Novae, a U.S.-based fintech and insurtech firm, announced on Wednesday it has launched Onboard, which is described as an all-digital platform that allows bank cardholders to access all their card-related benefits by simply downloading the app and entering the first six digits of their cards.
According to novae, Onboard allows clients to visualize not only their bank card benefits, but also to instantly activate and access a comprehensive suite of travel-related benefits that include medical emergencies, baggage loss or delay and other bank benefits, all enabled automatically once they download and activate through the app. For a small annual fee, Onboard users can choose to access an expanded travel-related benefits membership offering up to 5% in rewards when booking travel and up to 35% in discounts on unparalleled travel content.
While sharing more details about the new platform, Paola Duran, novae’s Head of Global Product & Marketing Solutions, stated:
“Consumers are frustrated by not being aware of the benefits available through their cards. Making card benefits automatic, easy and transparent is our ultimate value proposition, and an app was the perfect vehicle for delivering it to users on the road around the world.”

The company reports that it leverages “disruptive” technologies to provide mobile transactions, communications, and other business-consumer interactions.
