TransferTo’s Remittance Service Enables the Sender to Know How the Money is Spent

TransferToLogo2.jpgThis post is part of our live coverage of FinovateEurope 2015.

TransferTo showed how its Prepaid Electricity Remittance gives the sender more control over how recipients spend their money.

A major and recurring issue with money remittance is the sender not knowing how their money is spent.

TransferTo has developed a new service to overcome this problem whereby the sender can remit value for a specific purpose. We call it Value Remittance. TransferTo works directly with service providers to enable remote payment for services such as utilities, petrol, healthcare, school tuition, groceries, etc.

A great example of this is the Prepaid Electricity in Indonesia. Indonesian migrant workers in the Middle East send millions of rupees back to their families. Instead of sending money, TransferTo enables them to remotely top up the Prepaid Electricity meter of their loved ones back home.

 

Presenters: CEO Eric Barbier, and EVP Charles Damen, global business development

Jumio’s Netverify Makes Mobile Account Opening Easy

JumioLogo.jpgThis post is part of our live coverage of FinovateEurope 2015.

Jumio showed how Netverify makes it quick and easy for customers to open new accounts on their mobile device.

Jumio’s Netverify turns your customer’s mobile device into an ID-document-scanning terminal that instantly sees, scans, and extracts name and date of birth, and if present, address data. The data is instantly and neatly populated into the account-opening fields, making it quicker and easier for customers to complete applications.

Jumio also authenticates the ID document by determining that it is a bonafide, non-manipulated, and legitimate government-issued ID.
 
Account opening can be completed instantly so that customer sign-up momentum is not broken when a customer is asked to provide physical copies of ID documents.

 

Presenters: David Pope, marketing director, and John McIntosh, sales engineer
