Have more questions?

Most customers are aware of the potential of digital transformation and the need for
accurate, immediate information. Our goal is to help you with online education and tools
so you can develop your project and learn what is required.

Fundamentally, the data elements of your existing identification cards are transferred
over to the litecard wallet/pass field layout. This can be mapped and integration
performed via use of published APIs.

This allows you to maintain control over your data and protect privacy.

You continue to have responsibility and control over all member and customer data that
connects to and works with the litecard platform.

We simply allow this data to be sent to a digital wallet and create the User Interface (UI)
that engages your members. No sensitive data needs to be distributed or stored outside
of your control.

Our approach is to use modern methods and technology to enable user access and
functionality without the need to download an app. People are getting tired of needing
to access stores, enroll, sign up and wait for downloads.

With litecard, enrolment and activation are immediate. Users enjoy the ease and
convenience of this new approach.

Through understanding the in built wallet architecture available off the shelf on most
phones, we can map the user interface to enable identification, credentials, links and
messages to be sent and managed directly onto the home screen.

This creates a powerful new channel of engagement for users that they will find friendly,
fast and convenient. Instant messaging (IM) is more interactive and personal than just
pushing out text messages or emails. IM allows you to understand what messages are
read, encourage immediate responses and actions and monitor results.

This enables organisations to deliver dynamic and real-time content to users.

Our architecture is cloud based and developed for scale, flexibility and speed.
By using cloud services, we are easy to integrate with and manage. Mobile users are
familiar with connecting to web services via the cloud and generally people are very
confident of performing this type of task.

As wallet technology continues to be adopted and used for day-to-day tasks such as
payment and access, people will embrace the extra content that you can enable.

No, we are payment independent and agnostic. Most wallet stories to date have
evolved around payment. Instead, our focus is on improving engagement.

People want content that is easier to access, always up to date and always available.

You can learn and evolve your strategies to better service your members and promote
your brand value through instant messaging and smart links in the wallet.

We recognise that some people take time to change and adopt new ways of doing
things. While we expect a transition plan to be established so you can offer those using
cards (or apps) to continue for a period of time.

By introducing new services and promoting your new digital engagement service, we
believe most members will want to take advantage of the new experiences.

Some organisations have already invested in an App. If there is strong acceptance, you
could run litecard in parallel with use of the App. However, we are seeing App usage
and activation drop off plus it’s complex and expensive to maintain Apps across all the
potential devices your user base has in their hands.

Therefore, there is the opportunity to transition to a new, more personal, timely and
interactive approach to engagement.

Wallets are evolving and do offer value. However, the different versions and types of
wallets are different. What works for you is a consistent user experience where all
members can perform the same functions and engage specifically with your brand,
messages and links.

This is a key goal. The opportunity is to learn quickly what members want. Our
experience shows that always available links and information make it easy for members
to consider and act. You obtain the data from these preferences and decisions and in
turn fine tune your programs to offer and deliver what members want the most.

Security is a key consideration and we have provided some papers on this subject to
ensure our customers understand the various considerations. Firstly, there is the cloud
environment and therefore we have detailed AWS’s position on cloud security. Next, is
the mobile network and gateways used to communicate with mobile devices. Again,
there is a specific security gateway paper. Then there is the actual member data and
we have given you information about how litecard ensures you have control over
privacy, member data and ongoing lifecycle management of this data.

User data is stored securely on AWS servers across the world which have industry standard data and physical security. Certain clients request data to be stored on premises or via edge cloud configurations. Data is encrypted at rest and on transit using 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standards (AES-256). 

  • Mobile wallets are OS based platforms for storing financial instruments and other documents such as credit cards, bank information, and even driver’s licenses.
  • Most smartphones come loaded with mobile wallets.
  • Devices supported include: IOS (above and including iPhone 5) and Android (above Android 8.0+)
  • Certain Mac and iPads support IOS and Google Wallet can be accessed via the browser.
  • Mobile wallets use near-field communication technology, which requires users to be present when paying for something.
  • Mobile wallets utilize many layers of encryption and security to ensure that transactions are safe.

The Litecard service can be used in most parts of the world in a variety of different industries. Any organisation that distributes physical cards can use Litecard technology to issue a dynamic and engaging alternative via Mobile Wallets.

