When the Car Becomes the Card
Payment cards are giving way to mobile payment apps, improving the customer experience. In the car, the process of finding and paying for fuel, food, parking and much more can be linked to navigation and payment apps, resulting in a single, easy experience for the end user. In addition, mobile payment apps also offer added security, given provisioning methods, tokenized card numbers and the elimination of the physical card swipe.
This panel of experts from WEX, Enterprise Fleet Management, Amazon Alexa Auto and Honda Innovations will discuss how these apps are moving beyond the phone to the vehicle’s dash, an evolution that will further streamline the payment process. They will also consider the improved efficiency the connected car world promises and will provide their answers to the key question: How will vehicles and payments get along?
