Rotterdam, Netherlands-based smart token management solution provider, Bell ID, has joined the EMV Migration Forum. The forum brings together payment systems, FIs, manufacturers and others in the NFC ecosystem to ensure interoperability, security and consumer usability of secure-chip technology.
As a member of the forum, Bell ID will contribute its knowledge of provisioning and managing the delivery of secure services to end-users through chip-based technologies.
"The U.S. has a unique opportunity to create an innovative secure EMV infrastructure that not only supports payment-related mobile contactless transactions, but also payment enabling services, such as redemption of coupons," said Pat Curran, executive chairman at Bell ID. "The ability to deliver such value added services will offer real customer convenience and drive the next generation of payment technology."
