Seventy percent of Americans believe that an all-in-one digital card is a better payment option than wearable technology (e.g. smart watches) for reasons including superior acceptance, security, card consolidation and ease of use.* Stratos takes payments using connected hardware to the next level, leveraging the efficiency and familiarity of a conventional payment card with the power and convenience of a mobile wallet.
Unique Stratos features include:
“Today’s mobile culture is all about convenience, intelligence and mobility, which is why Stratos seems so relevant,” said Bob Egan, Chief Research Officer of The Sepharim Group. “The Stratos Connected Card is the Fitbit for credit/debit and loyalty cards. The solution appears to bring 21st century modernization to cards we carry - and face it, we’re going to carry plastic cards for a long time. I think potential uses for Stratos go beyond simplifying payments such as identification, fraud reduction and access, that position the solution as a smart choice for on-the-go, connected consumers.”
The Stratos Card is the only connected card with a membership, which ensures your investment in Stratos is never obsolete. As the Stratos Platform advances, so does your Stratos Card, with free annual upgrades (or replacements) as new payment technology becomes available.
