C-SAM has signed an agreement to provide ISIS with its wallet management platform and software development kit (SDK).
According to C-SAM, the platform will enable ISIS to offer smart phone users a “comprehensive mobile wallet” for conducting NFC-enabled transactions and other services.
C-SAM’s says its SDK will also enable independent service providers to build their own applications for NFC transactions as well as remote over-the-air services. These services may include anything from payments and ticketing to parking and health care.
According to C-SAM, this approach will allow Isis to rapidly build its open mobile commerce platform in the U.S.
Michael Abbott, CEO of Isis, comments: “C-SAM’s platform provides coverage across various carrier networks, operating systems, and NFC handsets, ensuring Isis can rapidly scale. Together with C-SAM, Isis will allow consumers to experience a new and secure way to shop, pay and save, all with the tap of their phone.”
Isis, which announced its formation in November 2010, is currently gearing up for its debut in Salt Lake City and Austin, Texas early next year.
