Ingenico (Euronext: FR0000125346 - ING), leading worldwide provider of payment solutions, today announces its collaboration with Orange to enable its French customers to top up their accounts via its subsidiary, Ingenico Prepaid Services.
Orange called for Ingenico Prepaid Services' expertise and payment terminals (IP or GPRS iCT250 or wireless iWL280) with NFC embedded technology to test a direct, contactless top-up system for its prepaid customers.
A salesman at the POS selects the product desired from the Orange Mobicarte product range after having received payment for the top-up. He/she then asks the customer to scan their tag (sticker or key ring with NFC chip) using the payment terminal. The payment terminal instantly identifies the customer number and forwards the top-up request to Orange, which adds the amount of credit corresponding to this number to the customer's account in real time. The payment terminal then prints out a ticket containing the transaction number, which is issued to the customer as a purchase receipt.
Ingenico is innovating in collaboration with Orange to provide the consumer with a whole new experience", declared Thierry Legros, Managing Director at Ingenico Prepaid Services France. "Simplifying the top-up process, without calling a voice server and without the input of a 14-digit key: for the salesman this means less paper, a modern sales process and the guarantee of improved customer loyalty".
