IT service management company PT Visionet Data International has launched a new mPOS payment service, called Mobey, across Indonesia.
The new solution, rolled out in partnership with mPOS solutions provider SmartPesa, is designed for merchants and other financial entities facing infrastructural challenges.
Visionet sales director Miko Yanuar said: “Mobey allows Visionet to expand its offerings to financial institutions by adding managed mPOS and payment services across Indonesia.
“Coupled with SmartPesa’s cutting edge technology and deep knowledge of emerging markets, we are well positioned to provide banks and merchants in Indonesia with next-generation payment and agency banking solutions.”
The Mobey mPOS service will help the banks to expand their network by including around 160 Visionet’s service points across Indonesia.
It will also enable the merchants to provide card payment services at a much lesser cost than using the EDC terminals.
Additionally, all businesses can utilise the Mobey app to offer a better user experience as well as utilise standalone and mini-POS bundled options for retail payments.
SmartPesa co-founder and CEO Barry Levett said: “SmartPesa is continually looking to drive financial inclusion to better lives in emerging markets.
“This partnership with Visionet will help solve real-world practical problems by introducing our innovative technologies to the grassroots, and bringing much-needed payment solutions to Indonesia.”
