More Accessible Payments for all

Why does making payments more accessible matter?

Payments shall be easier for everyone. According to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, investing in accessibility and social sustainability solutions is crucial to success and can form a significant part of banks’ and financial institutions’ overall ESG strategy.

Empowering customers through accessible and seamless payment technologies.

Every consumer wants easy, convenient and secure payments, but they are not created uniform: they have different needs and requirements to reach a convenient payment journey. For banks, it’s important that their services and technologies are as accessible as possible, and where customers need additional support to complete their payment journey, technology can step in to bridge the gap.


Access to payments for everyone

In our diverse society, a ‘one size fits all’ approach to making payments means that certain groups in the society may face more challenges in accessing services or making transactions. As the population gets older across many countries, for example, new challenges and demands occur in payment journey design.

Here at G+D, we believe that every single individual shall be able to make payments easily and securely. This is also a matter of respect and recognition of each individual. In designing tools and solutions to offer more fitting alternatives to those with disabilities or impairments, our technology can help in many circumstances to make payments more accessible.

How can we help banks to offer more and better?

Making physical payments seamless 

Convego® Sense-Dot card

These embossed bumps, applied to the card at the point of personalization help customers differentiate between different cards in their wallets – for example, a customer’s credit card might have a different pattern of bumps than their debit card.

Notch card

This simple change - a crescent shape cut out of one side of the card - helps customers more easily identify the correct orientation for cards for insertion into ATMs and terminals.

Convego® YOU Biometric card

Cards protected with biometric security remove the need for customers to use  passwords, PINs, a mobile device to authenticate their transactions – which can help customers make payments without needing to memorize and enter their PIN.

Convego® ClearView card

With this service, banks can print the cardholder’s PAN, expiry, name, and CVV in large and high contrast print to make it easier to read and make payments, great for those that might struggle to read a smaller print or embossed detail.

Convego® Braille (Card and Mailer)

Your payment card can be accompanied by both the traditional carrier and – in braille format – a document that helps customers with visual impairments understand the information contained on the user’s payment card and mailer.

Making digital and mobile payments easier

Convego® AUTH-U

Convego® AUTH-U is a highly secure, seamless, and biometric-based solution that enables digital payments to be authenticated without passwords or PINs. It empowers customers to authenticate through multiple biometric options - face, voice, iris, or fingerprint - or even combine them for increased security.

Convego® CloudPay HCE (with G+D Assist)
