Somewhat later than expected, SEQR mobile payment has come to Windows Phone.

The system has of course launched in the country with the highest percentage of Windows Phone users, Finland, but SEQR hopes to expand it to Sweden soon.

“Through SEQR we want to make everyday life a bit easier for both merchants and consumers. Our ambition is to reach as many users as possible and with so many Windows Phone users in Finland it was only a natural step to develop SEQR for Windows making it available from day one,” says Peter Fredell. 

The system is launching today at Hesburger,  Finland’s largest hamburger chain, where buyers, either via NFC or QRCode,  can pay for their burger with their smartphone, connect their loyalty card and redeem offers through the same app.

“We are continuously looking for way to expedite and further enhance our customers Hesburger experience. When choosing the partner for mobile payments, we wanted to work with the industry leader. In addition to mobile payments we wanted to include our Bonusklubi loyalty program into one app as well as inform our customers on our offers with it. SEQR offer versatile, true tested mobile payment solution,” says Jari Vuoti, Executive Vice President, Hesburger.

There are 280 Hesburger restaurants in Finland and SEQR is being launched in 120 of their own restaurants run by Burger In-Oy. The plan is to have SEQR rolled out to all franchise restaurants by the end of the year.
