Rebar to Market Select Mobile Money Prepaid Mastercard® and Companion App
MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – April 4, 2017 -- Digiliti Money, Inc. (NASDAQ: CAFN), a leading mobile financial technology provider and Central Bank of Kansas City (CBKC) were selected as the mobile prepaid platform of choice by Rebar Interactive.
Rebar develops and manages web-based applications, properties and consumer services for finance, education and insurance markets, including acquisition marketing and application processing for many financial services companies.
By deploying SMM-X, Rebar is looking to leverage its existing cross-selling and direct marketing reach, which includes a large consumer audience applying for online, signal pay, and installment loans, as well as prepaid cards.
The Select Mobile Money-Express (SMM-X) platform features a reloadable prepaid card, the Select Mobile Money Prepaid Mastercard managed and issued by CBKC.
Available for iOS and Android systems, the mobile app has convenient features including secure access with fingerprint authentication and technology to find nearby reload locations and ATMs.
“We have used and evaluated competitive offerings, yet none can provide the high level of functionality, flexibility, and speed of delivery of SMM-X,” commented Victor Valdez, managing director of Rebar Interactive. “We also see a strong need for this solution in the markets and populations we serve, where many people are unbanked or seeking alternative financial services to meet their money management needs.”
According to Jeffrey Mack, president and CEO of Digiliti Money: “Our new partnership with Rebar reflects the value and unique capability of our mobile app and cloud-based platform. While there are many competitive prepaid programs in the marketplace, the practicality for organizations like Rebar are typically limited by low card usage and high abandonment. However, our Select Mobile Money platform changes that dynamic by linking the prepaid card to a robust mobile environment, thereby creating stickier customer relationships and extending the life of the card.”
A new study¹ recently released by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) revealed that the proportion of households using prepaid cards increased from 7.9% in 2013 to 9.8% in 2015, with the growth occurring broadly across socioeconomic and demographic groups. The FDIC reports that about one in five households in the survey identified as underbanked, and that these households are more likely to rely upon their mobile device as their primary means of managing their financial accounts.
The mobile technology provided by Digiliti Money is complemented by the prepaid card program managed by a team of payments experts in CBKC’s Central Payments Division. “We have joined with Digiliti Money to deliver a full-service payments solution that will enable community banks to offer the latest in mobile money technology,” said Trent Sorbe, president of Central Payments. “Our program with Rebar expands the reach of our prepaid program to both mobile-savvy customers as well as the more than 40 million underserved consumers using alternative financial products.”
The Select Mobile Money Prepaid Card is welcomed everywhere Debit Mastercard is accepted.
