Strengthening the verification process in Austria, Worldline has confirmed its backing of PSA Payment Services Austria.
Providing a technological ecosystem for new identity frameworks, the collaboration has also penned in the launch of a unique app called ich.app.
As part of the launch, the app seeks to enable consumers to easily and quickly identify themselves with a variety of online retailers, boosting efficiency in the payment journey.
David Ostah, Managing Director of PSA, commented: “In order to make our vision of a universal online identification solution for people and businesses a reality, we are entering new territory in many areas.
“This makes our collaboration with our longstanding payment processing partner in this ambitious development project all the more significant. We are delighted that Worldline will also be operating our eID services as of 2022.”
It comes as the global digitalisation of the payment sector has grown exponentially and has been mirrored in Austria, as the region adapts to a new normal following the pandemic.
Michael Steinbach, Managing Director Financial Services at Worldline, added: “We are delighted to be accompanying PSA on this new venture, providing both our experience in developing innovative mass transaction solutions for both payments and the industrial environment as well as and our proven authentication solutions. We firmly believe that PSA’s ich.app will become the eID standard in Austria in the near future.”
