Hooty's Secures its Card Payments with YESpay

London, Uk (PressExposure) October 21, 2009 -- Hooty's Supplies, a leading home superstore providing everything from household and garden items, DIY, electrical, food and drink and even pet supplies, has adopted YESpay’s pre-accredited and PCI DSS approved EMBOSS Payment Processing Service integrated with LDS Business Systems Ltd's in-store point of sale system.

Hooty's, who was previously using bank owned terminals, was facing issues related to double keying errors. In addition, they were losing potential sales due to long queueing times and service issues from the bank. LDS Business Systems, whose EPOS systems were already pre-integrated with YESpay's EMBOSS solution, worked on tight schedules rolling out their upgraded solution across Hooty's in less than 4 weeks.

Paul Brearley, Financial Controller at Hooty's comments, “We were concerned with the speed and miskeying of transactions using standalone terminals plus we had no way of tracking payments with our existing technology. LDS’s EPOS solution pre-integrated with YESpay's payment facility fitted our requirements perfectly. Now, we are not losing money resulting from wrong values being charged and we not only have a record of transactions from each of our tills but this service gives customers a 90% faster payment option.”

Lee Gorle, Director at LDS Systems, adds, “We have worked with YESpay in the past and our customers find the solution very easy to use, time saving, as well as offering further business benefits. Integration and roll-out with YESpay has been a very smooth process and their 24*7 support team is ready to help whenever we faced any hurdles.”

YESpay's EMBOSS payment service supports a multi-channel environment including retail, hospitality, e-commerce and self service. EMBOSS is pre-accreditted, PCI DSS Level 1 approved saving the retailer over 3 months in bank accreditation and PCI approval time.

Sean Young, Account Manager, YESpay says, “By outsourcing its card payments processing to YESpay, Hooty's has a high speed payment service to meet the demands of its business. The overhead of maintaining payments itself has been removed and it has freed up staff to concentrate on other issues. YESpay's intelligent EMBOSS payments gateway supports Hooty's future plans in spreading to a multi channel environment.”
