Giesecke & Devrient Introduces Mobile Wallet App

The newest addition to Giesecke & Devrient’s wide-ranging variety of Near Field Communication products, SmartTrust Portigo is a comprehensive mobile wallet solution for NFC services that merges electronic wallet functions onto a common platform. Now debit and credit cards, ID cards, loyalty cards, public transport tickets and access keys for buildings and vehicles all will be available in Portigo’s electronic wallet—from any smart phone.

To use Portigo, users simply download Wallet Client software onto their mobile phones. Wallet Client establishes connections to a secure element, such as a SIM card, and to the Wallet Manager, which is provided in the mobile network by the wallet issuer.

Klaus Vedder, group senior vice president at Giesecke & Devrient, said, “Users will find that SmartTrust Portigo is an easy-to-use app. At the same time, it opens up a wide range of new opportunities for mobile network operators, banks and other service providers to develop new mobile services as part of their individual brand strategies.”
