How the voice card works

SBS will leverage its network of over 1,500 banks and financial institutions to scale HandSome’s voice cardto a much wider audience of consumers. The voice card acts as a connected device that vocalises the amount shown on a store’s point of sales terminal to the individual through their smartphone and enables them to validate the transaction with a secret code.

Eric Bierry, CEO of Sopra Banking Software, said: “Sopra Banking is committed to ensuring that our products are accessible to everyone, everywhere, anytime. This partnership with HandSome marks a crucial step in our mission to bring inclusive banking solutions to the forefront.”

Julien Delamorte, Founder & CEO of HandSome, added: “We are thrilled to partner with Sopra Banking Software in our shared commitment to inclusivity. Our voice card technology has the potential to transform the lives of countless individuals, and this partnership will help us reach even more people.”
