Paperless meal vouchers: structuring the offer

  • FRANCE – Crédit Mutuel-CIC unveils Monetico Resto: its paperless luncheon voucher service.

Banks taking a stab at the m-commerce sector

  • POLAND – Bank Zachodni WBK (subsidiary of Santander Group) designed a marketplace intended for its “Superwallet”: a payment, m-banking and m-commerce application, all in one place.

Several banks are now wandering through the paths of the m-commerce sector with especially crafted solutions, but without casting aside their existing m-banking tools. A means for them to rely on their status to make a difference in this emerging multichannel ecosystem.
