Integrated E-Money Solution

An E-money Solution Implemented Quickly over the Cloud

NEC's “Integrated E-money Solution” consists of three primary elements: 1. “E-money servers”, 2. “E-money payment terminals”, and 3. “E-money media”.

  1. E-money servers
    These manage prepaid e-money issuing, e-money transactions and balances, user accounts, and settlement as a cloud service. In addition to the cloud-based solution, servers can also be installed on the customer's premises.
  2. E-money payment terminals
    These are used by stores to read information from e-money media.
  3. E-money media
    These include cards, mobile phones and smartphone applications for when users make payments.
Stores can also issue private-brand e-money, which helps to increase the number of repeat visitors and encourage customer loyalty.
