Edenred Tests Biometric Mastercard in Mexico

Edenred provides payment services to 830,000 corporate and government clients in 45 countries. Since March of this year, Edenred has worked with its client, the state of Sonora, to test a contact-type biometric (fingerprint) Mastercard product tied to a government benefit program. There are 100 people in the test, which will conclude in June.

The Mastercard cards are manufactured by Idemia and use sensor modules from Idex Biometrics. They use the Mastercard biometric card specification.

Edenred has a direct issuer license in Mexico, where it also provides prepaid cards for food vouchers and retail spending.

Edenred managed $31.46 billion (€28 billion) in payment volume last year. That volume was initiated via mobile, online, card, and paper voucher formats.

The company has three business lines—Employee Benefits (food, meals, well-being, leisure, culture), Fleet and Mobility (fuel, tools, maintenance, business travel), and Complementary Solutions (corporate payments, incentives and rewards, and public social programs).

Collectively, these business units facilitated 2.50 billion payment transactions last year.

Edenred completed a $600-million acquisition of U.S.-based Corporate Spending Innovations (CSI) and that company’s subsidiaries in January of this year. That month it also completed a $123.5-million (£95 million) acquisition of 80% of the share capital of U.K.-based The Right Fuelcard (TRFC) company.

CSI provides automated corporate payment software in North America to top brands. Customers can automate 100% of business-to-business (B2B) payables, including virtual credit card, ghost card, proprietary network, ACH, check, or foreign exchange with cross-border payments settled in local currency.

CSI is a certified Mastercard processor and holds Visa Ready for Business Solutions approval.

TRFC, which supports 150,000 cardholders, ranks fourth largest among fuel card providers in the U.K.
