Allstar Selects Oberthur Technologies to Support the Migration of Their Fuel Cards from Magnetic Stripe to EMV Chip Cards
Sep 29 15
Oberthur Technologies announced its selection by Allstar to support the migration of their fuel cards from magnetic stripe to EMV chip cards. Allstar’s 1.1 million cardholders will benefit from payment security and ease-of-use over more than 7,600 filling stations all across the UK. In Europe, EMV migration is completed for payment cards issued by banks, thus protected against fraud, including in the UK where EMV has proven its efficiency. But there are still a lot of other payment cards, issued by various types of retail players (fuel/fleet, supermarkets, luncheon vouchers, etc.) that are still using magstripe technology. Those issuers thus become at risk and are the potential next targets for fraudsters. This is why Allstar has decided to improve the security and enhance the capability of their cards by choosing to implement EMV in their new generation of fuel cards. OT is assisting for EMV setup and artwork design, and provides the cards and personalization from its WISE offering. This range of OT services will contribute to reinforce the security of Allstar cards against fraud as well as simplifying the deployment and the shopping experience throughout the network. With WISE (White label, Independent, Secure, EMV), OT offers products and solutions dedicated to domestic payment or ATM schemes, retailers, fuel retailers, etc. wishing to migrate from magnetic stripe to chip cards to take advantage of all the benefits of EMV (security and interoperability) to enjoy a simplified, safer shopping experience.
