Greenpark based its contactless prepaid payment solution for recharging stations
serving electronic and hybrid vehicles on Cashless technology offered by Atos
Paris, 13 November 2012 - Atos Worldline, Atos core expertise in High-Tech
Transactional Services, has been chosen by Greenpark, an expert in managing
recharging stations for electric vehicles and rechargeable hybrids, for its
expertise in the field of contactless payment. Atos Worldline is supporting
Greenpark throughout the
entire process, from card issue to payment management.
Focusing specifically on micro-payment, the KiWhi Pass solution created by
Greenpark and developed by Atos Worldline simplifies the life of users by giving
them an Internet and mobile recharging solution and a consumption monitoring
tool. It also enables Greenpark to learn more about its customers and to offer
personalised deals to both users and managers of recharging stations.
This new payment solution can be used to pay at any of the ever expanding number
of recharging stations within France and across Europe; without the need for
additional infrastructure. KiWhi Pass, based on the Cashless solution from Atos
Worldline, was designed to be interoperable and to facilitate the use of a
single card by both electronic vehicle users and recharging station operators.
"We have assigned the development of the KiWhi Pass, our payment and management
solution for recharging stations for electric vehicles and rechargeable hybrids,
to Atos Worldline to ensure secure payment flows thanks to their expertise in
electronic banking," says Thierry Meignan, Chairman of Greenpark Solution.
The solution includes a back office tool for Greenpark enabling it to trace
financial flows, propose personalised offers and monitor user statistics.
Moreover, the prepaid solution provides Greenpark with a guarantee as to the
solvency of its customers.
About Greenpark Solution
Greenpark Solution was founded in 2011 and has since developed an expertise in
managing recharging stations for electric vehicles and rechargeable hybrids.
Faced with the complete absence of a micro-payment solution for electric vehicle
recharging, whether on company premises for employees or EV fleets, co-owned
stations intended for vehicle renters and owners or stations on public routes or
at shopping centres, the company designed the KiWhi Pass solution. Recognised as
an innovative company by OSEO, then subsequently issuer of electronic money by
Banque de France, Greenpark Solution is now working with the entire sector to
promote this solution which provides interoperability between all stations
across the country. It is working to increase its field of expertise to all
countries interested in this form of payment for service.
