P97 is one of the leading providers of mobile commerce solutions, connecting mobility service providers to their customers by enabling mobile payments from a mobile device or the connected car. By easing the purchasing process, they enable their partners to achieve increased sales, greater brand loyalty, and lower operating costs.

P97 partners with leading mobile wallets, cloud-based payment systems, and other payment providers to ensure mobile payments are more secure than traditional payment methods. The PetroZone® platform is Payment Card Industry (PCI) and Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV) compliant, and runs on Microsoft Azure Cloud Services with multifactor authentication to secure cardholder data.
“We are excited to have RCI Bank and Services as our partner,” says Nick Allen, Managing Director, Europe, Middle East & Africa at P97 Networks. “The connected car is the next step in the evolution of driving. RCi understands that creating a frictionless buying experience is a critical feature in their connected car strategy as drivers are increasingly demanding greater convenience and instant gratification in their daily buying experiences.”
