Episode 1

47° 22’ 1” N / 8° 32’ 42” O – Bellevue, Zurich: ~12,000 transactions per day

74° Staying mobile and up-to-date – Laura tries on a pair of ankle boots in the shoe shop. She quickly checks the MyAccount mobile app of Viseca to see if she can still afford these boots after yesterday’s shopping spree in a department store. The purchase she made with her credit card is already listed and she decides to go ahead and buy the boots. She then runs for the tram while looking forward to going out at night.

166° Getting around better – There’s no way she is going to miss this tram! Because the ticket machine also accepts credit cards, Manuela does not have to go to the effort of searching for small change. She doesn’t lose any valuable time and can be back in the office faster.

265° Less complicated evaluation – Restaurateur Frank is evaluating the card payments in his café. With the myTransactions module for the free AdunoAccess online portal all it takes is a few clicks of the mouse. A brief look at the status overview also confirms that all the payment terminals for his chain of cafés are operational. Satisfied, he takes the time to enjoy an espresso at an outside table.

289° Smarter solution – Alexandra loves her small but luxurious new rental apartment in Zurich Oberdorf. Her friend Mia is happy that the move went smoothly, as she was the one to suggest to Alexandra that she finance the removal expenses, which are high in the short term, with a loan from cashgate. Good advice does not have to be expensive.

310° More frequent surprises – Jeremy studies business economics and likes the tomato and rocket sandwiches at Frank’s Café. With the “surprize” bonus programme

from Viseca, Jeremy can collect bonus points every time he uses his credit card. When paying for his sandwiches, the payment terminal soon offers him a discount on his meal. This is the kind of surprise that Jeremy likes.

Episode 2

47° 10’ 28” N / 8° 6’ 30” O – Bahnhofstrasse, Sursee: ~1,000 transactions per day

36° Better financed – Anna loves her job as a features journalist, but her goal is to eventually get good reviews of her own for one of her plays. She therefore plans to study theatre production part-time at a private college next year. For relaxation she walks her dog Luna every day, while

financial support for her studies is available from cashgate.

88° Moving more quickly – For Elias, riding his racing bike is the best way to relax from his job. When he is not speeding along on two wheels, he advises financial service providers on IT security. However, he seldom enters a bank as a client: for him, everything happens online and mobile. These days, “single sign-on” even saves him the effort of having to re-enter his password, as he can now go directly from e-banking to MyAccount.

186° Faster progress – A subscription to a fashion magazine would make sense for Carla, but she continues to buy single issues, depending on whether the title story catches her eye. And also because paying at the kiosk is so fast. All she has to do is tap her contactless credit card against the payment terminal – no need to sign a slip. Her friend Sara likes this too, as their shopping trip is not interrupted for long.

263° Practically one – The mobile device is a phone is a computer is a camera. But in both the countryside and the city, smartphones will soon also have other useful functions.

Such as mobile contactless payment. The Aduno Group turns the smartphone into a mobile wallet that can be used to pay for purchases, redeem vouchers or collect bonus points – everything with just one device.

311° Financed more securely – For a long while Diego has planned to replace his old small car with a roomier station wagon so that there will be enough space for the child that he and his wife Lena are expecting. Finally it happened: daughter Alessa was born and Diego picked up his new car the next day. Leasing by cashgate makes this affordable.

Episode 3

46° 48’ 22” N / 7° 09’ 46” O – Schmid family, Fribourg: ~400 transactions a year

122° Cashless is better – They are fragile and very pretty – and they were also rather expensive: the small Masai statues which son Luca found at an antiques market. Dad, Marcus, needed all his skills to negotiate the price. And the Schmid family was pleasantly surprised when the trader took out a mobile Aduno payment terminal to process the payment.

254° More flexible control – Their oldest daughter Ladina wants to become a nurse. She is spending the few months until she turns 18 as an au pair in Madrid. Her prepaid credit card is practical and safer than cash. When the card is empty her parents can easily load it again from home – and this also teaches Ladina to stay within her budget.

269° Relaxed and prepared – The Schmids will go to sunny Florida on their next vacation. As always they booked the flight and hotel online and paid by credit card. This is not only convenient, but with the additional services on their credit card, all the family members are also insured against mishaps such as the cancellation of the trip, the loss of their luggage or an accident while on holiday. This means they can already start relaxing before they have even left home.

323° Processed faster – Mirjam Schmid uses online banking to confirm the e-bill for her credit card spending in the previous month. With “single sign-on” she can access MyAccount directly from the online banking platform of her bank. Today’s weekly shopping trip for household items is already listed in the MyAccount overview. Only husband Markus is faster. He has already popped the food they bought today in the oven and is checking to see if the roast chicken is ready.
