Mastercard joins hands with Flipkart; makes payments secure for online buyers

MasterCard

Online Shopping

Barcelona, Spain - February 27, 2018 - At Mobile World Congress today, Mastercard announced that Flipkart will be the first merchant in the Asia Pacific region to launch ‘Mastercard Digital Enablement Services (MDES) for Merchants’. The service will enable the card issuing banks to replace Mastercard credit, debit and prepaid card primary account numbers with secure digital tokens. These tokens will allow the merchants to offer enhanced security and customer experience. This announcement not only strengthens Mastercard and Flipkart’s partnership, but also exemplifies both organizations’ efforts to decrease fraud on e-commerce channels.

Storing card information in apps and online is popular among merchants and consumers to reduce checkout friction, enable subscription-based services and recurring payments. However, the security of transactions is extremely important. MDES provides an extra layer of security. In case of token compromise, MDES blocks the transaction, thus eliminating any chance of a fraud. If a device is lost or physical card is compromised, the link in MDES between the tokens and the card/device can be broken - and reissued for the new token or the card- without troubling the consumer.

For better customer experience, it gives cardholders the choice and peace of mind to make secure digital payments from a variety of connected devices through a tap, touch, or click. Moreover, the customer does not need to update the tokens stored with various merchants when a card number or its expiration date changes.

“Flipkart has been at the forefront of payment innovations that have led and accelerated the adoption of e-commerce in India. Through the implementation of the Mastercard Digital Enablement Services, we are happy to introduce our customers to a simple, convenient and secure payment method, create a safe ecosystem and provide superior experiences for them,” said Ranjith Boyanapalli, Vice President of Product at Flipkart.

“We are delighted to partner with Flipkart, the pioneer of India’s e-commerce Industry, to roll out the industry-leading MDES for merchants. Our research indicates that security of payment and convenience are some of the key factors considered during online shopping by consumers. Mastercard tokenization will eliminate a significant ‘hassle factor’ for consumers and offer enhanced security,” said James Anderson, Executive Vice President, Digital Payment Products at Mastercard.

The Flipkart Group is India’s largest e-commerce marketplace and includes group companies Flipkart, Myntra, Jabong and PhonePe.

Propelled by rising smartphone penetration, the launch of 4G networks and increasing consumer wealth, the Indian e-commerce industry has been on an upward growth trajectory and is expected to surpass the U.S. to become the second largest e-commerce market in the world by 2034.

Renault Captur available for sale in India

Renault

New Delhi, September 22, 2017: The list of countries where Renault’s successful SUV is marketed has been extended to include India. Captur was designed and developed by an international technical team which was tasked with proposing a versatile vehicle featuring a bespoke styling/equipment-specification package for the Indian market. Captur production is already under way in Chennai plant.

Over the last five years, Renault has taken significant measures to promote its growth in India through the way it is structured locally, its sales network and its model range. Thanks to this work, it has emerged as one of the fastest-growing automobile brands in India and Renault Captur’s launch marks a new phase in this strong product strategy.

Within few years, Renault’s footing in India has gained significant ground in just a short period of time to become the country’s number one European brand. The launch of Renault Captur will be backed by an expansion of the network’s coverage. In May 2011, the number of Renault sales outlets stood at just 14. The figure now exceeds 300 and is poised to rise further before the end of 2017.

Coca-Cola Zero Sugar Launches in U.S. with New and Improved Real Coca-Cola Taste

Coca-Cola Zero Sugar

ATLANTA - July 26, 2017 - According to The Coca-Cola Company, since its 2005 introduction, Coca-Cola Zero has refreshed hundreds of millions of fans across America with its real Coca-Cola taste and zero calories. From its U.S. introduction into the Coca-Cola trademark brand portfolio to its global expansion, the brand is sold in nearly 160 countries around the world.

Now, through in-house innovation and extensive market testing, Coca-Cola Zero is getting a new name, new look and even more delicious taste, said the company. The no-calorie fan favorite will deliver an even better-tasting recipe and now be called “Coca-Cola Zero Sugar”.

“More than 10 years ago, we launched Coca-Cola Zero with a revolutionary recipe that gave fans real Coca-Cola taste without the sugar and calories. The brand grew strongly after its launch and gained millions of loyal fans over time, but we recognized an opportunity to give the brand another boost and to encourage more Coca-Cola fans to try a great-tasting zero-sugar product,” said Stuart Kronauge, business unit president, USA Operations and senior vice president, Marketing, Coca-Cola North America.

“We’ve used our in-house innovation capabilities to make the great taste of Coke Zero even better and a lot like a Coke. To achieve this, we optimized the unique blend of flavors that gave Coke Zero its real Coca-Cola taste in the new and improved Coca-Cola Zero Sugar recipe. It’s delicious, refreshing and our best-tasting zero-sugar Coca-Cola yet,” Kronauge continued.

