Smart payment association - article blog

 

Cartes, Paris, 6th November 2012 - Smart Payment Association President, Andreas Strobel, to speak at CARTES 2012

 

EMV2.0, accelerating retail payment and bringing the US on board will be some of the issues Smart Payment Association President, Andreas Strobel, will address when he takes the stage at CARTES 2012 on 8th November.

 

Focusing on the elements EMV2.0 needs to be successful as payment moves online and increasingly mobile, Strobel will outline the SPA’s vision for the standard. He’ll call for greater industry collaboration, and highlight the technology issues and challenges that could make or break the market.

 

Andreas Strobel, President, SPA said: “We’re at a turning point. Consumers are demanding new ways to pay, and the vendors are responding. But without truly interoperable solutions we risk creating a fragmented market of competing technologies and business models. This will benefit no one – consumers, retailers or financial institutions.

 

We need to come together as an industry to drive the adoption of globally consistent payment standards that address all the technical, regulatory, security and user experience challenges we are likely to face over the coming decade. If we don’t, we’ll keep seeing false dawns, and will fail to realise the potential of truly smart payment ”

 

In support of CARTES activity, the SPA is announcing the availability of two whitepapers offering critical insights into the future of the payment industry.
