Isis picks Proxama to develop BlackBerry 10 NFC wallet app

Proxama has been selected by Isis, the mobile commerce joint venture created by AT&T Mobility, T-Mobile USA and Verizon Wireless, to develop the Isis Mobile Wallet application for Blackberry 10 NFC devices.

Proxama CEO Neil Garner
GARNER: “It’s a great opportunity to expand our footprint”

The deal follows the US venture’s announcement in July that it will be making NFC mobile payments available to consumers across the United States from “later this year”.

“The app will support all the current Isis features available today, making all the features work with BlackBerry devices,” Neil Garner, CEO of Proxama, told NFC World.

“We’ve known the people at Isis for some time and we have worked closely with BlackBerry for a number of years,” he added.

“For us, the partnership is a great endorsement for what we’re doing. This is a fantastic endorsement because, in the US, there is only Isis and Google Wallet active doing NFC, which is a lot different to what’s going on in Europe. This is our first real project that we’re doing stateside, and it’s a great opportunity to expand our footprint.”

Proxama has previously worked with leading brands such as Eat, KFC, EE, and Barclaycard on NFC initiatives to support consumer engagement and mobile wallets.