As the company continues to create new beverages and evolve its recipes, Coca-Cola Zero Sugar represents the company’s latest zero-sugar product innovation. It joins a roster of nearly 250 other delicious no- and low-calorie beverages offered in the U.S.

This U.S. launch builds on the success and popularity of Coca-Cola Zero Sugar already seen in Great Britain, Mexico and more than 25 other markets around the world, the company said.

Geneva, March 7, 2017: F1 racing legend and Indy 500 champion, Emerson Fittipaldi, unveiled his dream track car, the much-anticipated Fittipaldi EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina, at the Geneva Motor Show today.

The ultra-light, all carbon fiber supercar fuses the vision of F1 and Indy Car racing champion Fittipaldi, iconic Italian design company Pininfarina and race-bred German engineering firm HWA AG, and fulfills Fittipaldi’s dream to produce a car with fierce track-racing capabilities, for drivers of all skill levels.

“I have tried for years to explain to others what it truly feels like to be behind the steering wheel of a championship racecar. There is adrenaline and elation all rolled into an awe-inspiring inner fulfillment that leaves you craving for more. This is what our dream team created in the EF7 Vision Gran Turismo by Pininfarina,” said Fittipaldi of the first car to be released under the Fittipaldi Motors marque.

Revealing a commandingly sleek design underscored by an extraordinary power-to-weight ratio, the supercar’s design theme finds astounding aerodynamic expression in the vehicle’s flowing, aggressive lines and assertive yet incredibly beautiful and pure design work.

MasterCard Contactless

MasterCard Contactless

New Delhi, India - Mastercard has announced its partnership with Pine Labs, the largest payment facilitator for electronic Point of Sale (PoS) solutions in India to roll out more than 26,000 contactless terminals across the key merchant stores in the country over the next 12 months.

Powered by Mastercard contactless technology, the merchants across Quick Service Restaurants (QSR), retail stores, cinemas and super markets will now be able to offer contactless terminals as an alternative method of payment to customers, allowing them greater ease and convenience of payments. The contactless payments solution will also help merchants build greater efficiency in managing their costs and time by way of reducing check-out time at the counters and costs related to handling of cash.

Cashless transactions are on the rise, driven by increasing availability of contactless cards and introduction of new forms of payment technology in the country.

“Mastercard’s contactless technology offers cardholders multi-level protection coupled with speed and convenience. Mastercard contactless payments are accepted at more than 3 million merchant locations in 77 countries worldwide. Our partnership with Pine Labs will help us build a safe and secure contactless payments ecosystem in the country. This is aligned with Mastercard’s vision of a world beyond cash and using technology to make payments safer, simpler and smarter for the consumers.” said Murali Nair, Senior Vice President, Market Development, South Asia, Mastercard.

Mastercard has been at the forefront of driving contactless payments globally. Contactless payments allow customers to make everyday purchases by simply tapping their contactless-enabled card or device on a contactless-enabled reader. Contactless acceptance is an excellent choice for any merchant, especially in environments where speed and convenience are valued and cash is currently the dominant payment method, such as fast food outlets, supermarkets, quick-service restaurants, convenience stores, and vending machines.

More than 60,000 Retailers across India depend on Pine Labs to securely and reliably manage their Payment Acceptance. Pine Labs payment solutions simplify acceptance of all kinds of payments at PoS terminals, be it Credit/Debit Cards, EMI, Reward Points, Gift Vouchers, or e-Wallet.

City Traffic: Audi networks with Traffic Lights in the USA

Audi Traffic

If you know in advance when a traffic light will switch from red to green, your driving is more relaxed and efficient. Audi is the first automobile brand to connect the car to the city infrastructure - an important step towards autonomous driving. In Las Vegas, starting immediately, the Audi A4 and Q7 models can display traffic-light phases directly in the car. Further U.S. cities will follow, and introduction of the system is planned in Europe. Traffic Light Information optimizes traffic flow, saves valuable time and reduces environmental impact.

Audi of America is cooperating with several cities in North America to upgrade the infrastructure for V2I technology. “For the first time, our cars are exchanging data with traffic infrastructure in real time. Drivers can adapt their behavior to the situation and move through city traffic in a much more relaxed and controlled way,” says Andreas Reich, head of Electronics Pre-Development at AUDI AG. “We increase energy efficiency when we connect our Audi models to smart cities. Further V2I services will follow, making the car into an interactive mobile device. We see autonomous driving as the end of this development.”

