Banking CIO Outlook | Tuesday, July 06, 2021

Antelop continues implementing successful projects in its partnership with Quipu, an IT solutions provider for banks and financial institutions, with operations across Europe and LATAM.

Quipu Processing Center processes both Visa and Mastercard cards for more than 30 banks around the world, split between issuing for the in-house banking group ProCredit and for third-party financial institutions.

As a first step in the collaboration, Quipu used Antelop technology for the implementation of NFC mobile payment, supporting Quipu customers in offering latest payment solutions to its clients, alongside the mobile banking application, which is available in several countries.

The Antelop SDK enriches the Quipu applications offered to the customers with a white-label NFC Issuer Wallet, including instant card digitization and NFC payments, allowing the banks to offer a fully digital payment and mobile banking experience.

The Antelop Digital Card platform was selected by Quipu as it enables both Visa and Mastercard cards for mobile payments,including debit, credit and prepaid cards. The solution, which was first put live in 2020, is now in progress of implementation in several countries around the world – after customers from Kosovo, North Macedonia, or Ecuador, more will follow in different area of operations of Quipu.
