Marstonís Inns, part of Marstonís Plc has selected SecureTrading, the UKís leading independent payment processor, to manage its online customer accommodation booking, which will lead to a raft of business improvements.

Using SecureTradingís payment services, Marstonís can manage its web operations in house and monitor reservations more closely, while the system enables customers to take advantage of promotions on a pre-booked basis.

Jemma Milton, Digital Manager at Marstonís Plc, said: ďAs well as offering full PCI-compliance, it was important for the payment gateway to keep customers on our website to underline our professional service and brand.† Thanks to SecureTrading, we can now measure occupancy rates as a result of our stronger value driven offers.Ē

Marstonís had previously used third party websites to process payments but SecureTradingís system integrates fully with the existing website, ensuring customers stay in contact with the brand throughout the secure payment transaction and take advantage of offers such as discounts on meals. †SecureTradingís enhanced payment gateway enables Marstonís to react to customer Ďno-showsí more promptly and operate efficiently.

Tim Allitt, Head of Sales and Marketing at SecureTrading, comments: ďMarstonís has an impressive pedigree and we are delighted to provide its payment gateway.† Our secure system enables Marstonís to get closer to its customers and analyse reservation data.Ē

A recent trading statement reported that Marstonís had enjoyed a like-for-like sales increase in the 23 weeks to 10th March of 3.5%.
