ryd and Scheidt & Bachmann have agreed on the automatic integration of ryd pay into all SIQMA POS systems in Switzerland. For this purpose Scheidt & Bachmann’s innovative SIQMA Connect Cloud will be used, which complies with the international IFSF standard 3-60 Mobile Payment to Site Interface Standard. The pre-installed ryd ready interface makes it easier for petrol station operators to access mobile payment. This applies to newly delivered POS systems and a large number of existing systems in the field. SIQMA POS systems are market leading in Switzerland. More than one third of the 3,367 Petrol stations in Switzerland are using a Scheidt & Bachmann system. Scheidt & Bachmann systems are distributed and installed by Schenk Systeme AG in Switzerland.

"In a dynamic field like fuel retail management, solutions are needed that are as well contemporary as trend-setting," says Stephan Löffler, Head of Product Management & Marketing from Scheidt & Bachmann. "The automatic integration of the ryd pay interfaces via the SIQMA Connect Cloud into the SIQMA POS system of Scheidt & Bachmann facilitates access to mobile payment for petrol station operators and customers alike."
Tilo Schroiff, Head of Sales at ryd suisse AG adds: "With the increasing digital connection partnerships and comprehensive new ecosystems are created. These enable a large number of new innovative services. Through the connection to the SIQMA Connect Cloud from Scheidt & Bachmann, the petrol station operators are a big step closer towards offering mobile payment because ryd pay can already be used in more than 1,000 petrol stations in Switzerland. All that is required is integration into the respective company software release."
