Gemalto und Standard Bank in Südafrika vereinen Zahlungs- und Verkehrssektor in einer Lösung

Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), das weltweit führende Unternehmen auf dem Gebiet der digitalen Sicherheit, stellt der Standard Bank, die zu den führenden Geldinstituten Südafrikas zählt, eine kontaktlose EMV-Zahlungskarte mit mehreren Funktionen zur Verfügung. Mit dieser digitalen Geldbörse können Fahrten und weitere Waren und Dienstleistungen bezahlt werden. Die Kunden der Standard Bank können jetzt die neue MasterCard®-Debitkarte an den Sperren der Bahnhöfe bzw. Stationen des öffentlichen Personenverkehrs schwenken und damit für die Fahrt direkt bezahlen. Bargeld oder eine eigene Karte für Fahrten sind nicht mehr erforderlich. Die „Muvo“-Karteninitiative macht nicht nur das Leben der Karteninhaber einfacher, sie verschafft der Standard Bank auch Wettbewerbsvorteile und reduziert die Arbeitslast bei der Verwaltung von Bargeld im öffentlichen Personenverkehr in der südafrikanischen Stadt Durban.

Im Rahmen der Partnerschaft wurden bereits über 100.000 Karten für die Gemeinde Ethekwini ausgegeben. Damit sind die Weichen für eine dramatische Verbesserung der ticketlosen Bezahlung von Fahrten im öffentlichen Verkehrssystem der Küstenstadt Durban gestellt. An rund 30 über die Stadt verteilten Verkaufsstellen können Pendler ihre Karten aufladen. Die „Muvo“-Karte erfüllt die hohen Anforderungen des National Department of Transport (NDoT), das die Kombination von Zahlungsmittel und Fahrten im Personenverkehr in einer einzigen Anwendung unterstützt. Da die Karte auch individuell auf das Profil eines Nutzers des öffentlichen Personenverkehrs zugeschnitten werden kann, hat NDoT die Möglichkeit, seine Fahrpreise entsprechend abzustimmen.

Die „Muvo“-Karte bietet nicht nur einen Mehrwert für bestehende Kontoinhaber, sie besitzt auch ein beträchtliches Potenzial, neue Kunden zu erschließen. Vielen dieser Menschen war zuvor der Zugang zum klassischen Bankensektor verwehrt. Dass Fahrten nicht mehr mit Bargeld bezahlt werden müssen, führt außerdem zu einer deutlichen Zunahme der Sicherheit in öffentlichen Bussen. Auch Schlangestehen und Fahrplanabweichungen werden weniger, da Fahrgäste und Personal nicht mehr nach Wechselgeld suchen müssen.

Im Rahmen seiner laufenden Betreuung des Debit- und Kreditkarten-Portfolios der Standard Bank stellt Gemalto Datenvorbereitungs- und –personalisierungsdienste für die „Muvo“-Karte zur Verfügung.

Die neue Karte zeigt deutlich den Innovationswert, den wir unseren Kunden durch die Integration von Fahrkarten für den öffentlichen Personenverkehr in einer Bankkarte bieten, welche die im Bankensektor erforderlichen Sicherheitsauflagen erfüllt und gleichzeitig eine elektronische Geldbörse ist“, kommentierte Mike Hughes, Business Development Manager of Beyond Payments, des Geschäftsbereichs Innovation and New Business der Standard Bank. „Wir haben vor, den Einsatz von kontaktlosen EMV-Zahlungen auf eine Reihe verschiedener Bereiche auszudehnen, darunter Veranstaltungen, Schulen und Universitäten sowie Mautstraßen und andere Angebote im Verkehrssektor.“

Wir sind in ein neues Zeitalter eingetreten, in dem immer häufiger mehrere Kartendienste in einem einzigen Produkt vereint werden, um dem Endnutzer den größtmöglichen Komfort zu bieten“, fügte Gabrielle Bugat, Senior Vice President bei Gemalto, hinzu. „Wir stehen der Standard Bank bei ihren Bestrebungen zur Seite, dem unterversorgten Teil der Bevölkerung besseren Zugang zu Finanzdiensten zu verschaffen. Dabei dient der Verkehrssektor als Sprungbrett.“
