Gemalto says that says that it has been selected as the technology provider for the Mexican mobile banking service being set up by Am rica M vil, Banamex and Banco Inbursa.
The service, branded as "Transfer" enables financial transactions in real time from a mobile device through SMS messaging. Gemalto will be the technology provider in Mexico of Transfer´s transactional platform and is responsible for the service development, support and operation.
Transfer is based on Gemalto´s LinqUs mobile payment platform, which ensures that customers will be able to use their mobile accounts safely through different channels. The customer will also be able to manage his accounts through other self-service channels like interactive voice response and web sites.
"Transfer is a service that arises from the combination of two highly technologically sophisticated systems, with a large coverage: banking and telecommunications," said Daniel Hajj Aboumrad, CEO of América Móvil. "The great potential of Transfer is present not only in Mexico, but also in the rest of Latin America where, together, we have around 240 million customers."
