One of the largest financial institutions in the Netherlands is now offering its customers an easy-to-use, secure and private mobile payment system. Rabobank is now offering a mobile wallet with secure payment app from G&D.
Munich-based technology group Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) provides the service platform for this ground-breaking solution for mobile payments and mobile value added services.
Dutch consumers are now able to use their Samsung S4 and Note 3 smartphones to pay for their shopping, check balances, store loyalty cards and to redeem digital vouchers via Near Field Communication (NFC) in shops that are equipped with contactless terminals. The Rabo Wallet is based on G&D’s mobile application platform Convego AppWorld and is supported by G&D’s Trusted Service Management (TSM) service for secure mobile payments. G&D’s TSM service, which is connected to Samsung’s provisioning solution, lays the foundation for the secure transmission of sensitive applications to mobile phones.
It enables Rabobank to securely manage the complete life cycle of its mobile debit card after issuance. Convego AppWorld provides superior flexibility when it comes to the introduction and provision of additional services within the Rabo Wallet. Rabobank and its partners can now use the Convego AppWorld development kit to set up further services and offer them directly in real time to their customers via the remote G&D managed services.