Applicable industries include but are not limited to: 

  • Government organisations and Licensing/accreditation bodies

  • Sporting associations (teams and peak bodies)

  • Unions

  • Charity member organisations

  • Peak Bodies

  • Educational institutes

  • Card issuing programs

Litecard has no MoQ! We are happy to serve and assist organisations to digitise membership and card programs across the world.

Litecard works exclusively with global Mobile Wallet providers to manage and implement digital card programs.

How does Litecard bring value to my business?

Offering an Apple Wallet or G Pay integration of your business' cards gives members the ability to store cards in their mobile device rather than carrying it around in their wallet. This is a unique offering only a few traditional companies have adopted thus far. Giving members the ability to do more with less shows that your organization cares about their members and amenities.

How does the client make sure they have a secure database with the litecard?

The litecard team has worked with many State/Federal Government Departments in Australia and around the world to develop and implement digital solutions. We are an accredited supplier to the NSW and VIC Government on the ICT Services Panel and eServices Registrar.

Migration to the new system? How does it work?

No two projects are the same. Most of our clients are in the following situations:
1. Have a mobile app
2. Physical membership card
3. No membership card at all

Our technology can exist alongside any of the 3 situations above.

We do 3 things to implement the system for a client:
A) Design the card logic, aethstetic and links with the client
B) Organise a key person of contact and 12 month marketing/notification plan
C) Decide how the cards are distributed (either via email, text, online integration, or web form)

What will happen to the current app which they spent millions to build, advertise etc.

Our technology can exist alongside any apps. The age of apps is coming to an end. People are underestimating the amount of work that is required in building apps, having to build different apps for different geographies and the training/effort required to bring the app to market.

Apps are a barrier to participation and entry for users, especially for the elderly. People want something that is faster, cheaper and easier to use.

Size of the opportunity, How to make the revenue from the technology? Potential earnings?

Brands using our technology have increased sales by improving the connections between member/license holders and the business/organisation. Promotions and content discovery have become more effective.

Clients with databases anywhere from 100,000+ have found an increase in web traffic and sales of up to 300% when implementing our technology.

For some clients, the card is a source of status and thus necessary for their ego, How could you make sure they have the same status with the tech?

Life is about experiences and technology is about connections. People who hold credentials and memberships are looking for value when they support their brands or hobbies.

Our technology helps both end-users and businesses/Governments streamline digital transformation in a way everyone can participate, save money and make money.

What if I don't need NFC capability?

Our unique offering integrates to almost any business system and we can cater to any technical requirements regarding the implementation of our technology. We offer our solution with and without NFC/RFID capabilities. If you require an aesthetic unique identifiable ID, membership or loyalty card, we can cater for your brand.

Can people copy and duplicate NFC tags?

If an NFC card is stored in your Apple Wallet or G Pay wallet, it is protected under a layer of security such as a Face ID, Fingerprint or Passcode. Access to a card's download link can be secured behind a login portal (e.g. student/staff/member portal) and also limited to 1 download per member.

Can my Staff or Student ID be in my Mobile Wallet?

Absolutely, Apple Wallet and G Pay wallets are an emerging technology, if your Staff or Student ID isn't in your mobile device, it's only a matter of time until it is available organization-wide.

How does the back-end channel look?

Our software is all cloud-based. This means we can protect and store data in any country and deploy our solution remotely whenever required.

Could they purchase anything while in the wallet and using the card?

Yes and no. If clients require payment cards, we have access to private APIs which enable the NFC/RFID technology in mobile devices to develop a solution like this. Clients often ask for only Membership, license or ID cards with no payment capability.

What will happen to members who don’t sign up with the NEW Technology? Will they have a problem later on?

Mobile memberships and credentials are the next natural step of evolution in technology. The digital shift has already begun with apps becoming a source of truth for credentials and compliance.

We leverage these apps to make this technology shift easier to manage and more beneficial to businesses and end-users.

Has it been developed in Australia?

All our technology is created in Melbourne Australia. Our team of software developers, project managers and sales staff are all based in our Docklands office.

Is it a tailor-made technology? White label?

We tailor our technology to each client. Most clients will have different requirements and needs. Our partners can white label our architecture which connects and converts databases to digital cards to on-sell our solution or recommend clients to us.

It's time for change.

Plastic cards are harming our planet and stopping your organisation from reaching a higher potential.
