PVR Ltd today announced its first ‘NFC enabled PVR Wallet’ app for the BlackBerry 10 platform. The NFC enabled PVR Wallet app is a ‘Closed Loop Payment Wallet’ where the rights to use the transaction money remains within the premises of PVR cinemas.
Empowered with the innovative NFC technology and NEC’s Integrated E-money solution, moviegoers can now ‘tap & pay’ for movie tickets and refreshments without using paper money across 15 PVR cinemas in cities like Delhi & NCR, Chennai, Mumbai, Chandigarh, Pune, Hyderabad, and Bangalore.
PVR app has been bolstered by NEC India, which is the supporting backend provider for ‘PVR Wallet’. NEC India has provided an end-to-end cloud-based e-payment system called NFC e-Money server to PVR that integrates itself facilitating interactivity between devices (the NFC enabled phone and PVR wallet access), for any monetary transactions.
