Rapidsoft Systems, Inc. in Partnership with Global Systems Solutions Ltd. Launches Mobile Money
Rapidsoft Systems, Inc. in partnership with Global Systems Solutions Ltd, Launches Mobile solutions for money transfer and bill payment for the financial companies such as banks and the post offices.
The mobile payment software can utilize data networks when cellular data networks are available. However, it can also work using SMS based transactions on low end feature phones or in areas where there are no cellular data support. The deployment of mobile wallet solution can help banks and financial institutions reach both banking and non-banking subscribers to receive money in a secure and safe manner.
The Mobile Wallet’s user-friendly interface enables mobile subscribers to make secure and easy peer-to-peer money transfers and pay every day utility bills from their mobile phones. The Mobile Wallet can be used for making or receiving payment of many regular payments. For Instance, subscribers can arrange to have their pensions and other regular income paid directly into their mobile wallet -an innovative feature. This greatly empowers banks and financial institutions to connect with unbanked in rural areas and increase their reach at a very low cost. The system has been designed with security and end user convenience in mind. The initial system deployment/pilot launch of services is being planned with banks in two Latin American countries and negotiations with other financial institutions are under way.
The mobile money transfer is simply another way to send money. It is a transfer of money to a receiver in which the funds are deposited into a “virtual” wallet accessible by a consumer's mobile phone. The benefits of a mobile wallet are:
- Lower cost for remittances
- Stimulate convergence of the financial and mobile industries
- Help in establishing optimal regulatory frameworks for all participants
- Stimulate innovation in the delivery of mobile financial solutions
- Bring financial services to many unbanked in developing countries for the first time
Commenting on the development, Mr. Gurbinder Mavi, VP of Sales and Marketing for Rapidsoft Systems said, "We believe that Mobile Wallet is an ideal solution in a modern world where people are always on move. There is often a need to transfer money from a migrant family member to other family members. Mobile Wallet can reduce the cost of money transfers, and reduce the long delays in money transfers. The deployment of mobile payment services can create a win-win situation for everyone. We are open to partnership with cellular operators, banks and other service providers"
Jules Charville, President of GSS, Ltd. commented, "In association with Rapidsoft Systems, we offer a solution that is a feature rich, easy to use and deploy. During development, we took the concerns and needs of an average consumer who may not be very technology savvy. Secondly, banks need a secure solution that is as secure as all other operations of banking systems. To achieve that we have integrated highest level of security at all levels. We believe that we have a well implemented solution for banks, operators and other financial companies that wants to offer such services to their subscribers in any part of the world."
