EastNets, a global provider of compliance and payment solutions, has announced that it has obtained the SWIFTReady – workers remittance conformance label for 2011.
en.MoRe is the first application in the workers’ remittances program offering a mobile remittance functionality where it demonstrated a real time remittance between a Telco operator and a receiving bank .
“The SWIFT certification for the en.MoRe mobile remittance solution validates EastNets’ commitment to deliver great-value solutions that satisfy the needs of our customers. en.MoRe is particularly important in Europe, Middle East and Americas as it will benefit millions of migrant workers who regularly conduct remittances to their home countries. EastNets will leverage its network of Mobile Operators globally to allow the maximum number of people to take advantage of this genuinely convenient, fast and secure mobile remittance solution,” said Hazem Mulhim, CEO, EastNets.
A partnership agreement was signed earlier this year with BICS (Belgacom International Carrier Services) to provide mobile money transfer services to millions of migrant workers worldwide. BICS operates an international network, with over 550 direct connections, including more than 250 routes to mobile operators, in more than 170 countries.
The first pilot implementation of the en.MoRe mobile remittance solution was completed successfully in cooperation with BICS starting the first Mobile Money Transfer corridor between Qatar and Pakistan.
EastNets will present case studies and discuss the impact of Mobile Money Transfer in changing the developing communities during its participation at Sibos 2011. Mobile Money is becoming an essential part in the everyday life of people in Africa and Asia, and is considered to be the fastest growing technology after social media.
