Zwipe launches new white label biometric payment card enrollment solutions

 

With the planned mass-market deployment of biometric credit cards approaching, Zwipe is launching a range of white label fingerprint enrollment solutions designed for use by banks and issuers.

The new products include a secure enrollment kit which fits inside an envelope for home use by end-users, and a software suit for bank branches. The solutions support both at-home and in-branch enrollments to support regional preferences, as in many part of Europe, North America and the Asia Pacific region issuers prefer to mail payment cards to customer’s homes, while in the Middle East and Africa customers will generally be required to visit a branch to register their biometrics.

Zwipe compares the enrollment kit to a “powered greeting card,” but instead of playing an annoying song, the power source will activate the card when the kit is opened to securely register customer fingerprints, with a user experience Zwipe says is similar to that customers are used to with smartphones. The technical and mechanical design behind the user experience are intellectual property of Zwipe.

“Zwipe’s innovative home enrollment kit is an easy to use and cost-effective method of delivering cards to consumers and a critical piece in making biometric payment cards mass market ready,” says Zwipe CEO André Løvestam. “Our solutions for fingerprint enrollment protect users’ privacy as the biometric information will only be on the card and no-where else. The solutions are based on Zwipe’s deep understanding of what is needed to ensure a convenient user experience for biometric payment cards, enabling customer enrollment and onboarding to become a new strategic business line for Zwipe.”

The software application will allow stakeholders to securely enroll customers through a tablet or enrollment kiosk in the branch, with a branded and tailored enrollment experience. Zwipe will demonstrate the new enrollment products at Fintech Connect Live in London on December 5 and 6.

Zwipe appointed Pierre Girod as its new Head of Certification just weeks ago, to lead its relationship with payment networks as well as specification bodies such as EMVCo and the FIDO Alliance.
