Nets and Yonoton start extensive sales cooperation

Yonoton Ltd. and Nets start sales cooperation in Nordic Countries. Yonoton is a technology company specialising in digital ordering and buying processes. Nets is one of Europe’s leading service companies in digital payments. Nets Netaxept payment platform is used in all Yonoton’s SaaS products. 

The companies cooperate in many different customer sectors from amusement parks such as Norway´s Dyreparken to big hospitality industry operators, such as NoHo Partners and Sodexo. The integration of their products creates direct client benefits like improving the customer experience and simplifying the buying processes for both business clients and individual consumers.

“Our goal here at Nets is to make tomorrow a little easier, and Yonoton has the same idea built in their services. It is great to be part of this enabling of modern, effortless services that help people to focus in the actual experience they are participating”, says Nets Sales Director Jaakko Laurila.

“Yonoton is in the process of expanding the business globally. We want to cooperate with agile companies like Nets that strive forward. It is extremely important to facilitate the use of digital payments”, states Yonoton CEO Teemu Karenius.

“Yonoton application was perfect for us!”

One of the shared partners is Europe’s biggest sports and leisure centre Vierumäki. The main owner of Vierumäki through his investment company Keele Ltd is the founder of energy group ST1 Mika Anttonen. Vierumäki decided to develop their digital services to use them as a communication channel and to make purchasing easier. Their goal is to grow into one of the world’s most innovative sports theme parks by using modern digital services.

“Yonoton application was perfect for us”, says Vierumäki Customer Experience Director Mikko Ahonen. “Through the new application customers will be able to, for example, reserve playing fields and order food and drinks from our restaurant. We can inform them about events and current activities, and there will also be an interactive map and loyalty programmes integrated into the application. New Vierumäki Friends -service will be launched at the end of October”, Ahonen continues.

Vierumäki’s vast service selection with 300 sports activity choices is presented clearly in the application, and when a customer spots something interesting, purchases and reservations are made possible immediately.

“Vierumäki organisation benefits as we get useful data about client behavior and movements through the application. With that information we can target our marketing more precisely. We also strongly believe that making purchasing easier will increase sales. Our employees, on their part, will benefit when the amount of manual work and the number of reservation calls decrease”, says Mikko Ahonen.
