More Choice for New Zealand Retailers

MEDIA RELEASE For immediate release 17th November 2009


More Choice for New Zealand Retailers

The New Zealand Retailers Association is pleased to announce the addition of Wellington based company Viaduct as a National Business partner for the Association.

New Zealand Retailers Association Chief Executive John Albertson says that Viaduct will take the place of ProvencoCadmus as the alternative payments provider for members. A key factor in this decision is to allow maximum choice for Association members in terms of their terminal selection.

“With Hypercom.s recent return to the New Zealand market, it highlighted the need to partner with a provider that can deliver all the terminal options to our members. With Hypercom also being the most popular terminal amongst or members, we had to ensure that the needs of our members are being met.”

There are also a range of additional enhancements that Viaduct can provide, such as „outage free. eftpos which allows retailers to continue transacting even if the network or the phone lines go down, WiFi eftpos and eftpos without contracts.

Mr Albertson says there are many changes occurring in the marketplace and retailers need to ensure that their provider allows them to keep up with these changes. “With the ongoing upgrades in the eftpos market we encourage our members to lease their eftpos equipment and Viaduct provides the choices necessary for this. They do not use a third party finance company so retailers deal directly with them. Viaduct also has nationwide coverage providing the service and support needed to keep retailers in business.”

Mark Unwin Director of Viaduct says the company is looking forward to working with the New Zealand Retailers Association and their membership. “We are a customer-focussed company – even our best price guarantee has a retail focus. The exciting changes in technology mean that eftpos is no longer confined by phone lines or power cables, and neither is the New Zealand retailer,” says Mr Unwin.
