G+D right tonic for Rabobank mobile payment migration
Along with the move, the Dutch bank has chosen G+D’s Convego AppWorld solution to build its own mobile payments ecosystem. “Rabo Wallet” users can manage their cards and make mobile payments – and can also activate other services like parking and a storage function for customer shop and loyalty cards.
The Rabo Wallet app is available for Android smart phones and supports Mastercard Maestro cards and related token services.
Suzan van Eeten, lead product manager Rabobank, in full sales pitch mode, says: “There was great enthusiasm for the Rabo Wallet. Within 24 hours, the pilot contained the maximum of 10,000 participants. 80% of the users were positive about the wallets’ functionality. That was a big incentive to place the app in the Playstore as quickly as possible.”
According to G+D, Rabobank decided to move to the cloud to scale the solution and provide services for a larger number of consumers. Rabobank customers no longer require a special kind of SIM card.
