We are delighted to join forces to launch the first mobile wallet service in the country ” said Pierre Barrial, Managing Director of the Mobile Network Operators business at OT. “Our platform provides a high level of convenience while remaining very secure, relying on a number of advanced mechanisms, including voice, pin and phone authentication ”.
