FinovateEurope 2018 / Touchě

Presenter Profile:

How they describe themselves: We are a young technology company, headquartered in Singapore with offices in Barcelona and Tokyo.

Touché launched in Q1 2017 in Singapore – we have clients and revenue today.

Our market expansion is driven by partnering exclusively with a bank/acquirer in each market to give them a competitive advantage and reach their merchant clients.

We are pursuing expansion to Japan, Australia, UAE, Europe and then USA later in 2019.

Touché is industry agnostic, but started in the F&B and private clubs.

Touché is global by design:

  • POC completed with a large bank in Singapore
  • POC in Q1 2018 in Australia and Japan

How they describe their product/innovation: Touché is the world’s first biometric-based solution that leverages users’ fingerprints to deliver personalised experiences to them – and additional profit to the merchants.

How? With a two-fingers-tap on a Touché device by users, we can:

  • Identify users & their preferences in <3 seconds
  • Transact any kind of payment through our certified device – once biometrically registered, no cards or phones required
  • Register users once for use globally
  • Manage loyalty/reward programmes & automatically apply discounts & entitlements – no vouchers, coupons, membership/loyalty cards required
  • Provide historic & predictive buying behaviour analysis for merchants
  • Recommend & activate targeted marketing campaigns
  • Increase security of the transaction

Product distribution strategy: Through financial institutions
