Cuscal Redi2Pay Mobile App
Cuscal is a financial services company with more than 3 million credit cards on issue. Cuscal is a major player in the card issuing market and offers access, debit and credit cards. It is one of Australia’s leading end-to-end payments providers and runs a network of ATMs around Australia.
We were briefed by Cuscal to design a mobile app prototype that uses innovative NFC payment technology. The technology involved is “Host Card Emulation (HCE)” which is available for Android devices running the KitKat operating system. It enables a mobile phone to connect to the internet to emulate a credit card. This gives a customer the ability to “tap and pay” without the need for a physical secure element on the device such as a sticker, phone case or special SIM card. We are proud to be a part of the first purchase in Australia using HCE technology which was a packet of TimTams at a 7-11 store in Sydney’s CBD!
We provided the mobile app designs for an innovative prototype version of the app. This app was featured in AFR, Ausdroid, ZDNET, News.com.au. Here is a video of this app:   http://vimeo.com/90165919
