Rikslunchen Pass to integrate with SEQR mobile wallet

June 10, 2014

Sodexo, Sweden's largest supplier of lunch cards, has signed an agreement which will integrate SEQR’s payment solution in its app Rikslunchen Pass. This means 80 000 Rikslunchen Pass users can pay with their mobile. The agreement applies initially to the Swedish market, with the mutual goal of integrating SEQR on Sodexo’s international markets in phase two. - The agreement with Sodexo enables us to reach a large number of new users and is another step to further increase the pace of expansion with a focus on the restaurant industry. For the 80 000 Rikslunchen Pass users in Sweden this means that the card moves into the mobile and is replaced by an account in the SEQR-app, says Seamless CEO Peter Fredell. - In only a few years we have changed the market for subsidized lunches so that it today mainly consists of card payments. Therefore it is with pleasure we take the next step in the development and collaborate with the largest player for mobile payments to create even more customer benefits. The functionality is requested by our customers and Seamless technology gives us the possibility to provide a smooth and easy solution, says Peter Lansfjord, CEO Sodexo Benefits & Rewards Services.
