Richardson, TX (PRWEB) March 06, 2013
Awarded at the ongoing Prepaid Expo in Orlando, DeviceFidelity’s mobile enabled moneto Prepaid MasterCard® has been adjudged the winner of the 2013 Paybefore Award for the “Best in Category – Outstanding Mobile Wallet and Application”. DeviceFidelity’s moneto solution was favored over the other two outstanding mobile application winners, PayPal and H&R Block, to receive the “Best In Category” recognition of excellence in the worldwide prepaid and emerging payments industry.
“Our moneto offering is uniquely positioned in the industry and we are absolutely delighted to have been recognized by PayBefore for the unrivaled value the moneto prepaid MasterCard and the moneto mobile app offers its users,” said Youri Bebic, General Manager of Prepaid Card Services for DeviceFidelity. “We plan on adding even more innovative and consumer-centric services to our prepaid platform to ensure the moneto prepaid MasterCard outperforms its newly acquired reputation as the most outstanding mobile wallet and application on the market.”
To decide moneto as the winner, the finalists in the category were voted upon by a panel of five judges, along with a sixth judge comprised of online votes for Best in Category on the PayBefore website. The instant money transfer, instant cash back and NFC mobile payment upgrade features in the moneto wallet were cited as key differentiators.
“The moneto prepaid MasterCard and mobile app combines the best of GPR prepaid with free person-to-person transfers and instant cloud-based cash back,” said Marilyn Bochicchio, Paybefore’s CEO “moneto brings the immediacy of mobile to a prepaid financial product.”
