OverviewSuggest Edit

Ensygnia is the company behind the award winning mobile interaction platform Onescan and are currently start-up in residence at BBC Labs - http://www.bbcwlabs.com/portfolio_page/ensygnia/.
Onescan is a mobile interaction platform for merchants who want consumers to use their mobile phones (our SDK in your app) to conveniently pay for goods and services, or collect or redeem loyalty rewards, safely and securely across any channel or at any point of sale. Uniquely, Onescan's APIs make it easy for brands and partners to integrate with online stores, traditional POS, mPOS, print media, TV & digital signage, email, packaging, even ‘stickers on your fridge’, turning anything in to a point of sale. Onescan is an agnostic platform and when it comes to Services and Partners, we don’t disrupt the existing eco-system, we just make it simpler to use for all.
Onescan is in essence an Identity and Security messaging platform which are handled seamlessly and invisibly by the Onescan platform enabling friction-less and effortless transactions across any channel and at all points-of-sale.
Identity is the new money and we believe things get interesting either end of a payment transaction, which is why we also focus on delivering Value Added Services such as Authentication, Registration and Login, Loyalty, KYC, anti-fraud, plus consumer insight and behaviour analytics through our Data Services.
In the payments world, Ensygnia Onescan allows customers to go from looking to buying in under 10 seconds.

Zero-Touch and Zero-Trust – it’s a perfect marriage

In a zero-trust environment, everyone and everything has to prove who or what it is when making a request of the network. It makes no difference whether that request is coming from outside of the network, or from someone on the inside – or at least someone appearing to be on the inside. Each req…

Cashless, contactless, in-person or remote – QR codes find their time.

This month’s Wired magazine has refreshed its opinion of the QR code from marketing gimmick to everyday essential.
