Motorway service area operator, Roadchef, has extended its contract with Cashzone for the supply and management of ATM services at its network up to 2017.
Exceeding projected forecasts, Roadchef reports its ATM revenues up by some 3% on 2010, which it attributes to Cashzone’s service and the value of the partnership in cash provision.
“Extending our contract with Cashzone was clearly a no-brainer,” said Roadchef’s director of loss prevention, Michael Heaton.
“ATM reliability and availability is critical to meet increasing customer demand, which is up across our estate as we roll out a major regeneration programme.
“The long-standing relationship established with Cashzone pays real dividends in working with a trusted partner which delivers exceptional customer service, understands our operation and reflects our brand values.”
“Extending the ATM contract to 2017, ahead of renewal timing, illustrates the confidence which Roadchef has in its partnership with Cashzone,”said Tim Halford, business development director at Cashzone.
“We’re proud to be Roadchef’s exclusive ATM partner of choice. It’s a truly progressive company, keen to optimise service and revenue potential, while focused on investment, innovation and customer loyalty. We’ve had a long and mutually fruitful relationship to date and very much look forward to the road ahead.”
With its acquisition of OmniCash in April this year, Cashzone is one of the largest independent cash machine operators in the UK, with an estate of some 6,000 ATMs. The exclusivity agreement with Roadchef also underpins the company as a market leader in the motorway service sector, Cashzone said.
