With the new B Infinite app powered by Wirecard, users will get a detailed real-time overview of their loyalty points, balance and purchases, allowing them to have better control and convenience over their own rewarding experience. In addition to this, users have the ability to manage their own omnichannel experience through B Infinite.

Yau Su Peng, Director of Retail and Innovation at Berjaya Corporation Berhad, said, “On the enhanced B Infinite rewards program network, there are many opportunities for merchants to communicate directly to consumers, as well as upsell and cross-sell to both consumers and the merchant’s customers. As part of the network, merchants are able to collaborate with global payment brands MasterCard and Wirecard. This allows them to access tools and abilities without the need to build anything themselves. I am delighted to now offer merchants and members this enhanced rewards experience with B Infinite.”
