Italian mobile-phone operator PosteMobile is using technology from France-based smart card vendor Gemalto to enable customers of BancoPosta to make payments using their mobile phones. BancoPosta is the retail-banking division of the Italian post office. The software enables BancoPosta customers to pay bills, send telegrams and faxes, and wire funds from accounts and prepaid cards, a PosteMobile statement says. The software also enables PosteMobile to design services, monitor their use and adopt them to the consumer's preferences over the air, a Gemalto spokesperson tells CardLine Global. The software enables customers to perform a large number of postal and banking services using only one SIM card, and it works on any handset, the spokesperson adds.
