All of our products are built while questioning industry standard technologies and benchmarking as early as the prototyping stage. This minimises the risk of surprises at the end of the development phase and continuously monitors the performance of all different components.
Since all software is designed to be highly available, different technologies are used throughout the products range. Some of those are developed in house, others rely on off-the-shelf products.
A keystone in all of our products and services is the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), which provides an actionable framework for developing a robust payment card data security process - including prevention, detection and appropriate reaction to security incidents.

We have created a map marking all stores that have a JPurse account. Each dot on the map is a store or a city. These stores have either a gift card program, a loyalty program or an e-money solution implemented, or have participated in a raffle contest. We currently have about 1400 merchants in our JPurse system.
The gift card module of JPurse is now active in following cities: Sint-Truiden, Brasschaat, Wervik, Lier, Kapellen, Roeselare and Wevelgem. The loyalty module is being used in all Hubo and Avantis stores, but also in the cities of Sint-Truiden, Tongeren and Veurne (as of November 16).
For the second year in a row, the E-money module of JPurse was used on the luxurious camping Rockvillage. With some new check-in functionality and updated features, this year's edition was another success, just like last year. No problems were encountered during 5 days of running in a live environment. On to next year!
JPurse is now used in all Avantis stores in Belgium. Customers receive a card when buying pellets. They buy pellets which are then added to their account. When they want to pick up sacks of pellets, they go to the warehouse, their card is scanned and the amount of bought pellets is reduced from their account. Gold members receive 10 extra sacks of pellets when they buy a full stack of pellet sacks, limited to twice a year.
All the Hubo stores are now working with the gift card module of JPurse. Gift cards are now digitally issued and claimed and can be used on the webshop. The issued amount can be variable and payments with the gift card can be done partially. The entire system is integrated into the existing cashier software that is running in all Hubo stores. Next up is the loyalty module, near the end of 2015.
The NMBS is testing the new ITRIS devices coming months. With these new devices, consisting of a tablet and a terminal, train conductors are able to better inform travelers of real time information about train traffic or incidents. Travelers can also buy train tickets because of the integrated payment terminal. At the end of 2015, all train conductors are supposed to be equiped with the new devices.
A new module of JPurse, the Raffle module, is now active. With this module, a merchant or a shopping mall can organise a contest. Customers can win all sorts of prices by completing a form on a website or at a mount present in the shopping mall or store. It is useful to gather lots of big data. Raffle is developed by JForce and facilitated by Het Opzet.
As of November, the city of Lier started with a gift card program which was developed by JForce and facilitated by Het Opzet. The centrumbon has a value of 10 or 25 euro and is printed by use of a Boca printer. They can also be bought via an unattented ticket machine. The centrumbon can be used at more than 100 merchants.

Customers can also win a car each month while shopping in Sint-Truiden.
The implementation of JPurse on RockVillage was a true success. JPurse proved its value to all the visitors, but also to the organisers.
