Visitors to the center will start their journey at “home” and then will be immersed in some daily life environments simulating innovative and customer-centric in-branch and in-store experiences. The tour features identity acquisition and verification based on identity documents such as the U.S. driver’s license and applicant face recognition. As the journey continues visitors who are enrolled will have the opportunity to experience the future of banking and retail from a living room, in a coffee shop or in a gaming area, interacting with sophisticated iris, face and contactless fingerprint technologies. The future of Telecom and IoT will also be showcased with the latest in eSIM, subscription management and secure elements.

Speed, convenience and security drive us to develop solutions that make life safer and easier for consumers who want to subscribe, connect, transfer, shop and pay in a seamless and frictionless way whatever the channel,” Jullien added.
Biometric implementation brings consistency in the user experience. Whatever biometric capabilities are integrated in a branch, embedded into a smartphone or implemented in a facility to capture modalities on the move, the technology meets consumer expectations and provider security requirements.
“We are creating a collaborative environment that will enable OT-Morpho to foster innovation and engage with a broad range of clients and partners to disrupt and ease consumer journey,” Jullien concludes.
