July 10, 2012 – C-SAM, Inc. (C-SAM) and Dai Nippon Printing Co., Ltd. (DNP) today announced that DNP has been licensed C-SAM’s Mobile Transaction Platform (MTP) as a part of the two companies collaboration on a mobile wallet solution that will be fully integrated with DNP’s TSM (Trusted Service Manager) solution, smart card offerings, and NFC technologies and digital services.
This jointly developed and comprehensive mobile implementation will offer a scalable and flexible mobile wallet solution to mobile operators, retailers and banks, as well as healthcare and other service providers both in Japan and globally. Selectable configurations of multiple mobile services will be offered including payment, offers, coupons, banking, loyalty, healthcare and other rich value added services supported by the C-SAM platform.
The C-SAM MTP addresses the complexities of managing multiple mobile devices & operating systems, secure elements, and connections to multiple third party systems for conducting secure NFC and/or Barcode transactions related to payments, rewards, coupons, ticketing and related services.
DNP currently serves a broad cross-section of the Japanese market offering a wide range of services related to smart cards, printing and technology as a hardware and software provider and system integrator. This new offering will leverage and expand the services DNP is able to provide to both current and new customers.
“We are very pleased to be working with C-SAM to further strengthen and expand the value and services DNP offers our customers, both within Japan and abroad”, said Sakae Hikita, Managing Director of DNP. “We believe this configurable and fully integrated mobile wallet solution will leverage our existing offerings and provide a powerful globally deployable offering.”
“We are exceedingly proud to be selected by a company of DNPs international reputation as their partner in this well conceived and powerful offering. The combination of C-SAM’s comprehensive MTP and development services with DNP’s domain expertise and existing applications and services will result in a game changing mobile solution within Japan and globally” said Felix Marx, CEO of C-SAM.
The C-SAM platform, Secure Mobile Transaction Platform and SDK has previously been selected by ISIS, the US based joint venture of AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, as the platform on which their mobile wallet offering is based. Additionally, C-SAM recently announced a joint initiative with MasterCard (NYSE:MA) to offer a white label mobile wallet solution based on C-SAM’s flexible Mobile Transaction Platform (MTP) enabling seamless integration with MasterCard’s pre-paid platform, offers, PayPass Wallet Services and rich informational services. C-SAM’s new initiative with DNP will build on and leverage these existing implementations, and allow the exploration of offering interoperable services across global continental markets to develop and provide continuous, global and user friendly experiences to consumers and customers.
