Wirecard to propel smart mobility solutions with HERE Mobility

Michael Santner, VP for Strategic Alliances at Wirecard

Wirecard has entered into a partnership with HERE Technologies’ mobility unit HERE Mobility in a bid to develop a B2B2C payment and mobility services.

“We are excited to enter into a strategic alliance with Wirecard and benefit from the digital payment expertise they bring to the table,” commented Liad Itzhak, SVP Head of Mobility at HERE Mobility. “Combined with our smart mobility solutions, we see our joint projects with Wirecard as having an enormous potential to revolutionize mobility services on a global scale.”

According to the supplier, the partnership will see HERE Mobility integrate its Marketplace into Wirecard’s digital payments app, boon.PLANET. This is expected to allow users of the app to book and pay for rides with the help of the embedded HERE Mobility Marketplace link.

“As mobility services become a part of consumers’ daily lives, and the personal vehicle takes the back seat, we find it essential to be at the forefront of this mobility revolution,” added Michael Santner, VP for Strategic Alliances at Wirecard. “Both Wirecard and HERE Mobility will bring the best of their platforms to this cooperation, and we look forward to launching new and exciting projects.”

The partnership will allow for the provision of mobility services with an integrated payment flow for merchants. The supplier is expected to act as the payment service provider for HERE Mobility.

Recently, Wirecard announced a €109 million investment in the Beijing-based AllScore Payment Services with an aim to gain a comprehensive license portfolio for digital payments.
