Reliance Jio has teamed up with employee benefits provider Sodexo, under which they will harness their complementary strengths to facilitate digital transactions across various retail point of sales such as grocery stores, restaurants and cafes.
Under the partnership, users will be able to link their Sodexo Meal cards with JioMoney, which is a wallet provided by Jio Payments Bank.
Following the integration, users can make purchases by adding the Sodexo Meal Card balance to the Jio Money app, thereby phasing out the requirement of carrying Sodexo physical cards.
Jio Money business head Anirban Mukherjee said: “The integration will bring convenience and new digital transaction options for both Jio Money and Sodexo users in India. Going forward both brands will leverage core strengths, develop synergies and expand their reach and presence in India’s growing digital ecosystem.”
Sodexo benefits and rewards services India CEO added: “With this partnership, Jio Money’s MPOS system will help segregate the food & non–food items among standalone, smaller merchants, which will further strengthen Sodexo’s position as a compliant meal benefit solution in the country.”
The solution has currently been rolled out in Mumbai, with a broader rollout planned across the nation later.
