Worldline launches Roundup feature on UK railway app Redspottedhanky
By Joy Dumasia
Worldline, the payments and transactional services company, launches the Roundup feature through its rail ticketing app Redspottedhanky. Round up supports charities as they recover from the impact of the Pandemic and decreased fundraising revenues.
Redspottedhanky is the first retailer of UK rail tickets to allow customers the choice to give back and to help build back better as the world comes out of the COVID pandemic.
The first charity to benefit will be the Railway Children, who fight to support street children worldwide. A drop in donations has impacted the Railway Children over the last 18 months as important fundraising events have been postponed.
Redspottedhanky will have a charity of the Month that will receive the funds from donations. Our first ambition is these vital funds raised will directly support the societal and environmental recovery from the COVID pandemic.
In addition, Redspottedhanky now offers Flexi-Seasons and Split-Tickets, allowing customers to tailor their journeys and save up to 61% on rail tickets with simple payment through cards, Paypal, Apple pay and G-Pay. Customers will receive E-Tickets straight to their mobile devices with no need to collect from stations.
James Bain, CEO of Worldline UK & I, says: “Roundup is the UK first in the rail industry which we are proud to bring to our existing customers and hopefully our new customers. Helping people recover from the Pandemic must be our top priority in addition to preventing further damage to our planet. Our children are our future, and we are delighted to play a small part in supporting the Railway Children in their fight to ensure that no child should have to live on the street.”
Recently, IBS Intelligence reported that Worldline is the preferred partner of bofrost*, Europe’s direct distributor of frozen foods and ice cream. Together, the companies have built a complete solution that reduces the necessary hardware and establishes a secure connection between the various devices.
