Microsoft and M-Com have announced a solution offering that is designed to provide banks and payment processors with mobile payments functionality – creating more opportunities for banks to offer mobile payments services to their customers and maximise their revenue opportunities.
Using Microsoft technologies, M-Com BankAnywhere provides an end-to-end mobile payments solution for the banking industry worldwide. The solution is billed as providing best-practice security and risk management capabilities, in order to ensure that banks can effectively manage the exposure of their brands and services in the emerging market for mobile technology. Microsoft says that, as a fully integrated solution, it reduces the total cost of ownership (TCO) for the mobile channel for banks.
M-Com offers global support for the solution and, in doing so, uses Microsoft resources and best practices in its deployment. The use of standard Microsoft technology, including Windows and Microsoft SQL Server, as well as Internet Information Services (IIS), allows enterprise users of BankAnywhere to benefit from existing industry-standard technology management tools and practices.
