Qpass Unveils Hands-Free Purchasing

Qpass, based in Seattle W.A., and Nuance of Menlo Park, C.A., have agreed to offer the Qpass TalkWallet, a voice-enabled e-wallet and transaction service for m-commerce, using speech recognition and voice authentication technology from Nuance.

The Nuance 7.0 natural language speech recognition engine and the Nuance Verifier voice authentication software will be integrated into Qpass’s m-commerce services. The Qpass TalkWallet will enable customers to make purchases by a simple verbal request, eliminating the need for PIN-based security and manual data input on mobile devices.

The Seattle company says that Qpass TalkWallet, which was built on its commerce service, stores, manages and transfers personal payment information for use during transactions, delivering it directly into a merchant’s existing order processing system.

"In today’s highly competitive wireless environment, the ability to just ‘say it’ and then ‘buy it’ provides carrier differentiation and consumer satisfaction, said Charles Franklin, chairman and CEO of Qpass. The Qpass TalkWallet, as a value-added service, will enable wireless carriers and voice portals to increase their transaction revenue, decrease churn, and retain loyal customers, he added.
