|April 7, 2014 04:00 AM EDT
TSYS (NYSE: TSS) announced today that its leading Vietnamese client,
Vietnam Export Import Commercial Joint Stock Bank — Vietnam Eximbank,
has begun to deploy fingerprint authentication technology for
over-the-counter or ATM transactions.
Vietnam Eximbank is one of the first banks in Vietnam to apply this
technology that enables customers to make a transaction without having
the physical card, ID, phone or card number present for identification,
and uses only fingerprint verification when performing transactions at
the counter or at the ATM.
As a client of TSYS since 2003, Vietnam Eximbank licenses TSYS’ PRIME
single-platform payment processing solution to manage its issuing,
acquiring and payment acceptance services. The rollout of Eximbank’s
Transaction Identification and Authentication solution was enabled by
leveraging Fingerprint Technology solutions and supporting technology
within TSYS PRIME ATM controller and online secure authentication
Vietnam Eximbank is planning to extend the biometric solution to
point-of-sale networks where fingerprints can be used instead of ID and
payment cards. It plans to make these types of transactions common
across Vietnam by working with other banks in the country to build
acceptance of its fingerprint authentication solution as the de facto
standard deployed across the national switch.
“Ease of payments is central to the Eximbank vision of financial
inclusion and the implementation of transaction identification and
authentication with the support of TSYS and Fingerprint Technology is
key to achieving this objective,” said Mr. Mitsuaki Shiogo, vice
“Eximbank’s initiatives in launching card-not-present, fingerprint
authenticated transactions, demonstrate that it is a leading innovator
of advanced banking technologies in the Asia Pacific region,” said Amit
Sethi, managing director of Asia, Middle East and Africa, TSYS
International. “We are delighted to be working closely with the bank and
supporting its financial inclusion strategy, sharing the extensive
strengths of our licensed PRIME solution combined with our expertise as
a leading global payment solutions provider.”
PRIME has an extensive footprint throughout Asia, Europe, CIS, the
Middle East and Africa. It has a proven track record in Asia dating back
to 1992 and its footprint extends across more than 70 countries.
