Norway-based biometric fintech Zwipe and TietoEVRY, a provider of software and digital banking services in the Nordics, have agreed to jointly roll out biometric payment solutions based on the Zwipe Pay ONE platform.
With the recent surge in demand for safer and more secure payments, TietoEVRY is embracing biometric payment innovations that enable more hygienic, secure and convenient payments for consumers.
As part of this commercial agreement, Zwipe will provide TietoEVRY with technical support towards biometric payment card integration, enrollment solutions, and a complete end-to-end advisory offering aimed at helping banks to successfully deploy biometric payment solutions.
TietoEVRY will source their Zwipe Pay ONE-based cards through their network of card manufacturers.
“We are excited to roll-out the Zwipe Pay ONE platform in close collaboration with Zwipe, a pioneer and innovator in biometric payments. We selected Zwipe as the most interesting partner for mass market deployment. Together, we will support banks to roll-out biometric payment cards and wearables at scale. From recent discussions with issuers, we already see broad interest for such innovations.”
says Jarmo Rouhiainen, Head of TietoEVRY Card Production and Personalisation Services.
“TietoEVRY’s deep relations with a large number of banks in the Nordics, Baltics and beyond will be a strategic complement to Zwipe’s technology leadership, accelerating the deployment of next generation contactless payments. Partnering closely with one of Europe’s strongest players in payment services, we are further showcasing the value-add we deliver to the ecosystem,”
says André Løvestam, CEO of Zwipe.
