Why is cleaning my terminal important?

Your terminal serves as a frequent contact point between your customers and your employees. Bacteria and viruses are easily spread, not just by contact with other people, but also through contact with objects such as phones, computers, keyboards, doorknobs and also through payment terminals. Studies suggest that coronaviruses, like COVID-19, may remain infectious on surfaces for several hours or even days.
 

How often should I clean my terminal?

If only a handful of people use your terminal every day, a daily cleaning is sufficient. However, if you carry out numerous transactions in a single day, we recommend cleaning your terminal several times daily.
 

Following these simple steps will help you to protect and reassure your customers and employees that your organisation is doing everything it can to prevent the spread of infectious diseases.
