Geidea, one of the leading FinTech companies in the region, and Advanced Computer Technology (ACT), the leading system integrator in the hospitality sector, has forged a new strategic partnership to power the transformation of payments in the hotels and restaurants market in Egypt. The deal was signed on the sidelines of HACE- Hotel Expo, Egypt’s leading exhibition for hotels and restaurant equipment.

The partnership, which will see Geidea digital payment solutions plugged into ACT customers’ existing technologies, will provide hospitality businesses with improved operational efficiencies by eliminating human errors that occur during the customer payment process on point-of-sale (POS) machines. With more than 34 years of experience in the hospitality sector, the agreement will allow ACT to empower nearly all high-end hotels and restaurants in Egypt with the ability to deliver a seamless payment experience to their guests.

In doing so, we are helping to unleash the power of digital solutions and build empowered cashless communities.”
“We are delighted to team up with Advanced Computer Technology (ACT) to advance the hotel guest experience through our innovative digital payment solutions that will improve hotel operations and increase their efficiency while reducing human errors in all payment transactions,” said Ahmed Magdy, Commercial Senior Director & VP, Geidea Egypt.
Mohamed Tawfik, ACT Hospitality Group CEO, said, “We continue to grow and diversify our solution portfolio to cater to our customers’ business demands.
