123VIP – Private Network Heralds End To Erratic Payment Connections

UK’s only private network for card payment transactions

123Hire Ltd, one of the UK’s leading providers of short term card payment terminal rental, today launches its new solution, The 123VIP Network. Set to change the taking of payments at events, 123VIP is the UK’s only dedicated mobile network set up purely for processing card transactions.

With over a decade of experience working with some of the UK’s largest indoor and outdoor events, the challenge of mobile congestion has become more and more apparent.

At most events, mobile terminals will connect to a GPRS network to process transactions. However these networks are also used for voice and data use, both of which take priority. Transactions can become erratic and in some instances non-existent, especially in a remote event location with potential black spots, and the exponential increase in the use of social media and other bandwidth hungry applications has only added to this network congestion. This lack of connectivity, and the resulting potential loss of business, can be consigned to the past with 123VIP. The 123VIP Network can be set up at any event providing a congestion-free, dedicated network for credit and debit card transactions taken on 123Hire terminals.

The event organisers can therefore offer their exhibitors a more reliable service to ensure they can make the most of their event, while exhibitors won’t have to turn customers away because they can’t find a signal. This in turn means their customers have a better overall experience while at the event

Alex Webster, Director of 123Hire Ltd, says “We are very proud of the service we provide to our customers and are always looking at new ways in which we can help them accept payments, wherever payments may take them. Our customers can be the organisers themselves or businesses attending the event and we have seen first hand how many issues a congested mobile bandwidth can cause everyone. We wanted to provide a solution – that solution is 123VIP – a dedicated mobile signal that we can control and that is purely for taking payments.

Webster continues; “a recent customer at an event where we trialled our new private network told me that they could not believe the difference 123VIP made to processing card payments at the event.  As processing payments there is usually such a nightmare they weren’t going to bother hiring a card machine until they heard that our 123VIP Network was available. They found it to be reliable and fast and they said they would not hesitate to order another terminal knowing it would be on the VIP Network.  This customer now considers it a must have for large events and excellent value for money."

123VIP will be being showcased at The Showman’s Show from the 23rd to the 24th October 2014.
