ANZ, Fiserv Extend Mobile Financial Services in Pacific Region (Aug. 1, 2013)
Aug. 1, 2013
Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ) now is providing mobile financial services to unbanked and underbanked consumers in Samoa, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands and Papua New Guinea, using Mobiliti Reach from Fiserv, a Brookfield, Wis.-based provider of financial services technology.
Under ANZ’s goMoney brand, Mobiliti Reach enables consumers to send money to family and friends, make purchases, pay bills, purchase airtime top-up vouchers and view account information on their mobile phones, among other functions.
“The success of the ANZ goMoney service among both existing customers and consumers with no prior banking relationships demonstrates the potential of the mobile channel to create new revenue sources and reach new customer segments,” said Nick Wilde, Fiserv senior vice president, International Group. ANZ has offered Fiserv-supported mobile financial services to its customers since 2006.
Fiserv announced this week that it signed 98 Mobiliti clients in the second quarter ended June 30, for a total of 188 for the year. The company also reported Q2 revenue of $1.20 billion, compared with $1.09 billion during the same period last year. Adjusted revenue was $1.14 billion in the quarter, compared with $1.02 billion in 2012—an increase of 12 percent.
