NEXPERTS launches Wallegro as Mobile Wallet
Hagenberg, September 2014
Wallegro – a new free app launched by NEXPERTS – allows consumers to use a mobile wallet for personal items such as loyalty cards, coupons, ID cards, important notes and shopping lists.
Industry analysts see the next big trend to bring the wallet to the mobile phone. Juniper Research predicts there will be more than 1.5 billion mobile wallets in use around the world by 2018. The relevant use cases will be payment, loyalty, couponing, ticketing and access control.
NEXPERTS develops mobile contactless solutions and wallet technologies since 2007. The company supports MasterCard and VISA technology to allow contactless payment to be used by a simple tap on POS terminals using Near Field Communication (NFC). NFC based mobile wallet solutions from NEXPERTS are available on Android smartphones and on iPhone 4 and 5 using NFC cases. Going forward NEXPERTS will support the upcoming iPhone 6 which is most likely to have NFC on board.
Bringing a contactless payment card to a mobile phone is only the first step as the benefits are in many cases not significant enough for the user. Value added services like loyalty, couponing and shopping lists have various advantages. Consumers can immediately utilize such services and profit instantly by collecting bonus points.
By introducing Wallegro NEXPERTS supports this trend and creates a new consumer experience. “The numerous benefits are also available to our B2B customers like banks, retailers and operators within our white-label wallet solution” comments Kurt Schmid, CEO of NEXPERTS.
Wallegro can be downloaded for free on the Google Play Store and can be used immediately without registration. Optionally consumers can choose to register on www.wallegro.com to benefit from additional features like secure synchronization of wallet content across multiple devices and personalized offers.
Wallegro is based on the new fifth wallet generation from NEXPERTS which unifies a lot of advantages. By the combination of an issuer with a consumer wallet content can be created certified by banks and retailers on the wallet server but also added by end-users on their mobile phones. The NEXPERTS wallet technology supports MasterCard PayPass and VISA payWave profiles to enable contactless payment based on NFC. For this purpose SIM and uSD cards are supported as Secure Elements and Cloud Based Payment (CBP) techniques using Host Card Emulation (HCE) are utilized.
