The countries that saw the biggest increases in downloads were in Europe, with Spain, Germany, UK, Romania and Bulgaria all seeing large increases.
Fobi CEO Rob Anson stated: “The landscape is shifting to contactless, cashless and mobile first operations and as a result we are witnessing accelerated growth in the mobile wallet pass sector due to the digital transformation that is ongoing. The mobile wallet provides a convenient, secure way to streamline operations and deliver enhanced levels of personalized engagement directly to users, and even to their mobile phone’s lock screen.
