D-Wave Quantum Inc. (NYSE: QBTS) and Satispay Build Quantum Hybrid Application Designed to Optimize Customer Rewards Initiatives

  • Application showed an improvement of 50% in customer rewards program effectiveness for the same amount of budget
  • Italian fintech company Satispay anticipates that its internal teams will use the application weekly when the company transitions it into production
  • D-Wave’s suite of services is backed by two decades of quantum technology development and over ten years of customer feedback, which have been incorporated to create the industry’s first quantum computer designed for commercial business applications

D-Wave Quantum (NYSE: QBTS), a leader in quantum computing systems, software, and services and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, recently announced that it is working with Satispay, the leading Italian fintech unicorn revolutionizing mobile payments, to build a quantum-hybrid application designed to optimize customer rewards initiatives (https://ibn.fm/u15OM).

Using D-Wave’s constrained quadratic model (“CQM”) hybrid solver, the application showed an improvement of 50% in customer rewards programs for the same amount of budget – identifying more effective approaches to Satispay’s rewards programs and the goal of increasing membership of its payment network.

Satispay’s internal teams are anticipating to use the application weekly when the company transitions it into production. The quantum-hybrid application comes as Satispay’s adoption is on the rise in countries including Italy and France – with consumers and businesses looking for a seamless, secure, and easy way to send, receive, and spend money.

Murray Thom, vice president of quantum business innovation at D-Wave, underlined that digital payments are one of the fastest-growing developments in financial services. “By applying the power of quantum-hybrid technology to optimize Satispay’s customer acquisition strategies, D-Wave is assisting one of Europe’s top fintech companies unlock a competitive advantage and bring its independent payment network to more customers, faster,” Thom added.

The D-Wave Advantage(TM) quantum computer is built from two decades of quantum technology development and over ten years of customer feedback to deliver the first quantum computer designed for commercial business applications. The system features a processor architecture with over 5,000 qubits and 15-way qubit connectivity. Since 2018, Advantage has been available to users through the Leap(TM) quantum cloud service – which delivers immediate, real-time access to Advantage and the company’s quantum hybrid solver service with enterprise-class performance and scalability.

“It is our mission at Satispay to simplify payments to improve everyone’s life, and we’re looking at innovative ways we can accelerate adoption and usage of our network to quickly build out our market footprint in service of that vision,” said Satispay founder and CEO Dario Brignone. “Together with D-Wave, we’ve built a quantum-hybrid application that has demonstrated immediate business value at scale, helping us more effectively manage our rewards program to save money, improve rewards appreciation, and drive increased membership.”

Leap enables developers proficient in Python to start building and running quantum applications today. The secure and seamless cloud-based connection allows users to easily start solving complex problems of up to one million variables and 100,000 constraints. D-Wave’s CQM hybrid solver is available through its Leap quantum cloud service.

D-Wave’s relentless pursuit of practical quantum computing has resulted in its technology being used today by some of the world’s most advanced enterprises – including numerous Forbes Global 2000 companies. D-Wave’s commercial customers include blue-chip industry leaders like Mastercard, Deloitte, ArcelorMittal, Siemens Healthineers, Unisys, Accenture, BBVA, NEC Corporation, Pattison Food Group Ltd., DENSO and Lockheed Martin.
