25 July, 2005 – Curleys, the largest independent retailer in Northern Ireland, has launched a new PAYzone branded self-serve top-up kiosk solution from alphyra - the UK’s and Europe’s largest independent solution provider for the processing of electronic transactions.

From August, customers visiting the three of the group’s stores in Belfast, Dungannon and Ballymena will have access to PAYzone branded payment kiosks, allowing them to top up their mobile phone credit quickly and conveniently.

The PAYzone top-up kiosks will benefit customers who will have the freedom to e-top up their mobile phones without having to queue up at the traditional points of sale. Mobile phone customers will be able to carry out self-serve transactions quickly, easily and securely, and staff will be able to devote more time to customers who wish to be served. The kiosks have an easy to use touch screen and offer swipecard or top-up voucher options to consumers.

Hugh Kennedy, Managing Director of Curleys, said: "We are very excited about the launch of the new PAYzone kiosks, which will not only increase the range of services we offer, but will also increase overall efficiency and further improve the level of customer service we offer. For us it’s a win-win situation.

"Our Belfast, Dungannon and Ballymena stores enjoy high levels of footfall and we anticipate that the kiosks will prove to be very successful. We hope to put kiosks in place in all our other stores, forecourts and shopping centres across Northern Ireland, and to expand the range of payment processing services we can offer to our customers."

With over 120,000 points of sale across 19 European countries and a growing estate of 24,000 retailers in the UK – nearly double that if its nearest rival - alphyra PAYzone is the UK’s and Europe’s number one provider of electronic payment systems.
