UK, April 03, 2012, 10:44 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Marston’s
Inns, part of Marston’s Plc has selected SecureTrading, the
UK’s leading independent payment processor, to manage its
online customer accommodation booking, which will lead to a
raft of business improvements.

Using SecureTrading’s payment services, Marston’s 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 Marston’s Plc, said: “As 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.”

Marston's had previously used third party websites to process
payments but SecureTrading’s 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. SecureTrading’s enhanced payment gateway enables
Marston’s to react to customer ‘no-shows’ more promptly and
operate efficiently.

Tim Allitt, Head of Sales and Marketing at SecureTrading,
comments: “Marston’s has an impressive pedigree and we are
delighted to provide its payment gateway. Our secure system
enables Marston’s to get closer to its customers and analyse
reservation data.”

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