Monitise to deliver NFC m-payments solution for Desjardins

Partnering Desjardins Group

Monitise plc has reached an agreement with Desjardins Group, Canada’s leading cooperative financial group, to develop and deploy NFC mobile payment capabilities to its members and clients.

“We are pleased to soon be able to offer our members and clients a mobile payment solution that is not only reliable and efficient, but also very accessible, because it will be supported by several mobile telephone providers,” said Patrice Dagenais, Vice-President, Payment Solutions and Business Partnerships at Desjardins Card Services.

The mobile payment solution, which will be launched in 2014, is the first step towards enhancing Desjardins’s mobile payment offer. The development of this new mobile payment solution is in line with the Canadian mobile payment guidelines announced in May 2012 by Desjardins and the major Canadian banks. These guidelines aim to guarantee security, reliability and ease of use for merchants and consumers alike.
