Yandex.Money Moves Mobile Wallet Forward with Moven Enterprise

Moven Enterprise announced this week that it has partnered with mobile wallet company Yandex.Money to power smart banking technology for the Russia-based company.

Yandex.Money will leverage Moven Enterprise’s open APIs to embed new features and functionality into its mobile app, pushing new product offers that extend beyond the company’s flagship mobile wallet. The partnership will give Yandex.Money’s mobile wallet offering a boost by giving its 46 million mobile wallet customers access to real-time personalized financial management tools.

“Yandex.Money is no longer just an electronic wallet, as we offer options familiar to banking clients such as money transfers, card issuance, cashback, payment for various goods and services,” Ivan Glazachev, Yandex.Money CEO explained. “We also offer users the opportunity to choose the app design theme, make investments, and now effectively control their funds.” The new features will also encourage users to adopt existing mobile wallet offerings.

Moven CEO, Marek Forysiak, said, “Moven is excited to bring our AI-driven, smart banking solutions into Yandex’s existing app by leveraging our open APIs to create a customized user experience. Their robust initiative adds a new level of sophistication and capabilities including personalized advice and financial wellness capabilities to help their customers spend, save and live smarter.”

Launched at FinovateFall 2016, Moven Enterprise takes a software-as-a-service approach by allowing banks and financial services companies to white-label its financial management technology. Moven Enterprise offers tools to help banks engage with their existing customers, acquire new customers, and drive revenue through their mobile channel.

At FinovateAsia 2017, Moven Enterprise demonstrated a new credit offering, chatbot functionality, and an expansion of its wish list feature that leverages behavioral gamification. Last month, the company announced it will bring its digital banking platform to banks in Latin America, APAC, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe.

A joint venture between Yandex and Sberbank, Yandex.Money is the largest online payment service in Russia. At FinovateSpring 2013 Yandex.Money launched Twym, an application that allows users to instantly transfer money in Rubles via Twitter.

Moven Enterprise Goes Global

Smart banking solutions provider Moven Enterprise, a division of Movencorp, is leveraging its success with banks in Canada and New Zealand to help more FIs globally improve customer engagement and build new revenue streams. The company announced this week that it will be bringing its AI-powered digital banking platform to banks in Latin America, APAC, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe – buoyed by a $10 million investment from SBI Group and the establishment of SBI Moven Asia earlier this year.

“Moven has a proven model for success. Several of our client banks’ results tell the story – from significantly reduced attrition rates, positive customer engagement and increased savings behaviors and reduction in spending, Moven is well-positioned to roll-out our enterprise offering to banks around the world,” Moven CEO Marek Forysiak said.

Moven founder Brett King underscored SBI Group’s role in accelerating the company’s opportunities overseas. “SBI’s partnerships with more than 60 banks across Asia give us the opportunity to deploy our solutions quickly and efficiently, offering our Asian customers tailored and localized support and attention,” King said.

Moven Enterprise offers a customizable digital banking platform that enables FIs to boost engagement with solutions to better help their customers manage their spending and savings.  Available as a white-label, software-as-a-service offering, the technology supports instant mobile signup to make new customer acquisition less costly and more efficient, as well as a customer engagement engine that provides real-time spending and savings insights. Moven Enterprise demonstrated new capabilities of the platform – including a wishlist that uses behavioral gamification, a chatbot feature called ChatUI, and a new credit feature – at FinovateAsia 2017.

Founded in 2011, Moven is headquartered in New York City. The company has raised more than $35 million in capital over time, and includes TD Bank and Westpac among its partners.

Moven Enterprise Teams with SBI Holdings to Launch in Japan

Financial engagement and digital experiences platform Moven Enterprise has partnered with Japanese financial services company SBI Holdings, which owns Softbank and is partnered with more than 60 financial institutions across Asia.

This is part of a joint venture agreement between the two in which SBI will bring Moven’s technology into Japan under the Moven brand, offering mobile banking tools to domestic and international banks. The agreement also gives SBI Holdings one of six seats on Moven’s board of directors.

Moven has already partnered with numerous financial institutions, including TD Bank and Westpac in New Zealand. Today’s agreement, however, with SBI is Moven’s first foray into Asia.

Launched at FinovateFall 2016, Moven Enterprise takes a software-as-a-service approach by allowing banks and financial services companies to white-label its financial management technology. Moven Enterprise offers tools to help banks engage with their existing customers, acquire new customers, and drive revenue through their mobile channel.

At FinovateAsia 2017, Moven Enterprise demonstrated a new credit offering, chatbot functionality, and an expansion of its wish list feature that leverages behavioral gamification.

American Banker announced today that Moven’s consumer-facing brand– a challenger bank that launched in 2011– is seeking to acquire a bank, though it has not disclosed which. The company’s founder, Brett King, said the reasoning behind a bank purchase would be to help Moven scale faster and access more services for its customers.

Moven last demoed its consumer-facing platform at FinovateFall 2016 with the launch of a daily digest feature and real-time receipt capabilities. Last June, the company’s enterprise offering, in partnership with Westpac, received the CANSTAR 2017 Innovation Excellence Award.
