Cerence, AI for a world in motion announced that it has expanded its Cerence Pay partner ecosystem with the addition of P97 Networks, the leader in cloud-based mobile commerce, in-vehicle payments, and digital marketing solutions. With the integration of P97’s mobility services platform, Cerence Pay will connect drivers to safe, seamless payments through the P97 mobile commerce platform currently available to more than 30% of the retail fuel sites across the US.

Cerence Pay delivers a secure, voice-powered, contactless payment experience in the car that leverages AI to anticipate drivers’ needs and provide a seamless payment transaction from intent to authentication via voice and facial biometrics and through to purchase. Leveraging P97’s mobile commerce platform, integrated with most of the major fuel brands, Cerence Pay enables drivers to find a fueling location, learn about pricing and amenities, choose a pump, and pay – directly from the car and using their voice. Drivers can also add a car wash or coffee or other convenience items from the gas station’s store for pickup or curbside delivery.
