Some of you may know that AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile have a joint venture for mobile payments called ISIS. So far it has been dead in the water but there have been a few signs of life. Proxama has announced that they were selected by ISIS to develop the mobile wallet for NFC enabled BlackBerry 10 devices. Seems like we may be seeing it soon. Here is the announcement:
Proxama PLC, (AIM: PROX, ‘Proxama’, ‘the Company’) the leading provider of NFC mobile wallet and NFC mobile engagement technology, today announced that the Company will work with Isis, the mobile commerce joint venture created by AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, to develop the Isis Mobile Wallet® application for NFC-enabled devices using the BlackBerry 10 operating system platform.
Miles Quitmann, Managing Director of Proxama®, said: “The roll out of Isis is a significant step forward for NFC as a mainstream consumer technology. We are delighted to be working with Isis on this very exciting venture. Proxama® has built up an enviable position in the mobile wallet space. The North American market is a really important one for us.”
Proxama’s technology platform is proven in supporting consumer engagement, loyalty and secure contactless payments through NFC. Proxama has worked with leading brands such as EAT, KFC, EE, and Barclaycard on NFC initiatives to support consumer engagement and mobile wallets.
