ORION Electronics Partners with LISNR to Enable Contactless E-Bike Authentication

ORION Electronics, a black-owned consumer electronics company that’s bringing the “Future of Urban Travel™” to US streets via their Smart E-Bike is partnering with LISNR for a secure, contactless authentication experience. 

As the mobility sector heats up, the micro-mobility sector is growing just as rapidly. A recent report by McKinsey states that by 2030 the micromoblity market is set to hit $300 Billion in the U.S. and $900 Billion globally. 

“As we try and tackle a problem faced by millions of consumers, it’s important for us to partner with companies that enable us to offer an affordable & frictionless customer experience. LISNR’s seamless authentication solution allows us to provide that experience as we scale across the U.S.” – Paul Perkins, CEO, ORION Electronics 

Looking to launch in Columbus first, ORION has plans to scale to 6 metropolitan areas in the upcoming 18 months. 

“ORION Electronics is uniquely positioned to take on the rapidly growing micro-mobility sector. As they scale their solution across the U.S., they’re aware of the importance authentication plays in their user experience. By partnering with LISNR they’ll be able to provide frictionless authentication to their growing consumer base”.  – Eric Allen, CEO, LISNR
