted coins by weight. On a good day, 10,000 kroner is a lot of coins! For the customer, it took a long time to exchange their bills to coins. People needed to stand in line to switch to coins, they would glance at the clock and decide that the queue was too time consuming. As a result, they left home. In addition, there were cases of vandalism and burglary attempts on the machines.”
Ballerud Golf decided to test the NAYAX payment terminal at one of its two golf ball dispensing machines in 2013. This was so successful that the following year, Ballerud installed a second payment terminal. The two machines with payment terminals reduced vulnerability in those cases of technical challenges, and serviced customers more efficiently during hectic periods.
“After NAYAX was taken into use, we have noted that sales have increased. People today are more comfortable with using credit cards than before. We are clearly.
earning more after we installed the payment terminals. The NAYAX payment terminal costs something in terms of commission and operating expenses, but the revenue increase makes it pay,” says Faale.
“In 2013, card usage was around 30 percent of sales. So far this year (2017), card use amounts to 80 percent, the rest is divided between discounted vouchers and cash sales. In 2013, the transaction time was extremely fast. Various security requirements from card companies have meant that the transaction itself has slowed somewhat over the years,” explains Faale. Updating firmware on the payment terminals occurs at night so that this does not lead to lost sales because the vending machines are available to the golf customers all the time.
PURE GYM CASE STUDY
Pure Gym wanted to explore the possibility of offering different payment methods.
The story of Pure Gym in the UK illustrates the difference the Nayax cashless payment solutions can make to operators and consumers. Take for example the partnership and implementation with Pure Gym, as it is discussed in a case study on the project implementation:
“When you go to the gym you don’t want to be carrying lots of cash around with you,” GVS National Account Manager Pat Gibney points out.
“Apart from the question of security, these days we have come to depend on the convenience of cards.”
Within a month all the new machines were supplied and installed and the existing 100 machines were retrofitted with cashless payment capability.
Lewis Zimbler, Operations Director at Nayax UK, worked closely with Pure Gym and GVS to deliver the solution:
“The project was a great success. Our Nayax Cashless Payment solution is designed to combine financial services with the latest technology so that vendors can benefit from cashless payments without being concerned with merchant accounts or data security.
Not only does the cashless system make life easier for Pure Gym customers who have forgotten to bring cash, but it also facilitates more sales because their spend is not limited by the amount they have in their pocket. As a result, since the introducing the cashless payment system, there has been a significant uplift in sales.” Pure Gym was delighted with the solution and continues to roll it out with every new gym they open.