As a first step, all Audi A4 and Q7 models produced for the U.S. market since June 2016 and equipped with Audi connect will have this function on board. In the USA, municipal traffic management centers will communicate the traffic-light data to Audi’s project partner Traffic Technology Services TTS. Here the data are prepared and sent to the on-board computer in the Audi via a fast Internet connection, for example 4G/LTE, in real time.

The first function of the Traffic Light Information V2I component is called Time-to-Green. In the Audi virtual cockpit or head-up display, drivers see whether they will reach the next light on green while traveling within the permitted speed limit. If not, a countdown is provided of the time remaining until the next green phase - and drivers can take their foot off the gas pedal in good time. Pilot projects in Europe have shown that drivers exercise more foresight thanks to this information about traffic lights. This has a beneficial overall effect on traffic flow. “In our tests the the number of cars that had to brake to a standstill in traffic fell by around 20 percent. This saved time for the driver and also made fuel savings of about 15 percent in the pilot project,” says Michael Zweck, project manager for Audi Traffic Light Information.

First of all, Audi customers will use this service. The development work that Audi is investing in traffic-light systems will also benefit customers of other brands in future. The increasing spread of the technology will help city traffic planners to understand the causes of hold-ups and optimize the phasing of traffic lights.

In future Traffic Light Information could be linked up to smart navigation and used for new powering concepts. For example, “green waves” in traffic-light sequences could be incorporated in route planning. It is also conceivable that Audi e-tron models could make greater use of braking energy by charging the battery as they decelerate at a red light.

Audi also intends to introduce the technology in Europe. In Berlin, Ingolstadt, Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Verona there have already been extensive pilot projects. In Berlin alone, some 700 traffic lights in the inner city have been connected to the service. Across Europe, however, unified data standards and digital infrastructure do not exist: “In Europe highly diverse traffic technology is in use, as the infrastructure has developed locally and decentrally. We are working on harmonization of the data that have been prepared. After that has been done, we can provide Traffic Light Information in Europe too,” Michael Zweck announced.

Mumbai, India - November 15, 2016 — Boasting a specially developed four-cylinder engine, the new Porsche Macan made its highly anticipated national debut at a press conference at the Taj Lands End in Mumbai today. The arrival marks the latest addition to the sports car manufacturer’s model range now available in the country, following the recent introduction of the new 911.

Under the bonnet, the Macan features a turbocharged two-litre engine. With 252 hp (185 kW) from 5,000 to 6,800 rpm and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.5 seconds (when equipped with the optional Sport Chrono Package), the model demonstrates its true sports car capabilities. With an unladen weight of 1,770 kilograms, the Macan is the lightest SUV made by Porsche, which translates into agile handling.

The high standards of the Macan are raised further in the new model thanks to the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission, latest generation Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and variety of distinctive interior and exterior features delivered as standard.

Commenting on the arrival of the new model, Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India, said: “The new addition to the Macan range further evolves an already exceptional sports car line-up in the compact SUV range to new heights, at an attractive price. With a specially tailored engine, sporty design accents and cutting edge technology, the Macan is the definition of a five-door sports car, remaining true to its concept as a car built for a life of adventure. This compact SUV packs just as much punch, and the same outstanding drive comfort, as you would expect from any Porsche.”

The company explained that the four-cylinder turbocharged engine of the entry-level Macan was specifically tailored to the model, ensuring sporty and efficient performance. Its powerful 370 Nm of torque, available between 1,600 rpm and 4,500 rpm, allows for fast overtaking manoeuvres. This is made possible by the engine’s two bar of boost pressure, charge-air cooling, petrol direct injection and variable valve timing.

Delivering characteristically sporty driving dynamics in the new model is the standard Porsche Traction Management (PTM) active all-wheel drive system. It comprises of an electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR). The electronically controlled multi-plate clutch regulates the distribution of drive force between the rear axle and the front axle. Driving conditions are constantly monitored to enable a precise and lightning-quick response to a variety of situations.

The Macan also features the electronically controlled Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). The PASM shock absorber adjustment system increases driving pleasure, safety and comfort. It automatically regulates the damper force on the front and rear axles. Depending on the road condition and driving style, PASM optimally reduces body movements - on gentle stretches, when driving off-road and even when adopting a more dynamic driving style with strong acceleration and braking phases such as on race tracks.

According to Porsche, distinguishing design characteristics and an extensive list of standard equipment make the new Macan an attractive offer for customers in India. Accentuating design elements include side window trim strips and brake callipers in black, the latter shielded behind 18-inch wheels, alongside an exhaust system with two single tailpipes made of brushed stainless steel. In line with many of the S models, the Macan has comfort seats with electric eight-way adjustment on the driver’s side, Alcantara middle seat panels, a lane-departure warning system and a powered tailgate.

The new turbocharged four-cylinder Porsche Macan is now available for sale at Porsche Centres across India.
