Atos Worldwide has announced that it has deployed a ready-to-go Visa and Mastercard compliant Near Field Communications mobile payment service.
By swiping a compatible mobile phone against a custom terminal and entering a PIN the service allows consumers to conduct transactions without recourse to cards or cash.
Atos Mobile Wallet is being touted as a major contributor to the burgeoning contactless payment market which is expected to account for an increasing number of fresh business opportunities as the technology matures.
The design is readily brandable to both the colours and logo of the issuer and offers scope for further persoanlisation.
Christophe Duquenne, CEO at Atos Worldline, said: “Atos Worldline is focused on fostering and encouraging innovation. The Atos Mobile Wallet is an example of a product leveraging our unique combined expertise in both Payment and Mobile Services. It shows our commitment as business technologists to enable the Mobile Payment revolution, by using the latest technology to the benefit of our customers and the end-users."
