KORE Payments and Indeflex Innovate to Help Businesses During COVID-19

Saint Augustine, FLA. (PRWEB) April 14, 2020

Indeflex, a cutting-edge financial technology firm with offices nationwide, is adapting to the new needs of businesses amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic by partnering with smart sales teams like KORE Payments to deliver mobile and web payment solutions. “The partnership is allowing us to get creative to help merchants impacted by COVID-19.” said Nick Korthals, CEO of KORE Payments. Backed by Indeflex’s unique set of business management and marketing tools, partners like KORE Payments can thrive while others regroup. “Indeflex provides concierge-level service and cutting-edge technology to our sales partners nationwide, which allows them to innovate during times like this to maximize their success,” said Phil Krivacek, Managing Partner at Indeflex.

As businesses worldwide face increasingly stringent social distancing policies due to the spread of COVID-19, local companies are having to adapt and move their traditional pickup and delivery options online. “Business owners have had to close, or are struggling to make takeout and curbside service work. So, for all businesses, it’s more important than ever to save money,” Nick Korthals said.

As part of their new strategy, KORE Payments is offering free mobile terminals and online ordering portals for their customers. “This is a huge advantage for merchants who do not want to lose a big portion of their profits from customers paying through Uber Eats or a similar service, which charges a substantial percentage of each sale. By cutting out the middle man for the business owner, they can handle their orders in-house, and they don’t lose that huge chunk of the ticket price,” says Nick. Phil Krivacek, the Managing Partner at Indeflex, says, “The business owner’s number one assets are their cash flow and customers. By offering as many options as possible for customers to make the purchase, it allows these businesses to stay open and maintain their customer base. That could mean the difference between businesses reopening their doors or having to close after this is all over.”
