The Bank is among the first to offer this secure and easy to use service in Italy
BNL, BNP Paribas Group, announces the availability of a fully electronic PIN code distribution for their cards. The service, called cl SecurPin, is provided by TAS Group – a company specialized in software solutions for e-money and cashless payments – and manages a “dematerialized” PIN code, both at issuance and in case of replacement for lost, with unrivalled benefits in regards to security and convenience.
BNL adopted this new service on Hello Mat! debit card from Hello Bank!, the BNP Paribas Group's digital bank active in Italy.
The customer gets the PIN for his card in the restricted area of the Hello Bank! site using the security codes generated from the Hello! app, which is downloadable for free on smartphones from all major app stores. In this way cl SecurPin allows quick delivery of the PIN and is much more secure than a code issued on paper, which is generally subject to the risk of theft or loss.
“BNL continues investing in innovation and technology to make its service and offering model more and more competitive,” stated Marco Tarantola, Deputy General Manager in charge of the Retail & Private Division of the BNL. “We believe that innovation, especially in an evolving industry such as banking, primarily means knowing how to propose solutions that bring concrete benefits for the customers in terms of simplicity, speed and safety for their daily professional and personal needs”.
Roberto Carlucci, Director of TAS Group’s E-Money Business Unit, said, “In depth knowledge of the architectures and core processes of banks on physical, virtual and mobile channels is one of the differentiators of TAS Group. We are very attentive to implement technological innovation in a sustainable way for our customers, taking into account the banks’ daily challenges in recovering profitability while meeting risk management and regulatory compliance.”
In addition to electronic PIN management, TAS Group’s cl SecurPin solution allows for wider scope of applications related to the use of tokens. Besides payment cards, the dematerialisation services are key in all areas affecting the digital transformation of the FinTech industry. cl SecurPin integrates with the existing BNL core systems and is fully compliant to the rigorous standards set by PCI (Payment Card Industry sector regulations) and is applied to all methodologies and technologies employed by TAS Group for the implementation of solutions for the digital payments of the future as part of their cashless 3.0™ platform.
