Canadian telco Telus has teamed up with Syniverse to enable its subscribers to secure the credit card purchases of its subscribers while traveling overseas.
Syniverse said that its Mobile Intelligence Portal solution provides "mobile context", based on information about customers’ mobile characteristics, like where they go, their current geographic location, what mobile channels they use and how they prefer to make purchases.
The ‘mobile context’ provided by the solution enables purchases to be verified in a simple and hassle-free manner by simply confirming that the sale or purchase is taking place where the subscriber’s mobile device is located.
Telus senior vice president of consumer marketing, Brent Johnston, said: "Our work with Syniverse combined with TELUS travel passes and roaming notifications give customers the confidence to use their payment cards and mobile services anywhere they travel."
Transaction processor Syniverse connects over 1,500 mobile service providers, enterprises, ISPs and OTTs in approximately 200 nations and territories.
