Case Study

Living Heritage Game & Country Shows have been using Wireless Terminal Solutions since 2009 when the company made the switch across from their old supplier, Thyron. Living Heritage continually deliver the best in Game & Country Shows across the UK and have done for over 20 years.

The organisers to the country shows were introduced to Wireless Terminal Solutions back in 2009 and required a temporary card machine to accept debit and credit card payments. The card machine was deemed such a success, the company have used Wireless Terminal Solutions ever since, and have found the short term rental on card machines delivers a great cost effective solution rather than having to commit to an ongoing fixed arrangement.

As the years have evolved, and the payment industry has taken shape with the introduction of contactless technology, this has helped the shows during peak trading periods. Marge Needham who assists with the operations at each Game & Country show describes Wireless Terminal Solutions’ short term card machines as “perfect” for their event season, whilst “the team have delivered a personal service from start to finish.” Marge comments on technical support she has received:

[us_single_image image=”9545″ size=”full” align=”center”]

The mobile coverage at some of the show grounds can only be described as temperamental. With our old card machine from Thyron, we struggled to get any sort of connection, and we knew something had to change. We were introduced to Wireless Terminal Solutions and started using their short term rental service. Not only did we find the card machine we were given was superior, but they also delivered a better service. It is imperative for Living Heritage to accept card payments regardless of any connectivity issues that we may face. I’ve predominately dealt with Mark and Lee and they have remedied any connectivity issues quickly and efficiently.  The roaming SIM gives me a choice of various mobile networks, and gives me and my colleagues peace of mind. The introduction of the contactless card machine back in 2015 was great, and is now widely used by our visitors. If you are contemplating a short term rental on a card machine I would be happy to recommend WTS.

Are you an event organiser or exhibitor that accepts debit and credit card payments and you simply aren’t satisfied with the service or quality of card machine you’ve been receiving from your current provider? Wireless Terminal Solutions offers everything you need for a cashless business and offers a huge variety of contactless card machines. Contact us today for a FREE no obligation quote.
