From GiroVend to GiroWeb
The successful GiroWeb history starts with the mile stone invention of the first cashless payment solution for communal catering in Germany, developed at the time by Hess SB-Automatenbau in Magstadt. This technical innovation was called GiroVend, and it was based on cards with magnetic stripes (nowadays mainly replaced by RFID technologies such as Legic advant or MIFARE DESFire). Back then the predominant payment method in dining halls and similar facilities was cash.
In 2006 the cashless payment business was passed on to ASM and later to GiroWeb, in order to further leverage the potential in a market still dominated by cash. Since then GiroWeb has been associated with state-of-the-art catering in the field of cashless payment solutions, i.e. [business catering] as well as university eateries, school lunchrooms and daycare centers. The network of regional GiroWeb branches covers all of Germany. Hence, your next GiroWeb partner is never far away.
