Here goes another mobile “Pay” announcement – leveraging their large (and loyal) customer base and cards on file to launch their own mobile app. WMT will use QR codes. Should be interesting to watch the wallet wars in the coming year and if they start to drift away from MCX.
Every day I strive to enhance the experience associated with making payments and managing your money. I look for better ways to improve products and create solutions to remove the friction and simplify life. All of my past experiences trigger my desire and feeds my curiosity to work in this industry and look for innovative solutions to enhance products and services. It’s the foundation for my progress forward as a leader in the payment industry and my desire to continue to add value. It’s especially exciting to be a part of today’s technology evolution as consumers embrace mobile devices to simplify their lives, have payment flexibility and financial freedom. The launch of Apple Pay will inject new life into mobile payments and spawn new innovation into the payment world. I’m really excited about the future.

Much happening on the payment innovation front, it should be an interesting second half of the year with many new announcements in the works. More to come, stay tuned.
