It’s time to celebrate innovation again, as Slush 2018 starts in Helsinki tomorrow 4.11.2018. This year, OP Lab brings innovations that emphasize the power of machines and technology to make us more human.


Pivo Face Payments enable payments with facial recognition

By visiting our stand at 7A.4 you’ll be able to try how Face recognition enabled payments work in practice. Our pilots and tests give strong indication that it will be the future of payments as it provides convenience that mobile payments or cards won’t be able to deliver. When visiting our stand, you’ll be able to use the new payment method to make donations to a great cause: Startup Refugees for Women.

At the OP Lab stand there’s also opportunities to see what else OP Financial Group has worked on during the last year, including the new Pohjola Sairaala mobile app that is AI-aided and smart for your convenience. There’ll be also opportunity to learn more about the job openings available in OP Financial Group.

On Tuesday, OP Lab with Visa, Microsoft, Holvi and LVS brokers are putting together a once in a lifetime after-party where we invite the fintechies in Slush to join a live recording of the Fintech Insider podcast. At the end of the evening we’ll also have Visa Everywhere Initiative finals, so it is THE party to join.

If you want to meet during Slush, please make sure to connect via Twitter or Slush meeting platform. We’d be happy to learn how we can collaborate on making best use of technology to make our services even more human.

Enjoy Slush!
