Mobike and Gemalto collaborate to bring IoT connectivity to bike-sharing services beyond China

Amsterdam, June 28, 2017 – Gemalto (Euronext NL0000400653 GTO), the world leader in digital security and Mobike, world’s largest smart bike sharing platform announced extending its partnership in secure internet connection for Mobike’s fleet of bikes.


Gemalto’s Cinterion M2M module and Machine Identification Module (MIM(TM)) are embedded in the smart bike lock to transmit location data and operate the lock remotely. As Gemalto’s modules are pre-certified with all major network operators worldwide, this collaboration allows Mobike to launch the service worldwide faster and more easily, and other connected services can be added in the future.

Smart solution fuel the booming bike-sharing economy

Mobike’s IoT based bike-share solution allows users to conveniently locate the nearest bikes in real time at their exact location by using a Mobike app. This is particularly important as, unlike other bike sharing services, such IoT-based solutions can also allow the Mobike platform to smartly monitor the health status of each bike, manage hot spots, and distribute its fleet of bikes based on user demand for better safety, high operation efficiency, and meeting unmet “last mile” urban mobility needs.

“Innovation has put us in the leading position and made us the largest smart bike-sharing service provider in China and the world. Our next milestone is to launch our IoT based solution in more countries worldwide, and provide a convenient service to commuters and contribute to a healthier lifestyle,” remarks Joe Xia, co-founder and CTO of Mobike. “Gemalto’s track record in delivering end-to-end secure connectivity and pre-certified solutions help make seamless connections within the global market. Gemalto is with us in China, and as we expanded into our first international markets – Singapore and Manchester. Our ongoing collaboration will help Mobike’s International expansion plans.”

Mobike has experienced a tremendous success in China and we feel this can be replicated in other markets with growing demand for more convenient and environmentally-friendly commuting,” says Suzanne Tong-Li, SVP Greater China and Korea for Mobile Services and IoT and China President, Gemalto. “Connected bikes hold huge potential for additional mobility capabilities, such as on-demand connectivity, biometric authentication, user-preference-based personalization services and other mobility services.

Ingenico Group invests in Joinedapp, a California-based start-up, to shape the future of conversational commerce

Press release
Paris, June 28, 2017

Ingenico Group invests in Joinedapp, a California-based start-up, to shape the future of conversational commerce

Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346-ING), the global leader in seamless payment, today announced its investment in Joinedapp, a start-up located in Palo Alto, California whose enterprise e-commerce solutions enable brands and retailers to connect with customers on their preferred mobile messaging apps. Joinedapp’s chatbot technology offers large and SMB merchants a scalable solution to engage, nurture, and monetize audiences across social messaging.

With more than 3 billion users, messaging apps have surpassed social networks as the dominant mobile platforms. As e-mail and social media marketing channels have matured, chatbots are considered to be the next frontier in e-commerce sales and distribution. While chatbots have thus far been limited to certain customer services use cases, Joinedapp’s enhanced AI enables an end-to-end frictionless e-commerce solution known as conversational commerce-consumers engage, browse, and pay-all within a messaging app. Many of the world’s largest retailers are prioritizing the use of chatbots in their e-commerce strategies to drive growth.

“Conversational commerce is part of the innovation strategy of Ingenico Group for the coming years.” said Michel Léger, EVP Innovation at Ingenico Group. “By embedding payments directly into bots, merchants remove conversion-killing steps from the purchase process and enable a seamless consumer experience. We are also convinced that Joinedapp’s channel-agnostic platform is a key market differentiator with a very high potential for merchants.”

When Ingenico Group and Joinedapp first met a few months ago, both were investigating the application of artificial intelligence technologies to increase sales conversion. Recognizing that a seamless checkout experience within messaging platforms could drive higher conversion rates and incremental sales, the two quickly entered a partnership to develop a fully integrated payment solution. Embedded into messaging bots, this solution leverages Ingenico ePayments Connect technology and its full portfolio of international and alternative payment methods. It removes the need for the consumer to leave the messaging app to complete a purchase. Furthermore, as it is compliant with all major messaging apps – including Facebook Messenger, Line, Telegram, Kik, Skype, Slack and WeChat, this solution allows merchants to create their messaging bot user experience once and deploy it across all networks.

Arash Hassibi, CEO & Founder of Joinedapp, noted: “We’re empowering many of the world’s largest retailers and brands to connect, engage, and convert customers across the world’s most popular messaging platforms. Ingenico Group’s partnership will allow us to strengthen our unique value proposition and develop new use cases across more verticals.”

By leading the Seed funding round of Joinedapp and therefore supporting its capacity for growth, Ingenico intends to deepen their partnership as well as accelerate research and joint projects.

Global Environmental Remediation Market Will Reach USD 122.80 Billion by 2022: Zion Market Research

Sarasota, FL, June 28, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Zion Market Research has published a new report titled “Environmental Remediation Market by Environmental Medium (Soil and Groundwater) for Oil and Gas, Agriculture, Automotive, Industrial, Chemical Processing, Construction and Land Development and Other Applications: Global Industry Perspective, Comprehensive Analysis, and Forecast, 2016-2022”. According to the report, global environmental remediation market was valued at around USD79.57 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach approximately USD 122.80 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 7.5% between 2017 and 2022. 
In the past, many nuclear activities were developed without appropriate consideration of their environmental aspects and impacts. Operations were run in situations in which laws and regulations did not exist. As a result, radiologically contaminated sites were created. Such sites have also been created by nuclear & radiological accidents, and by nonnuclear industries in which human activities have increased the potential for exposure from naturally occurring radioactive materials compared to the unaltered state. As contaminated sites can ultimately lead to undesired health effects for local people, appropriate actions must be taken. Thus, environmental remediation becomes need to clean up the contaminated sites. The main objective of environmental remediation is established on the basis of the nature and extent of the contamination, the water resources that are currently or potentially threatened, and the potential for human and environmental exposure. These quantitative goals define the extent of clean-up that is required to satisfy the established objectives.

European Environment Agency (EEA) is cleaning up contaminated sites. In last 30 years, more than 80000 sites have been cleaned up. Heavy metals and mineral oil are the most frequent soil contaminants found at investigated sites, while mineral oil and chlorinated hydrocarbons are the most frequent contaminants found in groundwater.
