Customers can view their reward point status, book appointments, send and receive messages from their stylist, and also access an exclusive e-commerce site where they can shop at the salon. Contactless payment service powered by DNP technology is planned to be included in the “Salon de Wallet” as soon as NFC infrastructure is in place. DNP is one of Japan’s leading vendors of smart cards and trusted service management (TSM) solutions, ensuring seamless integration with the C-SAM mobile transaction platform (MTP). HyperSoft, C-SAM and DNP are aiming to expand the customer base for “Salon de Wallet” to 2.5 million users, and plan to extend deployment of the application into the Asian market. “We are exceedingly proud to be selected by a company of DNP’s international reputation as their partner in this well-conceived and powerful offering.
