LUXEMBOURG - June 3, 2024 - Telindus and Up Luxembourg are joining forces to provide an innovative solution to the evolving needs of businesses and their employees. This collaboration aims to offer a more modern and flexible solution by integrating the digital management of meal vouchers into the Apsal ecosystem, Telindus's comprehensive payroll management solution.

The new meal voucher scheme announced by the Luxembourg government on June 9, 2023, mandates the digitalization of meal voucher management by January 1, 2025, driving increased interest in electronic management solutions for meal vouchers. This partnership between Telindus and Up Luxembourg addresses this regulatory change by offering a user-friendly solution adaptable to the changing needs of businesses and their employees.

Digitalizing the meal voucher scheme reduces administrative burdens for companies by eliminating the manual distribution of vouchers and simplifies daily management for restaurateurs and merchants. The old paper meal vouchers will remain usable until the end of 2024.

Up Luxembourg already collaborates with leading local companies such as Cactus to facilitate the transition to dematerialized meal vouchers. Its goal is to reduce the administrative burdens associated with meal voucher management while easing access to social benefits through a payment card and a single platform.

As part of this new collaboration, Telindus and Up Luxembourg have worked together to integrate data exchange related to the digitalization of meal vouchers into the Apsal ecosystem, a tool that handles all payroll processing and management activities. The aim is to facilitate data exchange between the two platforms while incorporating payroll management through data integration from the Up platform. This integration will allow Up Luxembourg clients using the Apsal solution to benefit from an innovative and intuitive interface for managing their social benefits.

"We are delighted with this collaboration with Up Luxembourg for the digitalization and dematerialization of meal vouchers, aimed at facilitating data exchange between our Apsal solution and their platform," said Jean Calçada, Deputy Director Apsal/Gesall Telindus. "This collaboration demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing innovative solutions that simplify the daily lives of businesses and their employees."

Alicia Brun, Country Manager of Up Luxembourg, adds, "This partnership between Up Luxembourg and Telindus represents a significant step forward in our commitment to providing our clients with modern and practical solutions for managing their benefits. We are convinced that Apsal, Telindus's flagship payroll calculation software, will be a valuable asset for our clients as we move towards the dematerialization of meal vouchers for everyone."

Telindus and Up Luxembourg are joining in an innovative effort to meet the evolving needs of businesses and their employees in the face of the imminent dematerialization of meal vouchers, in compliance with digitalization legislation. Their integration into the Apsal ecosystem offers a robust and flexible approach, simplifying the management of fringe benefits. This partnership illustrates the ongoing commitment of both companies to providing innovative, practical, and forward-thinking solutions, effectively supporting businesses in their transition to modern and efficient administrative management.
