areeba participated in Seamless Middle East 2018, on April 15-16, at the Dubai World Trade Centre, where it showcased a new range of innovative issuing and acquiring services:
- the Biometric Payment Card, a card combining chip and fingerprints technology for payment authentication, to conveniently and safely verify the cardholder’s identity for in-store purchases. No upgrade is required on the POS, as the biometrics check is directly performed on the EMV biometric card and nowhere else.
- the Chatbot, a conversational Artificial Intelligence service allowing issuing banks to provide virtual assistant to their cardholders via messenger application to do daily card operations such as card and account management, security management, money transfers and informational services.
- the Mobile Payment Wallet serves cardholders in the mobile payment space. It provides banks customers with the traditional mobile banking package, and allows them to make quick and safe retail payments. It offers governments a mean to enhance their employees’ financial needs such as paying salaries or managing their money through an app.
- the QR Code Mobile Payment allows merchants & cardholders to transact by scanning the merchant’s static or dynamic QR code from their mobile phones without the need for a POS. It is a relatively low cost and secure solution and alternative to expensive payment terminals.
In addition, areeba’s Chief Commercial Officer, Mr. Ramzi Saboury, participated in a panel on mobile payment during the 2-day exhibition.
