TouchBistro will offer streamlined restaurant checkout with Barclaycard cardholders.
Barclaycard, the U.K.-based credit card unit of Barclays Bank Plc, said it entered a partnership with TouchBistro to streamline payments processing in restaurants and pubs.
Barclaycard is not integrated with Touchbistro, which offers iPad-based point-of-sale technology for restaurants and bars around the world.
The partnership will be more efficient and reduce errors during order taking and payment at U.K. restaurants, bars and pubs, particularly when customers split a bill, according to the companies.
“We know that getting customer experience right is vital for a restaurant to build loyalty among its clientele,” Nicole Olbe, managing director of partnerships at Barclaycard Payment Solutions, said in a company release. “Our new agreement with Touchbistro will help hospitality outlets streamline their processes, thereby driving revenue and allow waitstaff to spend more time with their customers.”
Touchbistro operates in more than 16,000 restaurants in 100 countries. Barclaycard said it processes about half the debit and credit card transactions in the U.K. and processed $327 billion in transactions worldwide in 2018.
