Gemalto Presents a Large Range of Solutions for Mobile Financial Services at CARTES & IDentification 2011
15 November, 2011 – Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, is showcasing a large range of solutions for Mobile Financial Services (MFS) at CARTES & IDentification 2011. The collection of Gemalto software applications, secure devices and services are designed to provide financial institutions and mobile network operators with an end-to-end approach to deploying new consumer services with secure and flexible access anytime, anywhere. Gemalto specifically developed the “Enter the Mobile Financial Services Experience” hands-on demo lab for visitors to try out these applications at the CARTES & IDentification show.
Mobile handset penetration continues to rise exponentially with 5.4 billion handsets expected to be in circulation by 2015, and ever increasing sophistication in mobile apps to meet new consumer demands. The mobile phone is also emerging as a key tool for bringing financial services to some 2.5 billion adults today considered ‘financially excluded’ especially in developing nations. A recent Gartner report positions money transfer and mobile payment among the top 10 mobile applications in 2012.
Discover Gemalto’s Mobile Financial Services offers:
Mobile Money: utilizing a mobile wallet, the solution enables users to securely transfer money, pay bills and make purchases from selected merchants, as well as top-up airtime. With Mobile Money, mobile subscribers with limited or no access to retail banking services can manage their income and payments securely, helping them build healthy and stable economic lifestyles.
Mobile Banking: enabling secure access to banking services, anytime and anywhere, with an optimized user experience over any mobile device. Users can receive notifications and alerts, pay bills, transfer money, apply for credit, deposit checks, withdraw cash from ATMs and manage their bank accounts.
Mobile Payment: enabling secure remote and proximity payments for digital or physical goods and services, whether in-store or online, using the mobile device. A seamless payment experience allows customers to tap to pay or check-out with a single click, while delivering value-added-services beyond the transaction, such as promotional offers or loyalty programs. The offer also extends to the Netsize App Store Billing solution, bringing secure and convenient payment to mobile subscribers for buying apps and digital content, on many of today’s leading handsets.
Mobile NFC and TSM Services: delivering value-added Near-Field Communication (NFC) services thanks to the mobile handset being a contactless device. NFC functionality enables convenient interactions with the physical world, taking consumer applications like payment, ticketing, couponing and loyalty programs to a
whole new level of easy engagement. Behind the scenes, the Trusted Service Manager (TSM) ensures that sensitive data, user credentials and software applications are handled and provisioned with unmatched
security protection and seamless service delivery.
