Smart PIN service enables Ditto Bank customers to access their PIN codes instantly in their banking smartphone app. A seamless customer journey means that there is no need for them to wait days to receive their PIN code, which is available immediately, and use their card. As this feature of the smartphone app can also be used for PIN reminders, the card will also be easier to use, since there is no risk of customers forgetting their PIN codes!

Ditto Bank has selected IDEMIA to work on the project from Day 1, in 2015. IDEMIA brought the new digital bank a suite of products, such as the Ditto Bank card and packaging and related Smart Services including Smart PIN, the electronic PIN solution.

Disrupting traditional banking models, Smart PIN meets Ditto Bank’s objectives: making life easier for its customers by providing an instant and borderless service.

"Digital technology has revolutionized many sectors and that continues today in the banking industry. We are delighted to instigate this change with Ditto Bank by marketing solutions that can revolutionize the customer experience. We’re looking forward to supporting Ditto in its expected international expansion as well as in launching new services," says Pierre Barrial, Executive Vice-President Financial Institutions at IDEMIA.

"We wanted to create a next-generation bank with global ambition and so it was only natural to cooperate with IDEMIA. Its unique digital solutions combined with its global presence make it a key partner in Ditto Bank’s development," added Sylvain Pignet, Ditto Bank’s CEO.
