Samsung Pay first mobile payment solution to partner with SAP to broaden its acceptance of mobile payments to “pay at the pump” in the future
Toronto, ON (Oct. 21, 2015) – SAP SE has announced the availability of the SAP® Vehicles Network solution. It is a new cloud offering that allows enterprise companies to offer secure, convenient end-to-end vehicle- and mobility-centric services, independent of devices or vehicles. SAP Vehicles Network enables drivers in North America to share data from the Internet of Things, activate gas pumps, pay at the pump, reserve parking, open off-street parking gates and pay for on-street parking from the car through a mobile wallet or app.
The announcement was made at SAP TechEd Las Vegas, being held October 19-23 at the Venetian Palazzo Congress Center, Las Vegas.
“With SAP HANA Cloud Platform, we are providing an open platform to our customers and partners. Offering a seamless and digital experience, SAP thus is enabling the digital business. We are happy that Samsung Pay is leveraging SAP Vehicles Network based on SAP HANA Cloud Platform. With this, Samsung is accelerating market adoption of mobility services of the digital economy,” said Bernd Leukert, Member of the Executive Board of SAP SE, Products & Innovations, SAP. “In today’s digital world all lights are on green for a new digital experience – and SAP is committed to being a part of this change.”
SAP Vehicles Network harnesses the power of SAP HANA® Cloud Platform for the Internet of Things and offers member companies and partners the opportunity to create new mobility services and apps for consumer use. It improves the way drivers can benefit from mobile and geo-location services. This new end-to-end digital mobile user experience covers the entire trip, helping drivers before and after the journey as well. SAP Vehicles Network also allows app providers and automotive companies to gain access to tens of thousands of mobile payment-enabled parking garages and gas stations in key markets. Thus companies can improve the driver and passenger’s digital experience by using mobile wallets and third-party apps for an integrated in-vehicle experience.
“We are pleased to partner with SAP to bring Samsung Pay to fuel pumps in the future,” said Dr. Injong Rhee, executive vice president, Samsung Electronics. “Samsung Pay is accepted today almost anywhere you can swipe or tap your card, and we are always looking for ways to extend where consumers can use the service to everywhere they shop. Enabling Samsung Pay users to pay at the pump will further help us deliver on that promise.”
Enrolled network members in North America can take advantage of the services to deliver an improved experience for consumers. After completing successful co-innovation projects with companies like Volkswagen AG, Shell, VeriFone, Toyota Info Technology Center U.S.A. Inc., BMW AG and others, SAP partnered with Samsung Pay, Fidelity National Information Services (FIS), ZipLine and P97 Networks to deliver a seamless mobile pay-at-the-pump experience. SAP also partnered with leading parking aggregators, including, ParkWhiz, Parking Panda and others to help drivers find parking quickly, efficiently and in the area of their choice. Intelligent Mechatronic Systems (IMS) Inc., a leading connected car technology company is another network member offering connected car services for usage-based insurance and road charging with SAP Vehicle Network.
By simplifying the business process to a single click and enabling users and companies to share data in a secure manner, the SAP Vehicles Network solution provides a flexible framework for any app provider, automotive firm or oil and gas company.
