Crédit Agricole has selected Gemalto to support the bank in deploying Near Field Communication (NFC) mobile payment solutions in Nice. As part of the “Nice, Ville NFC” initiative, Crédit Agricole Provence Côte d’Azur offers its customers a contactless payment solution, using an NFC-approved mobile phone.

Since January 2011, customers of Crédit Agricole Provence Côte d’Azur have been able to subscribe to the NFC payment method at their local branch, enabling them to perform transactions at stores in the Nice Côte d’Azur urban community in a fast and intuitive way.

Gemalto supplies the Trusted Service Management operated services allowing for the secure deployment and management of mobile contactless payment, regardless of the mobile network. Its experience in the personalization of banking cards and the remote deployment of services is facilitating convergence between the mobile and banking worlds.

Gemalto is the leader in mobile contactless services, with more than 35 NFC projects successfully deployed in the world. It is therefore a reliable partner for Crédit Agricole in the roll out of this new service in Nice. This new milestone enhances the historic relationship between Crédit Agricole and Gemalto in the banking card business. It opens up highly promising prospects for the development of NFC payment.
