Digital Identity , Financial

Wirecard, the global innovation leader for digital financial technology, is once again demonstrating its pioneering spirit by forming a strategic partnership with mobility visionary Rinspeed together with other companies such as SAP, DEKRA, Zurich Insurance and Osram. Wirecard is the payment partner within the cooperation and actively shaping the future of mobility.

Wirecard technologies will be integrated into Rinspeed’s concept vehicles, which are already providing a stimulus for how autonomous driving will work in the mass market in the future. This enables completely new customer experiences true to the motto “Commerce on the Move”. The planned use cases include retail, logistics and transportation. In cooperation with other partner companies, Wirecard will expand the functionality and the possibilities of Rinspeed vehicles using solutions from its Innovation Labs, such as the Grab & Go Store or biometric hand scanner. In addition, Wirecard is providing the payment infrastructure for all deployment scenarios.

“New forms of mobility open up completely new possibilities in the area of passenger transport, which will increasingly be electric, driverless and cashless. The way we travel, shop and work will change dramatically in the coming years,” said Axel Puwein, Director Business Development at Wirecard. “This change is made possible by the intelligent use of new technologies, with payment technologies and digital identification methods playing a central role. We look forward to proactively shaping this trend,” added Florian Eder, Principal Manager Strategic Alliances at Wirecard.

“Thanks to the partnership with Wirecard, we can offer entirely new deployment scenarios for our concept vehicles. Consumer behavior is completely changing and becoming increasingly independent of location and time. Everyday life – from shopping through to delivery – can happen autonomously and digitally,” said Frank M. Rinderknecht, Founder and CEO of Rinspeed AG.
