The Group launched its first mobile payment program in France in July 2016 followed by Spain in December 2016 for Ticket Restaurant card users, and will soon also be implementing the payment system in Italy for ExpendiaSmart card holders. In Sweden, Edenred introduced Samsung Pay in March 2017 and will shortly extend the solution to Brazil. Edenred is also developing its own solutions in Finland, Italy, Slovakia and Taiwan.

We are continuing to develop our strategic plan, which in particular aims to turn digital technology into a powerful growth driver. More than ever, we are making technological innovation and the customer experience the focus of our development” said Bertrand Dumazy, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Edenred Group.
