StreetVendor - Mobile Financial Services platform

Today we put out a press release about StreetVendor, the product we've built together with financial services and international payments experts Mi-Pay.

The press release can be found if you click here, and to accompany it there is a video interview below:

StreetVendor is available in many languages including complex scripts such as Russian, Simplified Chinese and Greek. (This is never as easy as you might first expect when it comes to mobile development for multiple handsets)

Like most Masabi products, StreetVendor has been built to work on old and new handsets, including 7 year old handsets, right through to the latest smartphones. This makes it easier to source suitable handsets cheaply in areas that you wish to operate in.

The encrypted SMS back-up system enables reliable comms from anywhere in the world that you can get SMS reception, and without needing any local integration.

Most importantly - this means that from one central server you can roll out your new Remittance or Financial Services anywhere in the world that you comply with banking regulations, and can get SMS.

New authorised agents simply need to find a supported colour screen mobile phone, and load the software onto their phones just once using any install method from PC cable, WAP, Bluetooth or old fashioned CSD download. Then the rest of the application's work can be safely performed over SMS or any other available connection.

(Of course, all communications over SMS or GPRS are protected by EncryptME's 1024bit RSA and 256bit AES security)
