VocaLink, the international payments provider, has partnered with Clairmail, a mobile banking and payments solutions company, to enable banks to use Clairmail’s Smart Client technology to deliver new services to their customers, such as person-to-person (P2P) mobile payments, enabled by VocaLink’s real-time capabilities, such as Faster and Immediate Payments and multi-channel service options.
Working with Clairmail, VocaLink will further expand on its strategy of enabling financial services institutions to implement and benefit from end-to-end, inter-bank, real-time payments solutions. Organisations in the banking sector can now integrate sophisticated mobile payment solutions from Clairmail with VocaLink’s Immediate Payments and Multi-Channel Gateway.
Marc Terry, managing director, global transaction services at VocaLink, said: “As smartphone sales continue to soar and consumer demand for mobile banking increases, financial services organisations can no longer ignore the huge potential of the mobile channel when it comes to delivering a successful consumer payments strategy. Our partnership with Clairmail will enable banks to effectively deliver innovative banking solutions, benefiting from a truly end-to-end solution.”
