While payment and remittance habits do change slowly, an increasing number of consumers recognize the value of the mobile phone in facilitating transfers
Miami Beach, FL (Vocus) February 6, 2010
Denarii Systems, LLC announced today a new mobile to mobile money transfer service that enables customers to send money from their Avianca Cash card by using their mobile phone. Money transfers can be initiated from any Avianca Cash cardholder’s mobile phone. A completed transfer message is sent to the recipient’s mobile phone directing the recipient that funds are either available on the recipient’s Avianca Cash card (Card2Card) or can be picked up at participating banks in the US and Latin America (Card2Cash).
With the introduction of the Avianca Cash card in 2009, Sound Cash, Avianca and Denarii made a commitment to provide easy and accessible ‘banking’ services for all of their customers. Consumers are increasingly seeking improved ways to transfer funds to family, friends and associates. The new MMT service fulfils both by providing a safe and convenient solution for transferring money that does not require users to be tech-savvy.
“While payment and remittance habits do change slowly, an increasing number of consumers recognize the value of the mobile phone in facilitating transfers” said Jesus Pacheco, Managing Director of Sound Cash. Gerardo Grajales, CFO of Avianca added, “We serve the communities of Latin America and the US by facilitating exchange through transportation. There are few better ways to further our commitment of serving these communities than by facilitating monetary transfers between them using technology they are already comfortable with.” Angel Pacheco, Denarii’s CEO echoed both these sentiments by saying “Solutions must identify and fulfill consumer demands for safer, simpler and more convenient transfer and payment methodologies. The mobile phone is the next step in the evolution of electronic payment systems.”
