FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ABnote Is Platinum Sponsor for
CARTES Secure Connexions America 2015
Company Demonstrating Full Suite of Card and Mobile
Customer Engagement Payment and Identification Solutions
Fort Lee, New Jersey. – April 7, 2015 – ABnote, a global leader in secure payment and identification solutions, will once again act as Platinum Sponsor at CARTES Secure Connexions America. The conference, which will take place in Washington, D.C. from May 5 to 7, is the leading North American industry event for card and mobile device-based payment and secure identification solutions for financial services, retail, government and hospitality markets.
ABnote, at Booth 301, will be exhibiting a wide range of payment and customer engagement solutions through a series of hands-on demonstration stations, taking attendees through an end-to-end card or smart phone enrollment, issuance, value loading, analysis and control, and redemption process. “Attendees can sign up, receive a personalized card or have a payment app activated on their phone, and then try out a series of customer engagement applications – including redemption for a small gift,” said Keith Goldstein, CEO of ABnote North America. In addition, select issuers will also be eligible to sample ABnote’s newest software innovation, enabling ABnote clients to detect potential cyber fraud before any loss can occur. According to John Ekers, ABnote’s Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, “As we have done previously with our early adoption of Instant Issuance and HCE, ABnote has been able to partner with a market first-mover, to offer the industry’s broadest and most innovative platform for pre-fraud intervention. It is the first of its kind, and one can only imagine the added security that this offers not only to financial issuers and card holders, particularly in the largely unprotected space of Card Not Present (CNP) transactions, but in the Government identity space as well.”
ABnote’s contributions to the conference programs at CARTES America also includes a series of presentations and panel participation on topics ranging from EMV deployments and the value of harnessing big data, to the role of new enabling technologies such as HCE. Scott Hagstrom, senior director, Financial and EMV Card Strategy, will present the Keynote Address on Thursday, May 7th at 8:30 a.m. For more information on ABnote’s range of payment and identification solutions visit the ABnote booth (Booth 301) at CARTES America, visit ABnote.com or call +1 (617) 325-9600.
