Bank of Queensland expands payments capabilities

The Bank of Queensland has collaborated with Nasdaq-listed payments technology provider, Fiserv, to enable its customers to add debit cards to their digital wallets and pay using wearables.

This is made possible through the bank’s migration to the Fiserv platform, which provides account processing and digital banking solutions.

The Fiserv technology will also allow the bank to rapidly add new services to meet its customers’ demands.

Using a digital debit card in-store enhances the customer experience. It allows customers to manage their spending and tailor their payments to their individual preferences.

Bank of Queensland notes that it’s important to keep up to date with the ever-changing payments environment.

Customers are seeking more flexible ways to pay for goods, as well as the ability to tap quickly for operational support.

Bank of Queensland will also use Fiserv to streamline new card issuance and management of both its physical and digital cards.

Fiserv general manager in Australia and New Zealand Kees Kwakernaak commented:

Digital transformation is an ongoing process driven by customer expectations and emerging technology. With this move to cloud-based debit card management, Bank of Queensland is positioned to meet the needs of the current market and adapt quickly to meet changing demands in the rapidly evolving payments space.
