Silicon Valley: Rizzardini speaking at GMIC

Our VP Mobile Payments, Paolo Rizzardini, will be speaking at one of the panels at GMIC, Silicon Valley’s largest mobile conference held on 22-23 October.

On 23 October, from 3:45 PM to 4:30 PM, Paolo will discuss remote mobile payments and the future of direct carrier billing, explaining how convergence of DCB with other mobile payment flows under one platform can boost revenue from any digital content. Our execs Paolo Francula, Massimo Cristini and Ante Ukalovic are also attending the event, so don’t hesitate to have a chat with them as well.

Mobile definitely has a central role in the future of payments. We can say that mobile payments, DCB in particular, are a global phenomenon even if still focused mainly on digital content. The near future of those payment options is in combining different technologies and payment flows in a single platform. That means that remote mobile payments will depend on service provider technology, end-user habits and specific market know-how. This strategy standardises user experience and uses all the advantages of locally accepted and highly trusted payment methods
