Sequent Software announced on Tuesday a technology partnership with Trüb AG, which will use Sequent’s mobile payments platform to provide management services and over-the-air provisioning for EMV-compliant cards.
Using the Trüb service, bank card issuers and other service providers are able to provision their cards directly into customers’ NFC mobile devices operating on the Swisscom network.
“Using the Trüb service, Swisscom subscribers will soon be able to download their credit or prepaid cards into their SIM cards and together with NFC smartphones use them to make purchases from NFC-enabled merchants,” Sachin Mittal, the group product manager of mobile payment at Swisscom, said. “Trüb and Sequent delivered a full set of capabilities while requiring the shortest time to integrate and complete user acceptance testing of their SP-TSM solution with Swisscom’s MNO-TSM, part of NFC service platform, making them an easy choice for our future mobile payment programs.”
Trüb’s provisioning service enables OTA card management on numerous devices from Swisscom, and other mobile network operators are to be included in the future.
“Trüb has chosen the Sequent SP-TSM suite of products over five other technology vendors after a thorough evaluation process,” Trüb CEO Fernando Dal Zotto said. “We found Sequent’s solution to be complete, configurable and expandable, and over the past year we have established strong working relationships with Sequent’s technical and management teams.”
