Dai Nippon Printing (DNP), a NFC technology supplier and solution provider for financial institutions in Japan, has inked Gemalto to provide its mobile payment solutions to DNP.
DNP will operate Gemalto’s solutions, enabling its customers in payment segment to easily deploy tokenized mobile NFC services leveraging available mobile wallets and security frameworks. Gemalto’s solutions provide complete end-to-end services, from real time enrollment and token issuance to secure provisioning of payment credentials on end-users’ smartphones.
Japan is one of the most advanced markets for mobile shopping, with 60% of eCommerce expected to happen via mobiles by the end of 2015. Contactless payments are widely used in public transport, restaurants, and retail stores. The heavy influx of newer smartphones is now driving the rollouts of international NFC standards within the country. Gemalto’s turnkey solution will bring an autonomous and yet flexible solution to DNP’s customers, allowing them to reach consumers across a comprehensive range of devices and networks.
Gemalto says as Tokyo prepares to host the 2020 Olympics, many initiatives are being taken to create a seamless NFC infrastructure at airports, public transport and shops for foreign visitors.
