Portland, OR (PRWEB) March 6, 2008
Vesta Corporation, a global pioneer and leader in value-added payment solutions, today announced that it has been selected by Boost Mobile, LLC, to manage phone- and Internet-based recharge transactions for the operator's entire product line.
Scheduled to launch later this month, the program will introduce new services and enable secure, convenient phone- and Internet-based account replenishments via multiple payment devices.
"Vesta's technology will further complement our Re-Boost offering with innovative and enhanced services for Boost customers," said Neil Lindsay, Vice President, Product Management, Boost Mobile.
The collaboration streamlines Boost's current credit recharge model by eliminating the need for customers to register over the phone with a live agent. Additionally, new capabilities will be introduced that enable Boost customers to utilize debit cards and electronic checks as payment options, expanding customers' options for replenishing via phone, WAP, or Internet. Boost will also introduce a feature allowing customers to receive a "gift" of Re-Boost® dollars. This proprietary Vesta feature allows a subscriber's friends and family to add funds to an account in real time.
"Like Boost, Vesta has earned a reputation for innovation in the prepaid industry," said Doug Fieldhouse, Vesta's President and CEO. "To that end, we look forward to working together to produce new products and services to benefit Boost's customers for many years to come."
